Rayman Legends delayed into 2013

Infendo

Disappointing news to report, but the wait for Rayman Legends just got a bit longer, as the title has been delayed into the Q1 of 2013. The game was originally slated to release shortly after the Wii U launch in late November/early December, whereas in the UK it was a launch title. But, the development team at Ubisoft Montpellier felt the need to polish the game to ensure it surpassed its predecessor.

In a statement from Ubisoft: “We’re happy that fans are excited about the game, and we are taking the time to make sure we deliver a game that lives up to and hopefully exceeds their expectations. We’ll have more details to share soon.”

This delay, however, does not change the amount of Wii U North American launch titles, which still remain at 23. Only 12 titles will now be available when the console launches in the UK.

To ease the slight annoyance of this news, enjoy the above Rayman Legends Gamescom trailer.
