Ubisoft has a Rayman Legends bonus for Wii U players

Feb 18 // Jordan Devore    @DtoidJordan

Full online challenge mode coming for free as a standalone

The team behind Rayman Legends has put together a video which addresses Wii U players who felt burned after the game was delayed following the announcement that PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 ports were in production. "You may have heard an announcement about a demo, but in fact what we're going to do is release the full online challenge mode of the game exclusively to the Wii U fans," explains senior game manager Michael Micholic.

Accessible from the main hub in Legends, new challenges are generated daily and weekly. The challenges take place in five different settings and the overarching mode that ties them together will be released through the eShop, for free, around the beginning of April. Additionally, creative director Michel Ancel says that characters, bosses, and levels are being added to the full game.

A nice gesture, but is this going to change anything? Who knows. I would like to remind that, despite the unfortunate decision Ubisoft made in delaying the Wii U version of Rayman Legends in the first place, the company doesn't owe us anything. Even if this freebie isn't a complete make-good, it's more than I ever expected to see from the studio once this whole mess got started.

[Thanks, Bo]
