Rayman Legends is going multiplatform. Ubisoft announced today that the upcoming platformer, a follow-up to Rayman Origins, will now release in early September and be available on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in addition to the already announced Wii U.
“We heard from many Xbox & PlayStation owners and Rayman fans who told us they really wanted to play Rayman Legends on their current system”, said Chief Marketing & Sales Officer Geoffroy Sardin via press release, “We decided to give the fans what they wanted while at the same time broadening the audience exposed to this innovative and memorable game.”
The game will be developed across all three platforms by Ubisoft Montpellier.
The announcement is a bit of a blow to the Wii U. Nintendo has already said their newly released console isn’t hitting their expectations, and the console is currently lacking titles to entice new buyers. While Rayman Legends being a Wii U exclusive came as a bit of a surprise, this announcement could be telling as to how much faith third parties have in the console.
Rayman Legends was originally scheduled to release on Feb. 26.
