Today, Ubisoft announced that its forthcoming title Rayman Legends, already announced for the Wii U, will also be released on the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3. Both versions of Rayman Legends are being developed by Ubisoft Montpellier, the same team behind the Nintendo Wii U game.
“We heard from many Xbox & Playstation owners and Rayman fans who told us they really wanted to play Rayman Legends on their current system”, says Geoffroy Sardin, EMEA Chief Marketing & Sales Officer. ”We decided to give the fans what they wanted while at the same time broadening the audience exposed to this innovative and memorable game.”
Rayman Legends, the fifth main title in the Rayman series and the direct sequel to 2011’s Rayman Origins, carries on the style of gameplay from Rayman Origins in which multiple players run, jump, punch, and kick their way through tricky levels while adding a multitude of clever and entertaining gaming modes, new characters, new environments and a new soundtrack. The game will be powered by the UbiArt engine that will allow it to include multi-dimension gameplay elements, an improved lighting system and updated game rendering.
All versions of Rayman Legends will hit shelves in early September 2013.
