Well this is an unexpected and welcome surprise. What was previously going to be available only on Wii U, Rayman Legends will be making its way to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in early September 2013, hopefully early enough to avoid being overshadowed by Grand Theft Auto V.
Developed by Ubisoft Montpellier, the same team behind the Wii U version, Rayman Legends features an advanced UbiArt engine for “multi-dimension gameplay elements”, improved lighting, and updated rendering to the game’s graphics.
Lucile Bousquet, Communications and Marketing Director at Ubisoft Canada, had this to say about the ports:
We heard from many Xbox & PlayStation owners and Rayman fans who told us they really wanted to play Rayman Legends on their current system. We decided to give the fans what they wanted while at the same time broadening the audience exposed to this innovative and memorable game.
So, after the Wii U version of Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge was announced for PS3 yesterday, and Rayman Legends today, maybe we’ll see Funky Barn getting a port tomorrow? We can only hope!
Will you be getting Rayman Legends in September? Let us know in the comments below.
