Rayman Legends Delay Has Actually Resulted In A Better Game
There was a huge uproar a few months back when Ubisoft announced that Rayman Legends would no longer be a Wii U exclusive, getting Xbox 360 PS3 versions later in the year. The day after that there was an even bigger uproar when Ubisoft announced that the Wii U version would be delayed to September as well, despite claims from employees that suggested the title was ready and waiting to be shipped.
However, the delay might have been the best thing that has ever happened to Rayman Legends. According to Senior game manager Michael Micholic, not only has the game benefitted from additional polish time, but Ubisoft has actually created an additional 30 levels that will now be included in the title, including all new boss missions.

“Trust me, the things we are adding aren’t minor,” he explained. “We’re not talking about adding some polish here and there, but 30 new levels and several new bosses.”
Micholic also explained that the decision to delay the title was very hard, especially for the developers. However the additional time on the title has been extremely beneficial apparently, and gamers will certainly appreciate the additional content.
“Of course, there are more important issues and problems in the world but we worked really hard to make something and were so involved, it was difficult for us and the fans.”
Wii U owners can look forward to playing some of the game’s online challenge modes next month while everyone else can expect Rayman Legends to launch on the Wii U, PS3 and Xbox 360 in late September.
