Today, we have some good news for X-Box 360 and PS3 fans and bad news for Wii U fans. Firstly, the good news. Rayman Legends, sequel to Rayman Origins, will be arriving on the PS3 and the X-Box 360 as the Wii U. So, more people will be able to enjoy the game. Awesome right?
Unfortunately, this news also comes with a 6+ month delay for Wii U owners. Originally scheduled to release in late February, Wii U owners will now have to wait till September when the game will release on all platforms.
As a Nintendo fan, I don’t mind owners of other consoles being able to play Rayman Legends, but it seems the game is being delayed solely to make the game release simultaneously across the consoles. This might have something to do with Microsoft and Sony’s policies on the matter. For example, Sony does not allow late ports unless they feature some sort of added content, and this may have something to do with the delay for Wii U owners. Delaying a game for so long when it is so close to release date is rather vexing.
