Now Rayman Legend backtracks on Wii U exclusivity, gets new release date

Ubisoft has confirmed that former Wii U exclusive Rayman Legends is now also to be released on Xbox 360 and PS3.

The game was once scheduled as a launch title for Nintendo’s machine, and had been expected to arrive some time this quarter.

All three SKUs – Wii U, PS3 and Xbox 360 – will now be released in early September.

It’s the second game to ditch its Wii U shackles following confirmation of a similar move from Tecmo Koei’s Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge earlier today.

We heard from many Xbox and PlayStation owners and Rayman fans who told us they really wanted to play Rayman Legends on their current system,” Ubisoft’s EMEA chief marketing and sales officer Geoffroy Sardin stated.

”We decided to give the fans what they wanted while at the same time broadening the audience exposed to this innovative and memorable game.”
