Though many gamers are still upset about the major delay Rayman Legends received in the process of going multiplatform, the game’s developers are doing their best to assure the public that the additional months won’t be going to waste. In a recent interview, Ubisoft game manager Michael Micholic dropped the following tidbit:
“Trust me, the things we are adding aren’t minor. We’re not talking about adding some polish here and there, but 30 new levels and several new bosses.”
An additional bonus is in the works exclusively for Wii U owners, possibly an attempt to make up for the game no longer being an exclusive. Titled the Online Challenges Mode, the free download will include several levels with new challenges being added on a weekly and daily basis, complete with leaderboards. It will also contain a level called Murfy’s Dungeon completely exclusive to the Wii U, most likely as the touch-heavy gameplay that character will provide using the system’s GamePad isn’t currently possible on Sony and Microsoft’s platforms.
While there will no doubt continue to be plenty of online opinions upset about the long wait ahead (the game was originally due for a Wii U release in February), both of these recent reveals personally make the wait a bit more tolerable for me.
Legends has been one of my most anticipated games for a while after playing both the demo and the stellar previous game Rayman Origins, and the fact that there’s going to be that many new levels packed on top of what I assume would have been a game containing a similar amount of time to the first is very exciting. It sounds like when the game finally does arrive, players can expect a pretty lengthy journey.
