After being an early proponent of the Wii U, Ubisoft had seemingly lost the support of the console's fans after delaying the highly anticipated Rayman Legends until September. Despite the game being done, Ubisoft wanted to release the game across all platforms simultaneously as it now works on getting the game up and running on the PS3 and Xbox 360. To make up for it, Ubisoft said it would release a new demo, but Wii U gamers are actually getting much more.
Ubisoft announced via Facebook that Wii U gamers will get the entirety of Rayman Legends' online challenge mode for free starting in April. As the name suggests, this mode will have players competing across various levels in various challenges to see who can reach the top of the leaderboards.
In further good news, the development team will be using the extra time to add new characters and features into all versions of the game. It's good to know that the developers aren't just using the delay to focus on the extra SKUs. Adding new content is a major win for everybody.
There's no specific date mentioned for the release of the Rayman Legends challenge mode, but you can expect to see it at the beginning of April. The full game will be released sometime in September.[h/t: GoNintendo]
