Rayman Legends was easily one of the best platformers of 2013 thanks to its tight controls and unmatchable charm. It has an interesting history to boot as it started out as a Wii U exclusive, was delayed so it could be ported to pretty much every other platform, and is now getting super HD ports on the Xbox One and PS4.
After initially being announced via a silly trailer starring Snoop Dogg, Rayman Legends for PS4 and Xbox One is now available today. The next-gen port of last year’s platformer doesn’t bring much in the way of visual improvements, but both versions take advantage of each platform’s unique abilities. For example, the PS4 version supports Remote Play on the PS Vita.
As for general gameplay enhancements, there’s not much. The team at Ubisoft does say that next gen consoles allowed them to remove loading times entirely from the game. While they weren’t really all that noticeable on the original version, they were still there. Now players can jump from level to level without having to wait a second.
Rayman Legends is now available on Xbox One and PS4 for the more affordable price of $39.99. It’s also available on PS3, Xbox 360, PlayStation Vita, PC and Wii U.
