    So, Batman, Trine, and Rayman Legends. That should last me for a while.

    Could you add spoilers. Not everyone has 1080p, so it would be hard to view An alternative could be resizing the picture.
    Anyway, the game looks quite nice. I hope that the physics would be better than Origin's. I also thought that Wii U exclusivity was already confirmed, but never mind that.

    Globox from Origins vs. Globox in Legends.

    I resized it (even though the reason I kept the original image is so everyone can see it in its high-res glory).

    I think the exclusiveness for Wii U is just for a period of time until the Wii U has settled in, to which other consoles will get it later on. Whether that will be current-gen like the PS3 and 360, or next-gen, I dunno.

    This game looks beautiful.
    Hopefully getting this for my whole college apartment to play! (I just hope my dormmates don't totally destroy my WiiPad.)

    Making a beautiful followup to Origins and then locking it to a single console? That's cold, Ubisoft.

    Well they added some things (the touchscreen stuff) that would only be possible on the Wii U.


    And being an exclusive launch title might help it sell more. I'm sure it resonates well with Nintendo's audience (being a platformer), too.

    This will drive some wii-u sales for sure :D
    Its so great to see Rayman back in his element instead of another Rabbids game. Not that I didn't enjoy rabbids, but Rayman at his roots, is where its at.

    That's an awesome art style. Not hyper-realistic like so many games try to be but still feel like a lot of time and effort went into it.
    Also its nice to see ubisoft actually using the Rayman IP so effectively.

    I remember them mentioning something about a fifth character that could be controlled with the touchpad who could interact with the other players throughout the game (unless that was a different game). That doesn't seem to be a fundamental feature though; it sounded like you can play through the game without using it. (And even then, Smart Glass could probably manage it).

    Also, I just don't see that being the case. Not a whole lot of people bought Origins, and that game has been sold across the 360, PS3, Wii, 3DS, PS Vita, and PC. Releasing Legends for only one console (a console just launching this year, in fear) is just going to limit its audience more than anything else.

    Ubisoft could easily sell the game on both the Wii U (perhaps touting it as the superior version for the controller functionality) and other platforms. That way, they can nab money from early adopters and hold outs while more people get to experience their game. That's a win-win scenario right there.

    Every single video of the game shows things you have to do with the touch-screen. For a lot of levels, it's pretty much integral to the game (even in single-player) and wouldn't work on other platforms. And Smart Glass clearly couldn't manage it for two reasons, latency (it uses Wi-Fi) and lack of buttons.

    It's the launch game-effect. Obscure games such as this (that don't usually sell like crazy) tend to sell better because there just isn't much else to pick from. That combined with the fact that Nintendo's audience are fond of platformers makes it an understandable decision.


    For all we know, Nintendo could have paid them off to keep it a Wii U exclusive or they might be keeping it as a timed exclusive releasing it to the other platforms (albeit shaving off a bunch of levels because of the lack of a touchscreen).

    I didn't like the art style of the first game, it reminded me of icky flash games.
    This looks incredibly good and it looks even better seeing it in motion!

    I didn't like Origins physics either nor the repetitive nature of the music but if those issues are addressed in this title then, man this game would be fucking stellar because Origins was still an excellent game.

    Bear in mind that Legends is being designed for a console with more power then what the 360 and PS3 offer. I could see it being released later on the PC, if it is timed exclusive, because that is at least one platform where they could release it without having to modify the game's graphics since PC's drastically outperform consoles.
