    News of Rayman Origins sequel Rayman Legends being exclusive to Nintendo's upcoming console, the Wii U, came as a surprise to many. However, that many not be the case, according to Ubisoft senior game manager Michael Micholic.

    In his interview with Joystiq, Micholic said, ""Well we're not really saying it's a Wii U exclusive, although right now all we're showing is the Wii U [version]."

    He went on to say "We're looking at a lot of different launch options so we'll keep you guys updated as soon as we know for sure, but right now we're just talking about the Wii U."

    The game was demoed at E3 this year exclusively for the Wii U, showing some exclusive features with the Wii U's touchscreen, such as the ability to control a fifth party member in co-op.

    No official release date has been announced, but the game is slated for approximately this November.

    would seem daft for Ubi to keep it as an exclusive, my guess is it could be a timed exclusive

    What's typical, going multiplat? I don't see how that hurts honestly. It gathers more sales, pleases the Origins fanbase as a whole, and the Wii U still keeps some sort of exclusivity in terms of content.

    it's the same kind of practice that capcom do, they whored out resident evil 4 till it imploded, it was originally a gamecube exclusive and you know the rest.

    ...How is Rayman Legends whored out when it's not even released?

    RE4 is "whored out" because it got a port to the PS2 and a XBLA/PSN HD touch up. SOMEONE CALL THE PIMP BECAUSE THIS WHORE NEEDS TO FIND HER PLACE.

    Oh yeah, my bad. I guess it was kinda "whored out".

    But for Rayman Legends, how is this "whoring out"?

    How is this in any way, shape, or form a bad thing? Ubisoft gets more money and more people are given the opportunity to play the game; it's a win-win.

    I really doubt there'd be a Wii version.

    There was no reason to keep it a WiiU exclusive!
    I still don't understand why people are so mad about this!

    It's like @Gahars said, it's a win-win
    We will receive this game on PS3 and X360 and maybe on PSV and 3DS

    Translation: We'll wait to see how it sells on the Wii U before deciding on releasing it for other platforms.

    there is no bad thing in this, for ubisoft.

    its kinda a bad thing for our beloved nintendo though. exclusive titles are the sole reason to buy any one console. and 3rd party exclusives are especially interesting there

    Why would they go for a Wii version when the Wii U not only offers everything the Wii U does, but also because they're trying to give their new system exposure?
