Wii U owners get Rayman online free and early.

As an apology to Wii U owners upset with the recent Rayman Legends delay, Ubisoft will release the game’s full online challenge mode as a Wii U eShop-exclusive free download in early April.

The online mode features new challenges generated daily and weekly, each with their own leaderboards, and five different settings, each with their own unique styles of gameplay.

Watch the announcement video here.

Rayman Legends is due for Wii U, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 in September.

        Does what? 30 uses, i dont understand, or i dont want to understand. Ahh its not a demo, nice

          Yeah, Nintendo’s limit on how many times one can activate a demo is silly.

      You could get nothing.

      I mean Wii U already gets exclusive content with Murfy anyway (personally wouldn’t appeal to me, but whatever).

      They don’t really owe anyone anything. If people bought the game, and then were locked out and had to wait. Then sure, but the game was delayed. No one bought it yet, so… be happy there’s something more aside from what’s already there.

      Stinks for Wii U users, but you’re not really entitled to anything for this.

    More “apology” than needed. The only mistake Ubisoft made was pretending this was a Wii U exclusive in the first place.

    Moving it to a simultaneous release in September was the right thing to do. They just made a mistake -before- that by striking a shady deal with Nintendo in the first place.

    It was an offence to fans of Rayman Origins and a limit to how well Legends could do. Plus, having played the shoehorned Wii U gimmicks in that demo, the game is really better off without them. It’s great when it doesn’t feel like an iOS application and feels more like Rayman Origins.

    I’m sure the minority of Rayman fans who intend to get the game on Wii U are a bit upset to have to wait a little longer, of course, but I still think this is the right thing for Ubisoft to do. Fixing a past mistake.

    How is it now Nintendolanders care about Rayman? This series is known on the Playstation for the most part and before that the Atari Jaguar. From what I remember Nintendolanders turned their noses up at Rayman games. Boy have times changed.
