Rayman Legends has lost its Wii U exclusivity. Ubisoft has confirmed that the game will be also be released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Fans will be able to grab Legends for either platform in September. Unfortunately, the Wii U version has now been delayed from February 26 to September as well. Ubisoft Montreal is working on all three releases of Rayman Legends.

Geoffroy Sardin, EMEA chief marketing & sales officer, commented:

“We heard from many Xbox & Playstation owners and Rayman fans who told us they really wanted to play Rayman Legends on their current system. We decided to give the fans what they wanted while at the same time broadening the audience exposed to this innovative and memorable game.”

Well, that's a big kick in the nuts for Wii U. Announcing this less than a month before the release date..

And it's probably delayed to bring it to other consoles .__.

I just lost all of my respect for Ubisoft.

It coming to PS360 stings, but the bigger problems here are that they delayed the Wii U version (which could have still come out on time) and that now it's going up against a bunch of better games which I'll be buying instead.

I don't think the game should've been a Wii U exclusive to start with, but delaying that version for even longer seems like a really dumb decision. It's not like Wii U owners really have much else to play before The Wonderful 101 and Pikmin 3

They should put some more extra content on the Wii U version if they have 6 months to mess with it.
