Ubisoft to release full Rayman Legends online challenge mode

In a video posted to the official Rayman Facebook page, Rayman Legends creative director Michel Ancel and senior game manager Michael Micholic showed appreciation for fans' support resulting from Ubisoft's decision to push the game back on Wii U. Micholic said that it "definitely hurt us to see you guys so upset about the delay."

Ubisoft previously said that it would be making an exclusive Legends demo available to Wii U owners. This won't actually be happening. Instead, Ancel and Micholic confirmed that the company will release Rayman Legends' full online challenge mode exclusively on Nintendo's console, via the eShop.

Here's the rundown of the download:

- Online challenge mode will be accessible through the main hub
- New challenges daily and weekly, each with their own leaderboards
- Challenges in 5 different settings with unique gameplay styles
- Deadly pit, land of the dead, infernal tower, dojo, dungeon
- Dungeon challenge created exclusively for Wii U
- All challenges can be played alone or up to 5 players
- Invite friends, filter the competition
- Each result recorded on the leaderboard and as a ghost
- History system saves all performances, trophies earned

The Rayman Legends online challenge mode will be hitting the Wii U eShop in early April as a free download. Micholic said it will be "playable for countless hours".

I would think this would destroy the actual game but oh well

I think this is great news as well, but I too wander if it will halter sales of the game on the Wii U as many may be content with free content and put money elsewhere, but hopefully it will bring in new people to the franchise.

Nintendomination posted an analysis of the trailer about it displaying a 360 button on-screen. So I guess its not exclusive as well?

I'm actually quite humbled by the developers' reaction. They had to take a lot of crap for a decision that wasn't theirs in the slightest. This is probably the best result we can have without actually changes the release date back (something pretty unheard of, I guess). And at least they're adding even more content in the coming months...

@ehead: The online component will be in the 360/PS3 retail versions. There is at least one unique stage for the Wii U version, though, and they won't be getting it early.
