A demo for Rayman Legends Definitive Edition went up for a brief time on the European Switch eShop a few days ago. Ubisoft eventually pulled it, but you have to wonder how it went up in the first place.

A representative told Eurogamer that the demo “was an early version of the game, which doesn’t include the latest Switch developments and not a representation of the final product”. Further added is that the demo “was an error”.

The full statement reads:

“We’re aware that Rayman Legends Definitive Edition went live for a short time on the Nintendo eShop. This was an early version of the game, which doesn’t include the latest Switch developments and not a representation of the final product – this was an error which is why it has been taken down. As mentioned in yesterday’s launch announcement, a free demo will be launched this summer ahead of the game’s launch on September 12th.”

The early version of the Rayman Legends Definitive Edition demo had some issues when playing docked. When it returns, it should run much more smoothly.

The new European eShop listing had Rayman Legends Definitive Edition’s release date down for September 12. Today, Ubisoft officially the news. Rayman Legends Definitive Edition will be out in both North America and Europe on September 12.

Rayman Legends Definitive Edition will allow four players to play together over a wireless local multiplayer connection. When playing undocked, you can use the touchscreen to move platforms, cut ropes, take out enemies, and more. The soccer-inspired minigame Kung Foot has also been updated.

With the Rayman Legends Switch demo coming out yesterday (and then being promptly removed), we’re able to see how the game stacks up to the original Wii U title. Unsurprisingly, the two are pretty much identical from a visual standpoint. Interestingly though, at least one enemy type has been changed. Get a look at the full comparison below.

Yesterday, a demo for Rayman Legends Definitive Edition was found on the European Switch eShop. It’s quite meaty, offering a few levels and some Kung Foot action.

A few hours later, the Rayman Legends Definitive Edition demo is missing in action. It has simply been removed without any explanation. It was located on the game’s new page, located in the “Coming Soon” section of the eShop, but the demo option is no longer available.

If we had to guess, the demo will return at some point later. It may have just gone up too early. There have also been some questions about performance in docked mode, so Ubisoft could be looking to clear those issues up before going live officially.

The first footage of Rayman Legends Definitive Edition on Switch is in with the game’s just-released demo on the European Switch eShop. View the gameplay below.

A demo for Rayman Legends Definitive Edition has unexpectedly been published on the European Switch eShop. It’s available for download right now, assuming you have 707MB of free space. You can download the demo in any region so long as you have a European Nintendo account.

Also worth mentioning, the European eShop indicates that Rayman Legends Definitive Edition is slated for September 12. Some of these listings have been occasionally inaccurate, but retailers have also been pointing to the same date.

We’ve been wondering how amiibo will function in Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. Thanks to the game’s official Twitter account, we’ve got an answer.

Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, and Peach amiibo are supported. When you scan amiibo for any of these characters, you’ll unlock weapons in the game.

Here’s the official word straight from the Rabbids Twitter account:

Ubisoft delivered its latest financial results today. Following that, the regular investors call was held with CEO Yves Guillemot.

Yves shared an interesting tease during the call. We know that Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is slated for next month, but the publisher will also be announcing new Switch games “quite soon,” according to Yves. Nothing else was shared beyond that.

Ubisoft released Just Dance 2017 for Switch’s launch in March. The company is also preparing the previously-mentioned Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, Starlink: Battle for Atlas, Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition, Monopoly, Just Dance 2018, and (supposedly) Steep.
