To counter the despair we all received when Ubisoft announced the Rayman Legends delay and renege of Wii U exclusivity, Wii U owners will be receiving more than just a simple demo for the game. This time, Wii U owners will be receiving an exclusive and free release of Rayman Legends online Challenge Mode in April.
Creative director of the game, Michel Ancel, joined the senior game designer Michael Micholic for a Facebook video giving us more news on the delayed game. Furthermore, because of all the support the team has received from fans of series and Wii U owners upset of the delay, Micholic, said this:
We just wanted to reach out and let you know how truly humbled we were by the outpouring of support from the community and fans about the announcement of the delay of Rayman Legends. It definitely hurt us to see you guys so upset by the delay.
Ancel also added that they now have the ability to add more content such as characters, levels, and bosses to the game because of the delay. At least that means they’re not simple holding out the release of the Wii U version until it has finished development for other systems.
Content in the Challenge Mode include daily as well as weekly challenges, multi-player functions, an online leaderboard, and ghosts which you can download and try to defeat in various challenges.
Anyway, you can watch the full Facebook video after the break.
