Rayman Legends is looking like one of the standout games of 2013, despite the fact that Ubisoft delayed to game on Wii U to make it multiplatform on PS3 and Xbox 360. This week, we have another indiction just how beautiful the game is looking, with the release of a new gameplay trailer that shows off some underwater levels for the first time.

Everyone loves a co-op platformer and Rayman Legends is arguably going to be challenging New Super Mario Bros on the Wii U as the best platforming game on the system. Up to four friends can take part in the frantic action, with even an additional player slot available as Murfy using the Wii U GamePad.

Failing that, the game is also coming to PS3 and Xbox 360 as well with co-op support, with Ubisoft now on course for an all platform release on August 30 in the UK and a few days after in the US – makes a change. Ubisoft has unveiled the ’20,000 lums under the sea’ trailer, giving you a look at some of the water levels in the game.

The artwork is simply breath-taking and you really have to sit back and admire how good the game really looks. We’re actually surprised that Ubisoft has not expanded into a Rayman cartoon series yet, as we have a feeling it would be a big hit with the younger audience.

The video also gives a detailed look into the new female character Barbara for the first time as well, so that will be good news for female Rayman fans wanting to play through the game as her. Don’t forget that you can already play a Rayman Legends demo now, exclusively on the Wii U version – it’s available from the eShop.

Watch the stunning footage above and let us know if you are going to have to fit Rayman Legends in as well, with your busy Fall 2013 gaming purchases.
