Rayman Legends Wii U dominance despite multiplatform

Rayman Legends is considered to be one of the big hopes on Wii U this year, despite the fact that the game has gone from being a Nintendo exclusive, to a multiplatform release on PS3 and Xbox 360 as well. Ubisoft are still adamant though that the Wii U version will perform well, recently going as far to say that Rayman Legends will become a ‘system seller’.

As you can imagine, there is still a lot of disappointment in the air over Ubisoft’s decision to release the game on other platforms. The overall factor though is that Rayman Legends is still going to be a fantastic game to pick up, and from what we have seen from the Wii U demo, the visuals are absolutely stunning.

It is definitely the kind of game that the Nintendo needs to repeat if the system is going hold its own once the inevitable barrage happens as Sony and Microsoft release their respective next-gen efforts as well. Ubisoft’s Xavier Poix has been speaking in detail about Rayman Legends and has brought up two interesting points to GamesIndustry.Biz.

Firstly, he has said that the Wii U hardware is of a higher standard than Xbox 360 or PS3 – not the first time that we have heard advantages of the Wii U hardware over current-gen consoles. More importantly though, he also believes that Rayman Legends will turn out to be a system seller for Wii U hardware, adding that Nintendo just need to release more games of the same calibre to stay healthy.

While this is encouraging news for Wii U owners, we haven’t seen what the game looks like on PS3 and Xbox 360 yet. Will it be the same quality, or will the Wii U version remain the best build to pick up? Another factor that consumers will be thinking of is – why pick up the Wii U version if Rayman Legends is transferrable over to the Sony PS4 and Xbox 720?

If Rayman Legends is on your shopping list this year, let us know if you think the game has the power to improve Wii U hardware sales.
