Rayman Legends is a Real Thing
Wii U exclusive functionality shown off in leaked trailer
[UPDATE] Ubisoft has now acknowledged that Rayman Legends is indeed in development by Michel Ancel and his development team in Ubisoft's Montpellier studio.
"An internal video showing images of Rayman Origins' sequel has leaked over the Internet. This video was intended as a purely internal demonstrative video, and in NO way represents the final game, the final console or their features. This video was destined for internal production teams who often create game prototypes with work in progress development kits. Ubisoft confirms the development of Rayman Legends handled by Michel Ancel and his team in Montpellier."
The original story, which contains the leaked video, is below:
It didn’t take long for another big game announcement to get leaked to the gaming public. Shortly after news started to spread that Ubisoft had registered a domain for Rayman Legends, a trailer for the game was leaked – confirming that this is indeed a real thing and that the Wii U version will have some interesting added functionality.
The trailer is embedded above and shows off some impressive game footage before displaying the features custom to Nintendo’s next console. In addition to using the tablet-esque controller to input some touch commands, the game will take advantage of the Wii U’s near field communication (NFC) technology. The result mirrors Skylanders, wherein a Raving Rabbid figurine was transported into the game.
And is that an Ezio Auditore da Firenze figure we see being eyeballed next? Yes, yes it is.
