NYCC '12: Rayman and Murphy are two peas in a Wii U pod | Pixelitis Preview

"At this year’s E3, I watched along with everyone else when Rayman Legends wowed with its gameplay. It looked smooth and beautiful like its predecessor, with a nice twist to its gameplay thanks to the Wii U Gamepad. Fast forward to this past weekend in New York City and I finally got my itching hands on the follow up to Rayman Origins.

Afforded the chance to test out both the classic platforming gameplay as Rayman using the Wii U’s (Xbox 360 knockoff) Pro controller and the swipe-mania that the GamePad entails when using the green fairy-esque Murphy, I finally got to validate my preorder of a Wii U.

Let me start off by saying that anyone familiar with Rayman Origins’ controls will feel right at home with Rayman Legends. Rayman punches, kicks, jumps and sprints across some remarkably beautiful 2D environments."

- Patrick Kulikowski (Rayman Legends, Wii U)
