Reaction: The Rayman Legends Delay Is a Low Blow, But The Apocalypse Isn't Here

Let's get one key point out of the way, just so we've said it early. The delay of Rayman Legends feels, to many current and prospective Wii U owners, like a cynical cash-grab of a business move. There are good old "anonymous sources", apparently developers on the game, stating that it's practically finished — it was arriving in a matter of weeks — but that word from on high came late to say that it was going multi-platform and hitting all systems at the same time. In fact, speaking to Digital Spy, Ubisoft public relations specialist Sarah Irvin confirmed that very thing.

Nintendo Life reacts to the Rayman Legends delay, but also considers the focus on "exclusivity" and the potential realities for upcoming titles such as The Wonderful 101 and LEGO City: Undercover. Also up for debate is the extent of the real impact - beyond initial online outrage - of the Rayman Legends news.

Either release the game next month or lose at least 250,000 sales,remember sonic racing sold best on wiiu accounting for 260,000 copies of the 960,000 sold ?

And this game has so much more hype than Sonic. I honestly think over half the people that own Wii Us would have bought this. It's the first game that people were actually looking forward to.

Basically Ubisoft did this with wii pretend to support the system then delay games until rival consoles hit ??? Ubi are paid by microsoft i think.

I was going to get this game when it came out this month, but now that it won't be out until September I'll be skipping it. There are other games I'm already planning on buying around that time.

To be frank I was excited for this game and I was pretty sure it was going to go multiplat anyway; all that I honestly don't mind. Delaying it like this is a dick move. My enthusiasm has been otherwise shot. I may still get the game, but my priorities have surely been altered at this point. There are other, more exciting games I'm looking forward to (also on multiple platforms) with less shady business practices surrounding them. Seriously, screw Ubisoft.
