Considering the game was no loner WIiU exclusive and the first was on PSV, I would not be surprised if this Rayman came to the PSV.
admiralvic  +   946d ago
I wouldn't say that, since the game was designed with the Wii U in mind. We already know that the PS3 / Xbox versions will play "differently", so who knows what other changes are required to get it working for the PS Vita.

Sadly I can't get the site to load to see where the rumor comes from, but I wouldn't be shocked if the rumor lead to a "companion" type app, which would allow the Vita to make up for the "lost" features.

Despite the media buzz surrounding this title, the director (at E3 last year) alluded to the game coming out on other platforms. I'm fairly confident that it was always planned for more than the WiiU, but Nintendo had some "interest" in keeping that knowledge under-wraps.

@ Sarshelyam

You do realize that your statement makes no sense right? Nintendo can try to "suppress" as much information as possible, but it's unlikely they can convince Ubisoft to tell us it was delayed twice, only to announce it as a multiplatform and delay the Wii U version again. Furthermore, no one really cares that it's going to other platforms, I mean if they want it on the PC / 3DS / Vita / PS4/ Next Box / etc, but people were always angry about the senseless delay. I just hope that the Vita version (if real) can retain enough of the original game to be an enjoyable and complete experience.

WOW people still do care about rayman, i thought it was a rubbish title.

I doubt that a Vita version would "lose" features from the Wii U version, considering that it has the same interface built in. What would stop it from playing the same way?
FluffyPloo  +   946d ago
The original on the vita didnt have multiplayer (online) support, hopefully its not the case this time.
deafdani  +   946d ago
If anything, a Vita version would be the closest to the Wii U version, if not identical. It has a touch screen after all.
skyrimer  +   946d ago
I think that maybe the Vita version would be a stand alone cross-buy title like xbox /ps3, however when used with the PS3 it would take advantage of WiiU tablet like features, that would be cool.
lilbroRx  +   946d ago
Indeed. Till this day, the delay has been the only thing that Nintendo fans were even remotely agitated about.

They "did not care in the slightest" that is was announced for other hardware. That's not how Nintendo fans think, but these sad, fanboyish excuses for gamers try their hardest to insist on there being some form of resentment over it being announced for the PS3/360 when there isn't.

@admiralvic and lilbroRx

Pretty much my sentiments exactly. I don't care who gets to play a game on other consoles, it's a good thing. However, I do mind having a completed game that I intended (strictly past-tense) on buying yanked off the shelves at the last minute.

I don't play handhelds, but if it is coming to the Vita, I would think 3DS would be in the picture. Not that it matters to me.
admiralvic  +   946d ago
Hard to say, since the Vita version released MONTHS before the 3DS version.
Sanquine90  +   946d ago
Vita version was the best version. ! Console ones were ok... But the 3ds version for me was MEH
SilentNegotiator  +   946d ago
I haven't played the 3DS version myself, but my understanding is that it ran kind of poorly. Not that such a thing would keep them from gladly accepting money from the people buying it on 3DS, but if Legends takes more processing power, 3DS may not get the opportunity to play it.

lol hahahaaha smh
Chrono  +   946d ago
Wii U fans are probably really angry now.
paul1974  +   946d ago
not really we have the exclusive online multi player dropping on eshop tomorrow FREE:), sorry did i say Free! yes Free, plus we get exclusive levels and stuff not coming to any other version! so the wait is annoying but this will make up for it..
admiralvic  +   946d ago
Well... I believe the online stuff was originally intended to launch with the game, but they moved it ahead as a "good will" gesture. In either case, I pretty sure the service is will be discontinued as soon as the game releases. As far as the "exclusive stuff" you're talking about, that's mostly because of the differences between the consoles. It's not that you're getting exclusive content, it's that they CAN'T port the content, so they're trying to lead you to believe it's a perk, when it's not.
jcnba28  +   946d ago
Yeah we are so mad...we're just getting free exclusive online levels tomorrow through the eshop...yeah wii u owners are pissed...
Sanquine90  +   946d ago
Lol more love for my vita :) i preorded the wii u version . The delay sucked !....
o-Sunny-o  +   946d ago
I enjoyed Rayman Origins. I think it was called...anyways I would like this to come to Vita it just fits more for handheld IMO.
strigoi814  +   946d ago
It would be day one for me if it is true
majiebeast  +   946d ago
Version i would buy for sure OLED+cheaper+hopefully crossbuy for PS3 and Vita.

If this is true then its made my day!

Rayman Origins was the game i got with my vita on launch day and I absolutely loved it.

While if this isn't true ill probably still pick it up for PS3 but i like my 2D platformers on handhelds.
paul1974  +   946d ago
in response to admiralvic, the game designer whom was mad at the delay for wiiu confirmed exclusive levels for wiiu! so not making that one up! plus maybe the multi player will come out on release but its not to have it exclusive for 5 months for Free.
Williamson  +   946d ago
I really hope this is true! I picked up a new copy of rayman origins for $9 for the vita and I can barely put it down. I'd even say the vita version is the best one.
Tito08  +   946d ago
Judging by the good reviews & sales Rayman Origins got on the Vita, it is very likely it will get Legends as well, & the Vita version outsold the 3DS version even with 3DS's huge instal base. I think Vita version of Origins is the best version out there, & I only played the PS3 version.
lilbroRx  +   946d ago
Seems that the entire cashing point of this news and the people commenting is the " its no longer Wii U exclusive" aspect. Its like they care very little, if at all, about the actual game itself aside from the potential detriment they hope they can use as fodder for throwing at the Wii U.

This is just sickeningly sad.

It like how people who bash EA for all of the crooked/terrible decisions and things they done, but rush to their defense and praise them when they announce a game being denied access on a Nintendo platform, then insist on their having to be some kind of resentment from Nintendo fans when there is none. Because Nintendo fans have to be uptight fanatics like them who get angry at the sort of thing in the mind of fanboys.

You know that in the real world not everyone hates WiiU right? I got Rayman Origins on my Vita and absolutely loved it, and I can barely wait for a Vita version. Back when WiiU released the only game I cared for was Rayman Legends, now I can't name a single game that would make me purchase it, and since I have a PS3, I will just buy it for PS3 instead or hopefully for the Vita and save me lots of money.

I can't wait to be interested in the WiiU, that'll mean that several awesome games have been released for it, but right now it's not the case, and sorry but it's only Nintendo to blame for their lackluster support.

Yes, I'm well away of that. Most people seem to love it. I'm not talking about most people or everyone, though.

I'm talking about gaming journalist and HD Twin fanboys.

Hope so ... Origins was beautiful on vita
boybato  +   946d ago
thats what a native res game can do.
extermin8or  +   940d ago
Just to say having played the demo of rayman legends on a shop on a wii u- and owning rayman origins on my ps vita (love the game) I really don't see what people are on about that the game had to be altered to be playable on the ps3/xbox- there were some exclusive levels and stuff that recquired the wii u gamepad that was shown at E3 last year- the designers even said it was likely it would come to other platforms in the future, ubisoft openly said this on twitter and facebook etc aswell-plus nothing stopping the vita and ps3 taking advantage of these same features... and the vita has a similar interface to the gamepad on wii u so I don't see why it would be altered hardly at all...
