Rayman Legends Vita Receiving Missing Content For Free

"While the Wii U version of Rayman Legends appeared to be the only one with all of the content available at the moment, the Vita one will soon join it as the best version of the game – at least if you’re able to go online and patch it." (PS Vita, Rayman Legends)

Good news, but why on earth were they taken out in the first place? Im sure some sales were lost because of that

"Due to a longer development time than expected, we couldn’t initially include the Invasion Mode – essentially, a second take on existing Rayman Legends maps -- in the Vita version of the game."

They had 2 options, delay the Vita version or do what they did. IMO they took the right choice because if they delayed the game it would have hurt the sales a lot more.

Oh yes they did! I've had the chance to play both the Wii U version at home, and Vita at work and I must say that I'm more than pleased with my purchases. Honestly, I wouldn't have had any other way... Though the Vita version doesn't quite hold up to the Wii U version it's still up there and now with the missing content made available for FREE, it's definitely a step closer to its big brother on the Wii U. I've spent some time comparing the two and honestly The Vita version is just as good despite missing some very minor visual details, lowered resolution, and not quite holding up to a solid 60fps. If I had to choose one it would be the Wii U version right now but after this patch it really won't matter because the game will be complete, love both versions!

Game includes 40 origins maps, so not sure why people are upset.

Your basically getting Legends + Origins for one price.

Well as long as we get the content for free it doesn't matter to me.

awesome!

this was the version i wanted to get but the idea of missing out on 28 levels was turning me away.

now my worries are gone :D

Since I bought the hard copy, Does this mean that my Ps Vita memory card going to take a really big hit? I would imagine this will be delivered in the form of DLCs?

It will be in a patch. Yeah it will be at least 1gb I would guess.

I think it uses existing assets from the game, just some code with how the levels is different. I'm not familiar with the details of the mode though as I haven't cracked open the game yet. It probably won't be too big, unless it comes along with a big patch.

So I guess this makes the vita version the best version...again. I don't mean the other versions are inferior but to have the exact same game as the console versions(touch features same as Wii u) , and to play on the go/short 10 min sessions makes it the version to own.

So it is $20 less and will have everything plus some bonus stuff for Vita, I'm sold! Though it still would have been cool to use the GamePad for it on the Wii U. But there are plenty of other games coming out for Wii U that I want to get.

Awesome, I was literally just about to go out and buy the Wii U version right now but I read this. Looks like I can get the Vita one still like I had originally planned.

I love Rayman of VITA than Rayman of other consoles.
It's very comfortable.
PersonMan  +   886d ago
This is great! The Invasion levels are my favorite!
tubers  +   885d ago
This is really a great news!

So much better than Ubi keeping hush hush and giving a different excuse like "Well, it's cheaper."

Well they should give it for free, it was kinda supposed to be there in the first place.
