The premier trailer for the sequel to Rayman Origins has been leaked. Confirmed Wii U release and exclusive features
OMG OMG OMG!
OMG! Looks like a win for the NIN!!!
I laughed my ass off at the guy from 1:05-1:10 in the trailer. 1:05: "Oh wow! You get to use touch screen controls!" 1:10: "...And I don't. *sniffs*"
The game looks awesome. Loved Origins. The figures bit was kinda lame though. Do we have to buy those? I'll play the game as is.
Looks like an XBLA, PSN game. Probably a shameful $60 release. The controller is a complete gimmick. I'm not impressed by the Wii U so far.
Actually Rayman Origins was an excellent game. If this new one out does it, you can bet I'll be buying it on either PS3 or Wii U (or whatever I feel like lol). I love 2D side-scrolling platformers. That's why I also think NewSMBWii is better than Galaxy 1/2, for example.
Two observations: 1. There is magic in those graphics. Wow. 2. The WiiU controller is HUGE. Wow. 12
Anybody else noticed at the end of the trailer, they hinted at Assassin's Creed also making its appearance on the Wii-U with the Ezio Statue? Lol
I was thinking that's a hint towards Ezio making a cameo in the next game, like how Ryu was supposed to make a cameo in Megaman Universe before it got cancelled.
WiiU's AMD HD4000 series Gpu at work! The new controller / scanner is Way cool! I wonder what Magical surprises Zelda, Mario, Metroid WiiU will hold?
Wii U version is the best version
For what useless touch screen capability ohh lookie i can use my finger to move this platform... Or the fact they can now make you buy 1 seperate figurine that probably cost 20$ instead of a 5$ dlc pack for 4 chars. Next gen:Now introducing buy the main character figurine for your game only 20$ extra you place him on the screen and you unlock part of the game you already paid for, its becoming a joke dlc is becoming worse and worse and now they are making new forms of it. Just waiting for pregame dlc.
do you know what exactly the exclusive content is? even if it didnt add much to the game, extra features never hurt. besides, it looks like those figures unlock some kind of extra level or something?
"For what useless touch screen capability" So does that make Vita's touchscreen useless too? Afterall, you have to use that to throw grenades in Resistance and to swing on vines in Uncharted. Works both ways! Don't be like Akuma, majiebeast. *on topic* The game looks fantastic. If it is anything like Origins, i will be buying this day 1 on WiiU.
Extra features are always great. The PS3 version of Portal 2 is better than the xbox because it has an extra feature. ANd the PC version is the best because it will have a level editor.
Does the PSV Resistance game require you to buy separate figurines in addition to the game? I for one am an old fogy. I don't want motion controls, touch screens, social gaming and all else tacked onto what was once a simple platform title.
@Godmars I don't disagree in regards to the figures. They look to be more for younger gamers. I myself don't want that junk piling up in my home. If i had kids, sure i'd buy a few for them, but i won't be buying them for myself. The reason i mentioned Vita was nothing to do with these figures. I said it because he labelled the touchscreen as useless. This site seems to think something is useless when Nintendo or Microsoft do something but the moment Sony does it, it is useful. It's hypocritical. That was my point. Personally i don't find the touchscreens useless on any of them. They both still have physical buttons. The touchscreens were always going to gimmicky for both, but they are gimmicks that actually enchance the gameplay rather than hinder it.
Funny, thought I just called most modern gaming gimmicks useless regardless of brand. Its sad that we've become so polarized that you can't express an opinion without it being absently tied to something, which then gives lame excuse to dismiss it. Mind you I'm dismissing the WiiU, the PSV for that matter, for their gimmickry, but then I'm more than kind of frustrated that its taken five years into "Next Gen" for some company to justify a "simple" platformer as main disc-based title. That "Next-Next Gen" crap is getting piled on because something that's out on the PS3/360 is going on the WiiU, and what's being added could easily be put on the other systems. Gaming - arguing about it anyway - is just getting more and more stupid. Contrived.
Your so boring.... people call this stuff gimmicky but if we all had access to all the features regardless of our platform we'd (guaranteed) love them! Also anyone think we could do something similar to what they did with the figurines using kinect and PSeye???
hahaha a butthurt deadbox fan. stop posing son., you are as casual as those wii gamers. a real hardcore gamer is about ps3 and PC. not deadbox. even wii has better exclusives than your deadbox
Its probably a special edition like many games do like CoD gives out weird crap, here you'll probably get a PVC and instead of entering a code you just scan it, it's kinda a neat idea if you think about it, it makes ppl wanna pre-order and get physical + in-game content.
Really? You've played all versions of the game?
The Wii U version has an extra feature so it will make it the best version.
The funny part is even though it's made clear that Ubi is making this the best version people are still claiming false. "we don't want all these fun additions!!! boooooo!"
Hell, now I want Wii U even more! I just want to know now if there's more than one usable Wii U controller on a console
One controller per console, you can only use WiiMote controllers as addition
Nintendo has stated it may support at least two. But I'm fairly sure that all of the early dev kits (which no doubt off which this was based) only supported one.
Youtube video was supposedly taken down......to view video click my alternate source on IGN.
Rayman Legends awesome! True game! I like.
Game looks great! Edit: WTF ezio in rayman legends...
Ok WTF is happening to me? I'm actually aiming to buy 2 Ubisoft games on launch? The world may actually end this year, lol.
I'm not saying I didn't like Origins but am I the only one who wants a sequel to Rayman 3. I want to see a full 3D Rayman game before this gen ends
I have actually wanted a sequel to that game as a kid I loved rayman..
I dont think itll happen. Rayman Origins, to me, feels like a reboot of the franchise, and a perfect one of that. So its only fitting they do Rayman Legends instead.
Well considering they were going to do Rayman 4 before they moudled the idea into Rayman Raving Rabbids....I think it could happen Rayman 2 and Rayman 3 were great platformers I don't see Origins as a reboot...it's a prequel hence the "Origin" name in the title
@MikeCosgrove Rayman Origins is actually a sequel to Rayman 3, not a prequel to the first game. It was initially going to be a prequel (as shown in the first trailer), but at some point in the game's development (most likely after it became a full retail game) the idea was discarded. http://raymanpc.com/wiki/en...
You will be able 2 use 2 remotes per console. This is an early launch game they probably won't implament that in this game. But overall 2 with the console.
No it's 1 control pad thing per console
That doesn't make sense. It will be two per console just wait till E3
Oh great another port shwing nothing that the wii u can do or that it is at least a more advanced console than their competitors lol This system will be full of old ports and exclusives like Mario that are regurgitated and in no way, shape or form push the wii u to any limits. I believe Nintendo will be doing this purposely because like many rumors have said this system will be on par or barely more powerful than the older generation systems and thats sad.
1st of all, you're no neutral gamer. 2nd of all, you, like many other fanboys, have pre-determined opinions for anything a certain company does. this video is compressed and is missing out on loads of graphical detail. that shouldn't even need to be stated. its a new game. not a port.. and you're blind if you can't tell how graphically enhanced this is compared to Origins. there's no way to know, at least right now, if its going to look better on wii u or the same. but it will most likely look better on wii u
from what you see in the leaked video, we have the confirmation of the previous rumors about a single screenpad per console http://uk.wii.ign.com/artic... and that to receive the video signal on the screenpad it must be wired. simple and clear.
Not confirmed until Nintendo does it at E3
It's so obvious. Or you believe that the signal video can be streamed via wi-fi while the sensor bar receive other two or more signals and the cpu with the gpu process graphics and physics data? Wow if it so the wiiu has a stratosferic hardware much more powerfull than my PC just bought three months ago.
It is wired because they are working with devkits. Next to that it's obviously to keep the controller alive instead of using a battery. This video confirms NOTHING on that part. "while the sensor bar receive other two or more signals" What sensor bar? If you are refering to the wii-motes; LOL the sesor bars don't receive any data. They emit infrared. It's the Wii-mote that transfers data to the Wii/Wii u. "Wow if it so the wiiu has a stratosferic hardware much more powerfull than my PC" I don't even think you would understand how all of that works to begin with.
It'd make sense for it to be wired. Unless they have some sort of super battery powering the display it'd likely only last a few hours without one. As long as the tablet is optional it doesn't really matter, the game looked awesome.
Oh....my...god. This looks like it could be my GOTY 2012/2013!!!
In response to chaos...... First of all just because someone doesn't go by whatever information a company brain washes them with and actually looks at the history of the company (ala the wii and its crappy ports and regurgitated ips and weak tech) doesn't make them a fanboy. I have a perception of Nintendo not because of owning a Ps3 or Xbox, but because of what they did last gen. with the wii and ds and 3ds so i know what route most likely they will be going contrary to what they may tell you. You my friend are what i cal a hopeful fanboy, but like with the Wii you might be disappointed and the innovation you thought the system to be might not realize themselves. I for one want a new ip frm Nintendo shown that shows the capabilities of the Wii u and i want them to prove to me that it is more powerful and capable than the ps3 and xbox because if its not and i can play the same games on the cheaper system (if they are cheaper) then Nintendo will not be getting my money. As i stated games like Rayman, Mario, etc... which are cartoony are not taxing on any console and can be done on any including the original wii so it is not bringing nothing new to the table. Im sorry but i wont buy a Nintendo for a cute looking Mario game or Rayman game. I want to see new things and i want to see if the hardware is a step up from what we have now. Some people are satisfied with HD remakes, well im not. By the way if Nintendo does show me that potential of power and new ip,s and taking their old exclusives to a new level im in and will be buying a Wii u so it is no fanboyism just being a realist.
So that's as far back as your history goes?HA! You guys really make me laugh. If you are gonna go off there history why only go back one gen. Why not go to GameCube, 64, snes??????
Nintendo went with the weaker hardware once. The Wii was the only time they went weaker. Surely your perception told you to stay away from Sony this gen because the PS1 was weaker than the N64 and the PS2 was weaker than the Gamecube and Xbox. There is nobody brainwashed here by Nintendo. I buy Nintendo hardware to play Mario, Zelda, Mario Kart, Metroid, Donkey Kong etc. I buy Sony Hardware to play God Of War, Littlebigplanet, Uncharted, Killzone etc. The whole industry is suffering from sequels. In short, you buy Consoles based on their exclusives. This New I.P. rubbish is just an excuse to trash Nintendo. Sony releases multiple sequels, Microsoft does, the publishers do. These companies are businesses. They are looking to make money whilst providing quality entertainment. Mario fills both of those criterias. They have for the last 25 years. I'm not against New IPs, but I think its rubbish to trash well reviewed and established franchises just because you want something different. It's simple. Don't like them, don't buy them. You're in the minority. "like with the Wii you might be disappointed and the innovation you thought the system to be might not realize themselves." "By the way if Nintendo does show me that potential of power and new ip,s and taking their old exclusives to a new level" Statements like that do not make you appear neutral. The Wii did innovate. Kinect and Move releasing are due to the Wii's success with motion controls. As for being disappointed, i was and still am not disappointed in my Wii. Sure i play my PS3/360 more, but Nintendo's exclusives are still fantastic on the Wii. You state that you want them to take their old exclusive's to a new level, well they already did with Mario Galaxy and then they did so with Mario on 3DS. Not many people doubt Nintendo for game design so i'm kinda suprised to see someone doubting them in regards to their exclusives.
Because you don't need too. By the way im 33 so my gaming history goes way beyond that and probably before your gaming history. \ In response to 2EHO and the dissenters.... "HA!" what they have been doing recently is a good indication of where they are headed not what they did 10 years ago. Your logic is really flawed and makes no sense to me at all. By the way if their policy this gen to go with cheap weak hardware made them the tons of money the wii and ds have made for them what really makes you think they will change their strategy plz ppl use common sense. By the way once again regurgitating old ips into 20 diff itineraries for me isnt bringing anything to a new level for me.
We'll you were just acting like this was an official video Nintendo released. Ubisoft has confirmed it was a test video for dev teams to get their juices flowing on ideas and what can be done in a game. It doesn't reflect anything that will be in the final game. So to goo off like this is the game that's the end all of what the wiiu can do I thought was a little much. We all have to wait until E3.
Top article in pc section why?? I've stopped frequenting n4g just because% of the articles in the pc section aren't really related to the pc...
the games looks just as awesome as origins, and the putting of characters in game through the touch screen looks fun. I wonder where my old HE-MAN figures are...?
I liked it a lot. Nintendo has good marketing.
I expected graphics to be better. Does not look like this would not run on PS3 or even 360 for that matter. Gameplay looks great and controller looks like a game changer. Nintendo continues to innovate
First few games are usually only a small jump. This is the beginning.
If it's full 1080p 60 fps with no hiccups, i.e. when all the enemies were on-screen then I think it would be a comfortable "yes" in regards to not being able to run on current gen consoles. But we don't even know any of that stuff yet so your guess is as good as mine.
Uhhhhh it's a sidescroller, dunno if you noticed or not. Is someone afraid it will be more powerful?
looks pretty Neat
Sooo.... does one person just raise platforms while another controls running, jumping, etc? Because having to remove your hands from the buttons to swipe at the screen like that and be able to perform the basic jumps/moves, and not drop the $100+ controller looks like it will make controlling your character tedious.
It appeared to be an girlfriend mode. Girlfriend changes the environment while the boys play.
You don't need any type of touchscreen to enjoy origins and i'm guessing legends for that matter. I've played the game on PS3/ PSV / PC. All fun.
I really hope it's not an exclusive, I loved the first one but have no plans on buying a WiiU.
Considering the first one wasn't exclusive to a platform, just made use of certain features, this won't be. I'll likely buy a console version and Vita version, like Origins.
Why buy the Vita version if you already had any of one of the console versions? There's no multiplayer for any of the portable iterations, so it seems pretty pointless to me.
I haven't touched multiplayer on it. I only play single player. So, having an additional version for portable play is nice. Plus, I'd happily support this sort of game.
To each their own. I can never understand buying the same game twice over though.
