Rayman Legends was previously scheduled to release exclusively for Wii U this month, but as it turns out the fans spoke out in protest. They wanted for Rayman Legends on the consoles they already own and that’s apparently resulting in a seven month delay as Ubisoft Montpellier port the game to PS3 and Xbox 360.

Tony Key, Senior Vice President of sales and marketing with Ubisoft, talks about their reasoning behing the move:

We heard from many Xbox 360 & Playstation 3 owners and Rayman fans who told us they really wanted to play Rayman Legends on their current system. We decided to give the fans what they wanted while at the same time broadening the audience exposed to this innovative and memorable game

Rayman Legends is considered one of the most anticipated platformers of 2013, a title Sony should have given to Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time to boost its anticipation. Like Sly Cooper 4, Rayman Legends will play much like any Rayman game in the series’ history, but with new characters in new worlds, innovative gameplay modes, and new music.

I look forward to yet another stellar looking Rayman game to grace my PS3. Here’s hoping Rayman’s creator Michael Ancel realizes he can use the Vita with Cross Controller functionality to port nearly all the Wii U features over to PlayStation.
