Sad news today for Wii U / Rayman fans—Rayman Legends has now been delayed to Quarter 1 of 2013 worldwide.  Legends has easily been one of the most anticipated games for the Wii U so this will be disappointing for a lot of Wii U early adopters.  I know pretty much all of us here at Pure Nintendo were planning on buying it at launch.  On the flip side, the extra development time will most likely be worth it and will lead to a more polished game overall.  Who knows, maybe the NFC tech we saw in that leaked Rayman Legends trailer will end up in the final version.

“Rayman Legends will launch worldwide in the first quarter of 2013,” Ubisoft said in a statement to

“We’re happy that fans are excited about the game, and we are taking the time to make sure we deliver a game that lives up to and hopefully exceeds their expectations. We’ll have more details to share soon.”
