Rayman Legends: free online challenge mode coming to Wii U i

Postby lminett » 19 Feb 2013, 10:36

The simple answer is no, this does not make up for the fact that the game should have been released, but it may just get some of the fans back on Ubisofts side. We shall soon see.

That looks cool. I'm sure the 10,000 or so people who signed the petition for the full game will be happy with that, along with the countless angry posters on the Miiverse.

Actually, I'm fine with this. I was hugely disappointed with the huge setback, but I think a free selection of online levels (possibly indefinitely) does cut the mustard. I'm always open to free games, demos, etc. and I'm sure by the time they come out my Wii U will have a bigger library than it currently does (Nintendo Land and Trine 2). I tip my hat to you, Ubisoft.

Well, it seems the vox populi was heard loud and clear. Sure, it's not the full game, but to test out a new feature for the series is actually not a bad trade-off for the wait. This should keep fans occupied as well as giving them the chance to hone their skills for when the game is finally released.

I wonder if Nintendo have heard our complaints in regards to the Wii U's Virtual Console in the same light. One can be hopeful, but in terms of this, this is fitting news enough. Well done to those that petitioned and aired their complaints. Your voices were heard, and we have all been rewarded (in part at least) for your efforts.

It's not exactly a "sorry", but it's better than nought. Not that we should really have to say "at least it's not nothing!", but that's the way it goes with big corporations. Feel sorry for the developers more than anyone, their game's reputation has been damaged severely, and they now have to work like mad to correct someone else's mistake, someone far higher up and lazier.

As long as the whole thing is free and not got paid dlc.

Zen pinball 2 and tank tank tank are free downloads and it takes about a fiver to get each one with enough to count as a game.

That seems fine, but maybe it's just because I wasn't that hyped about it in the first place.

I wasn't intending to buy this game before or after the set back, but I'm glad that this mess that Ubisoft's got itself into means that I get a freebie.

Ubisoft's pretty much giving us the game already, if they keep on doing this they may as well just release the game.

Just got Rayman Origins (tenner, couldn't miss out really!) so I may give this a go, I understand the fans rage, but I'm not a big fan of Legends, I know that sounds odd, but Origins appealed why Legends didn't... Still, as mentioned, may give it a go, after all, free is free!
3DS Code = 4914-3785-6773 - feel free to add! :)

Loving my Wii U and it's libary!

I wasn't planning on buying the full rayman game but it'd be cool to try this when it comes out!

Unless they delay online mode, that is....
