Rayman Legends Challenge Mode coming to Wii U this week

Four Rayman Legends levels will be open for daily and weekly challenges.

The Challenge Mode for Rayman Legends will be coming to Wii U this week, Nintendo has announced.

Designed by Ubisoft as an apology to Wii U owners for delaying the game, the Rayman Legends Challenges App will be released on the eShop for free on Thursday April 25.

The Challenges App will offer a series of daily and weekly challenges for between one and five players, and records will be stored on global leaderboards. Four levels will be featured, including the exclusive Wii U level "Murfy's Dungeon."

Rayman Legends will launch for Wii U this September alongside the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game.

Ubisoft said earlier this month that the seven-month delay for Rayman Legends has allowed for the creation of 30 new levels for the game.

"We just wanted to reach out and let you know how truly humbled we were by the outpouring of support from the community and the fans about the announcement of the delay of Rayman Legends, and let you know that it definitely hurt us to see you guys so upset about the delay," said senior game manager Michael Micholic back in February.

 I'm a little confused here. Are the challenge levels seperate from the main game? As in you can both download and play them for free, without the game?

Awesome!  Challenge levels instead of an actual demo or (hey!) the full game!  Sweet Ubisoft!  Too bad I won't have money left to buy this game in September!

The team behind the game are seeming like a nicer bunch of people with each Rayman Legends story.. Sure, I'm pretty jealous that the Wii-U gets an exclusive mode and the chance to enjoy more Rayman.. But you can't deny the team have heart

I take my hat of to them for this. They didn't have to do anything. Shows how the "developer" is truly sorry for decisions made by the publisher!

The Wii U is dead. How can you make something come alive, when it is a corpse?

@leeko_link Luigi's Mansion is awesome! Get it ASAP. Fire Emblem is really good too if you don't already have it!

@BelaidKL Well, You shoudln't be jealous, mainly because this game wasn't planned to be multiplatform at the beginning.

 @ziproy I see no connection between the companies. Ubisoft is doing a fantastic job. Not only are they spreading their software to all platforms, but they are still maintaining their loyalties to the Wii U at the same time. Gotta love them.

@AzulSoul Yeah, that's the thing... I can't be too bothered because at least it'll still come to both the 360 and PS3.. It's just a nice thing to do for all those with a Wii-U who plan to get the game

@Queuing_is_back @Elaisse In a year from now, when you've bought your high spec "next gen system", try saying that again looking at the amazing WiiU line up while you got nothing to play and tell me PS4/720 are in the cave. Pro tip: they're not, just give them time. OK?
