Last week Ubisoft simultaneously announced that its twice-delayed Wii U-exclusive Rayman Legends was being bumped from February to September and was also going multiplatform. Ubisoft has now said it will be offering an exclusive Rayman Legends demo for Wii U owners, and admits it understands why people might be frustrated by the delay.
"Thanks for all your feedback regarding Rayman Legends in all of its forms. We have heard you and we will continue to listen. We understand your frustration and that you want to get your hands on the game," said Ubisoft's Facebook page. Last week the publisher confirmed that the Wii U version of the game was ready, and the only reason behind the delay was to launch simultaneously across Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U.
No date was given on when Wii U owners might be able to access the new demo. "We are working with the development team to provide you with a new, exclusive demo for the Wii U soon. Stay tuned for more."
There's already a Rayman Legends demo up on Wii U, which has been available since December 2012.
An anonymous Ubisoft developer has expressed their frustration with the delay, saying "for practical matters, you'll have to wait for some months for the game to be released and will most likely serve for more content to be added and do it better. For us, this means we've spent 6 months barely seeing our wives, kids, and friends for nothing because, after all, such a haste wasn't needed. Believe it, it was a hell to swallow these news."
Rayman Legends will be released for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U in September 2013. For more information on the game, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
