Rayman Legends gets console-specific preorder bonuses

Publisher cross-promotion dresses Rayman as other Ubisoft characters.

96 Comments

Ubisoft has announced console-specific preorder bonuses for upcoming platformer Rayman Legends.

No Caption Provided

Wii U owners will get a skin of Assassin's Creed III: Liberation's Aveline De Grandpré for Rayman Legends co-star Barbara. PlayStation 3 owners will get to fashion Rayman in the garb of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag protagonist Edward Kenway, and Xbox 360 owners will get to dress their Rayman as if he was Splinter Cell's Sam Fisher, complete with iconic night vision goggles.

The preorder skins will be available exclusively from GameStop in the US, and Game in the UK.

Ubisoft has also unveiled details on Rayman Legends' "20,000 Lums under the Sea" world, an ocean setting that will feature stealth elements and allow players to manipulate the light and darkness of its levels.

Rayman Legends was scheduled to be released exclusively on the Wii U in February 2013, but was pushed back to September to make way for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the title. News of the delay caused some of the game's developers to protest outside Ubisoft Montpellier's offices, though Ubisoft later said the extra time has allowed for the creation of 30 new levels.

Rayman Legends will be released in North America on September 3, and in Europe on August 30.

I just remembered this is going to have Rabbids in it, and no minigames. SO glad I pre-ordered it.

The costumes look great, despite the fact that it's weird the Wii U version is getting a PSVita character, it still looks nice.

Can't wait for the game, Rayman Origins was an amazing return to real Platforming along with DKCR, it's gonna be a shame if this game doesn't get glory, it's gonna be awesome and nobody should throw it off.

The Wii U version's challenge mode,and Miiverse integration will just keep the game more alive which frankly is good for a game that's coming out the same month as GTA V.

This and GTA V are the only games I need this year.

Also, everyone complaining about this: Shut up. This is exactly what pre-order DLC should be. A nice little bonus that won't affect a whole lot. Just a small "thank you" from the developers. Nice one, Ubisoft!

This is one main reasons I like exclusive games for exclusive consoles. Publishers need to stop acting stupid an killing gaming.

@MastahCar It's likely a promotional game box that they put on the shelf to advertise preorders. Some stores do it with cards.

OMG! Now, if tricking people to preorder just for a character skin isn't pathetic, then I don't know what is!

Hopefully it's harder this time; hell, even DKC was harder than this game. Overall though, I really liked it and might be something I would buy. SC though..... they fucked up.

There's something ironic about a poorly selling system getting bonus content from a poorly selling handheld.

I want this game but I would have to be a fool to not realise that this will be on the market place for purchase a few months down the road. and if not *shrugs* oh well Rayman won't look like a Splinter Cell.

Why would Nintendo users get a skin from a game that was exclusively released to Sony? AC4 is coming out on the Wii U... doesn't it make more sense to give Nintendo users Edward Kenway and Sony users the Liberation skin?

I agree, although I don't think they should have delayed the Wii U version.

I rarely pre-order games any more, I've been burned too many times in the past. I also rarely buy anything "new" from Gamestop. Unless these skins have an actual effect on gameplay, I don't really care about them.

So the Wii U version gets the worst pre-order bonus. WTF does Ubisofty have against the Wii U crowd anyway?
