Rayman Legends headed to PS Vita, release jumps forward to September 3rd

Rayman_Legends_LOGOSurprising no one, Ubisoft today announced that Rayman’s next big adventure is also heading to the PlayStation Vita alongside the console version on September 3rd.

The Vita version of Rayman Origins was awesome, so it would have been quite the shame if Legends didn’t make it over.  Ubi has announced that the Vita version of Rayman Legends will get a couple of exclusive costumes and a Wi-Fi enabled co-op mode.

Check out the first screens a new trailer and the announcement.

Rayman Legends – PS Vita screens:

Today, Ubisoft announces Rayman fans will be able to enjoy Rayman Legends on PlayStation Vita. Rayman Legends on PS Vita will be released alongside the console versions in North America on September 3rd.

Rayman Legends on PS Vita includes all of the original Rayman Legends content, as well as five exclusive maps playable with Murphy, the green bottle fly seen in previous Rayman games, controlled through the Rear Touch Pad. A multiplayer mode is locally accessible on Wi-Fi and fans from the same country can play in cooperation. Players can also compete with one another in the online challenges and compare rankings in the online leaderboards.

In addition to the five Vita-specific maps, two exclusive costumes were created by the Ubisoft Montpellier team. Players can dress Rayman in a costume from Prince of Persia, the legendary hero of the popular Ubisoft franchise, while Globox can go incognito in a costume from the stealthy spy series, Splinter Cell.

Rayman Legends will also be available on the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system, the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Nintendo Wii U at the same time, on September 3rd.

Rayman Legends retains the fantasy appeal of its predecessor while adding a multitude of clever and entertaining gaming modes, new characters, new environments and a new soundtrack. The award-winning team of artists, designers and composers from Origins has also returned with an advanced UbiArt engine to include multi-dimension gameplay elements, an improved lighting system and updated game rendering that elevate Rayman’s graphics to the next level.
