Rayman Legends Release Date Revealed, Challenge Mode App Arrives in eShop Today

Alongside the free app on Wii U, Ubisoft confirmed a September release date for the delayed game.

Rayman Legends is coming to Wii U (and other systems) on September 3 in North America and August 30 in Europe, according to Ubisoft. Additionally, the free Challenge App for Rayman Legends is available today for the Wii U on the eShop in North America and Europe.

The Challenge App will only be available for Wii U users and is the first time a Rayman game has implemented online features, as leaderboards and daily/weekly challenges will continually be updated.

The app’s lobby will display different paintings, each leading to a new challenge in one of four levels: Murfy's Dungeon, The Neverending Pit, The Infinite Tower, and Land of the Livid Deads. Randomly generated challenge levels will be offered on a daily and weekly basis, allowing for competition between one to five players. Global leaderboards will keep track of the challenge records. Murfy's Dungeon is a Wii U-exclusive mode in which players will use the GamePad to interact with objects in the level to help other players get through the chaos.

This app is being launched to try to make up for the six-month delay of the Wii U version to allow for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions to be created. New levels and bosses will also be added due to the delay.

Rayman Legends will arrive on the Wii U on September 3 in North America, and August 30 in Europe.

I feel ubisoft did the right thing.  This makes it worth the wait till September and gives me something to play on my WiiU. Hard to believe I haven't really played the system since christmas.

I tried to download the Challenge mode before I left for work this morning, but it isn't there yet. Hopefully it'll arrive before I get home tonight I'd love to sit down with the family and play some Rayman Legends!!!

Played with it a bit. Yeah, it's the same demo with the same 4 levels with a bit more polish, off tv mode, and weekly/daily challenges.

Murphy challenge is pretty tough, it's like Elite Beat Agents on steroids.

I like unlocks system.

Great stuff.
