Earlier this year, the French game company Ubisoft announced that Rayman Legends, which had been slated to be a Wii U exclusive, was getting delayed until September 2013
and was also releasing on PlayStation3 and Xbox360. A lot of fans were
enraged that not only would a major Wii U exclusive become a
multi-platform release, but that it was also going to be delayed for a
whopping seven months. In an attempt to make amends Ubisoft eventually
announced that, until the full Rayman Legends release in September, the game’s Challenge Mode would be having an exclusive demo available for free on the Wii U eShop.

Well, the time has come, and the Rayman Legends Challenges App is now available on the Wii U eShop.To coincide with its release, Ubisoft has also released a fresh batch of screenshots and a trailer which are viewable below.

This demo will feature daily and weekly challenges across four distinct areas: Murfy’s Dungeon, The Neverending Pit, The Infinite Tower, and Land of the Livid Deads. Online leaderboards will also be present for players to compare scores with one another.

Rayman Legends itself is going to be released in North America on September 3rd, and in Europe on August 30th on Wii U, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3

Once you get the chance to test it out, tell us what you think of the demo with a comment!

Our Verdict

I write editorials here at Gamnesia and occasionally some news (though far less often than I used to). Here's some of my work, long-form game essays, if you have any interest in that sort of stuff: The Amount of Content in a Game Has Nothing to do with its Price A Game's Atmosphere is Defined by its Mechanics, Not its Aesthetic The Witcher 3's Introduction is Terribly Paced and Too Restrictive of its Players I'm looking forward to The Last Guardian (had it pre-ordered since 2010), Rime, Night in the Woods, and Vane. If I had a niche, it would probably be the somewhat higher fidelity indie games, as take up most of the spots on that list. I'm also developing a no-budget video game with a friend, and you can follow me on Twitter (@TheVioletBarry) to hear about that and anything else I feel like saying. Film, games, it's that sort of stuff.
