Rayman Legends has now launched and the world is finally getting a second dose of 2D platforming without limbs. The game is available for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, Wii U, and Vita. There’s a ton of buzz around Legends, and it’s currently the highest rated Wii U game on Metacritic.
However, customers have begun to notice a problem with one version of the game. The Vita port of Legends is missing tons of courses! All 28 “Invasion” levels are nowhere to be found on the handheld version.
Don’t panic Vita owners! Ubisoft plans to solve this problem. A free patch will soon be released for download. This update will add in all missing Vita content.
“That said, I know some of you have questions about the Vita version, so here’s what’s going on: Due to a longer development time than expected, we couldn’t initially include the Invasion Mode – essentially, a second take on existing Rayman Legends maps — in the Vita version of the game. However, we can confirm that the Invasion Mode will be added via a free patch, at a later date. With more than 100 levels, online Coop and challenges, Kung-Foot mini-game, 5 exclusive touch challenges developed specifically for the VITA and 2 exclusive costumes, Rayman Legends already includes a lot for customers to love, and features the same outstanding graphics and gameplay design as the home console versions.” –Gary Steinman, Ubisoft Communications Manager
There ya go! Everyone’s happy!
However, there is one question left… Did Ubisoft only patch the missing content in after an online backlash? Did they ever plan to update the Vita version? We’ll probably never know…
