Rayman Legends has been praised for its stunning visuals and innovative gameplay by media around the world and labeled as one of the most anticipated platformers of 2013.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We heard from many Xbox 360 & Playstation 3 owners and Rayman fans who told us they really wanted to play Rayman Legends on their current system,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Ubisoft. Ã¢â‚¬ÂWe decided to give the fans what they wanted while at the same time broadening the audience exposed to this innovative and memorable game.Ã¢â‚¬Â
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 RaymanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s graphics to the next level.
