Today, Ubisoft confirmed that Rayman Legends will be heading to the PlayStation Vita. The Vita version of the game will be released alongside the console versions in North America on September 3rd but it will also come with some exclusive features and content. We have all the details below:[youtube http://youtu.be/WXlsVfpuL0w]
The Vita version of the game includes all of the original Rayman Legends content, plus five exclusive maps playable with Murphy, the green bottle fly. These maps will make use of the the Rear Touch Pad on the Vita. Seeing as how Rayman tends to be a multiplayer and co-op game, Ubisoft has confirmed that 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 (as seen in the images above) were created by the Ubisoft Montpellier team. Players can dress Rayman in a costume from Prince of Persia, and Globox can wear a costume from Splinter Cell.
Rayman Legends will be coming to PlayStation 3, the Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii U, and PlayStation Vita on September 3rd, 2013.
