Ubisoft has today announced in their E3 2012 conference that the fifth game in the Rayman series will be a Wii U exclusive and feature brand new mechanics designed around the tablet interface.
Featuring the wacky cartoon graphics that everyone has come to enjoy, Rayman Legends will feature singleplayer and multiplayer co-op for the Wii U, Nintendo's next-gen console. The game will feature mechanics designed around the Wii U tablet, including the ability to take out enemies or clear paths and use the gyroscope technology to manipulate and rotate platforms on the TV screen.
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 game features a variety of uniquely-themed levels, including several musical maps set to creative soundtracks and a spooky, medieval theme. Players also can connect online with friends for a variety of challenges that test their skill and speed, and can see where they rank on the worldwide leaderboards.
