February 7, 2013 | Posted by Jeffrey Harris

Ubisoft announced today in an official press release that Rayman Legends will now also be released on the Xbox 360 and PS3. The game will be released in September 2013.

The Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game are being developed by Ubisoft Montpellier, the same development team as the Wii U game.

According to Tony Key, senior VP of sales and marketing at Ubisoft: “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. We decided to give the fans what they wanted while at the same time broadening the audience exposed to this innovative and memorable game.”

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 Rayman’s graphics to the next level.

Rayman Legends was originally set to be a Wii U launch title. The game will also feature a new playable character Murphy who is controlled on the Wii U version through the Wii U GamePad.
