One of everyone’s favourite platformers is getting a Vita version alongside the console version when it releases this August.

Rayman Legends was rumoured to have a Vita version in development, but now we’ve got confirmation. This August 29th (August 30th in the UK and  and September 3rd in North America), Rayman Legends is coming to PSVita, PS3, X-Box 360 and Wii U – and here’s the details;

Today, Ubisoft announces Rayman fans will be able to enjoy Rayman Legends on Playstation Vita. Rayman Legends on Vita will be released alongside the console versions on August 29th in EMEA territories and August 30th in the United Kingdom.

Rayman Legends on Vita includes all of the original Rayman Legends content, as well asfiveexclusive maps playablewith Murphy, the greenbottle fly seen in previous Rayman games, controlled through the Rear TouchPad. 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 were created by the Ubisoft Montpellier team. Fans will have the opportunity to dress Rayman in a costume from Prince of Persia, the legendary hero of Ubisoft popular franchise, while Globox can be dressed in a costume from the famous spy series, Splinter Cell.

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.

Originally touted as a Wii U exclusive and discovered/planned through an online survey, this game has taken its time getting here – but thankfully the wait’s almost over.

    Awesome, I love Rayman! Origins was a sure blast on the Vita. I’ve much preferred this version over the console versions (I also have the 360 ver). Looks and plays beautifully on the Vita’s 5 inch OLED screen. Glad to finally see an confirmation of Legends Vita. Day one buy.

      Would be a day one buy for me also! Hopefully I will have day one money to make the purchase! : ) In any case it’s a must buy for me!

  • Considering Origins was the 2D reboot, the spritual sequel should be truly amazing. Can’t wait!
