Vita version of Rayman Legends delayed

Ubisoft has delayed the Vita version of Rayman Legends by two weeks, from this Thursday, August 29 in Europe (August 30 in UK) to September 12. The Rayman Legends release date on other platforms remains this week in Europe and next Tuesday, September 3 in the US.

Explaining the move, a spokesperson told Digital Spy: "The release of Rayman Legends on PS Vita has been delayed in order to apply the final level of polish gamers expect from a Rayman game. With unique touchpad controls, five bonus maps and two bonus costumes, we're certain that Rayman fans will be fully satisfied.”

Rayman Legends was originally due for release as a Wii U exclusive in February 2013, but was delayed to allow for a multiplatform launch on Xbox 360 and PS3. A Vita version was then announced in May, while a PC version was revealed just last month.

We reviewed the game on PS3 and Wii U and said: “Rayman Legends is easily one of the most feature-rich platformers you'll likely see, rife with accessibility and challenge in equal measure.” Get our impressions of the Vita version in this Rayman Legends preview published in May.
