Rayman Legends Features 40 Stages From Rayman Origins

Platform Faceoff

Ubisoft's upcoming platformer Rayman Legends offers players a history lesson in the form of 40 levels lifted from its direct predecessor Rayman Origins.

Rayman Legends is the latest entry in the Rayman series and arguably one of the franchise's most important iterations. Though the Rayman character has never been as popular as other mascots like Mario or Sonic, he's recently had something of a resurgence owing primarily the gorgeous, meticulously crafted Rayman Origins. Not wanting players to forget about that title seems a key concern for Ubisoft, so the developers of Rayman Legends are including a substantial reference to the older title in their game. Specifically, 40 stages from Origins will be reworked for inclusion in Legends.

These levels, which Rayman creator Michel Ancel describes as being available to players from the start of Legends, will be largely similar to their source material, but each stage has been aesthetically improved to suit the newer game's more advanced graphics engine.

Further, Ancel also reveals that Legends will include a soccer-style minigame dubbed "Kung Foot," which casts players as various members of the Rayman cast and asks them to use the game's assortment of maneuvers to kick, punch and gradually nudge a ball into the opposing team's goal. It's not a huge addition, but Kung Foot has apparently been one of the go-to games played by the developers working on Legends in their spare time, so it should offer some entertainment value, if only to drunk groups of friends gathered together with little else to do.

Rayman Legends debuts on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U and Vita handheld on September 3.

I hope they arn't using those 40 levels to pad the game out and make it seem like it has more content. This seems like an odd choice to me.

I'm beginning to wonder just like some over at Dtoid if any part of Rayman legends is exclusive to the Wii U because it was meant to be their game after all and then they suffered double when they had to wait for it until now.

They were given 5 months to work on a port. So just changing textures to old levels isn't that long or hard of a process.

If they are added as a bonus stage of some sorts instead of in the story mode, I don't mind it.

Not to mention it's supposedly getting some Vita exclusive content. Not gonna lie but if they put this as a cross-buy title I can't say no to the PS version ):

This is what I mean and I don't think I could say no to the PS version but jesus there needs to be something exclusive for those Wii U owners.

I think it's pretty much damned to be a first-party only machine now. Which is sad as it had promise, it really could have done with coming a year older.

I sure hope this gets a PC release. Origins is SO GOOD, and I really want to play this. I wonder what levels will be ported over. I hope it's the Sea of Serendipidy levels just for that song.

This can only be good. :)

That's odd. I don't mind or anything, there were a lot of fun stages in Origins and I would love to play food world one more time, but I wouldn't have expected that.

Oh great news then! I almost bought Origins.

We took 40 stages from the old game and put them in the new game.
Made new content just like that! ;P

Ah i keed i keed

Rayman Orgins was fun as heck :)

Now where is my pc release?
