Wii U platformer Rayman Legends has been delayed until Q1 2013, Ubisoft has confirmed.

"Rayman Legends will launch worldwide in the first quarter of 2013," Ubisoft said in a statement to VideoGamer.com.

"We're happy that fans are excited about the game, and we are taking the time to make sure we deliver a game that lives up to and hopefully exceeds their expectations. We'll have more details to share soon."

Prior to the delay, Rayman Legends had been due to release on Wii U alongside the console on November 30.

Ubisoft's other major Wii U titles - ZombiU, Assassin's Creed III and Just Dance 4 - are still on track for the console's launch, the publisher added.

Wait what?! This out of the blue, and also very depressing news for the Wii U's launch....

I'm going to assume this is because of the somewhat backlash from the fans, when Ubisoft said that around 30% of the single player game would be spent playing as the touch screen guide murray, instead of simply just Rayman platforming.

I would like to here more news surrounding this though please Ubisoft!

EDIT: Also going up against Mario in NSMBU would be kind of rough for the game. Rayman Legends is almost certainly shaping up to be the better game of the two, but it's just better business sense not to go up against their biggest rival in the genre on launch day. They would make more money from releasing it a bit later.
