The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 release of Rayman Legends has been brought forward by one week, Ubisoft has announced.

The game will now launch in the UK on February 21. It had previously been due to launch on February 28.

Though a reason for Rayman's accelerated release has not been provided, it may be to avoid clashing with Square Enix's Thief, a major next-gen title due to launch on February 28.

As well as including all of the content included with the current-gen versions of Rayman Legends, the Xbox One and PS4 ports include brand new costumes and additional console-specific features, including 10 exclusive challenges on the Xbox One version, and touchpad and Remote Play functionality on PS4.
