Rayman Legends, originally planned for release at the launch of the Wii U will now be released in early September, Ubisoft has announced.

In addition, the game is no longer a Wii U exclusive and is to be released for Xbox 360 and PS3. All versions will be released in early September.

The new versions are being developed by Ubisoft Montpellier, the same team behind the Wii U version.

"We heard from many Xbox & PlayStation owners and Rayman fans who told us they really wanted to play Rayman Legends on their current system," said Geoffroy Sardin, EMEA chief marketing & sales officer. "We decided to give the fans what they wanted while at the same time broadening the audience exposed to this innovative and memorable game."

This is not only a kick in the teeth for Wii U owners who may have purchased the console on the understanding Legends was a Wii U only game, but it also shows a major lack of confidence in Nintendo's new console by Ubisoft.
