Rayman Legends Definitive Edition — the latest enhanced port of the chaotic, yet popular platformer originally from 2013 — is set to launch September 12 on Nintendo Switch.
Announced as part of a new trailer from developer Ubisoft, this installment marks the first of the Rayman series to release on a Nintendo console over the last four years and is set to introduce new features to the familiar title. Utilizing the Switch’s portability, the game will offer a maximum of four player local cooperative play over wireless connection, as well as interactive touchscreen features such as maneuvering stage elements and toggling enemies. Numerous graphical improvements have been made as well to accommodate release on the newest Nintendo console.
In addition, a demo for the game that was accidentally enabled briefly on the European eShop servers a few days ago has been pulled down and will be available in North America as well “later this summer.” No reason is known yet as to why the download was released preemptively.
Rayman Legends Definitive Edition will stand as the second title developed and published by Ubisoft for the first year of the Nintendo Switch’s lifespan, releasing only two weeks after the surprising Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle — which was revealed at this year’s E3.
