'Rayman Legends' Dated, Demo Coming To the eShop

The Wii U exclusive is coming to Nintendo's new platform on February 26th with a demo on the way very soon. Like next week "very soon."

December 13th, to be precise.

The return of Rayman has been one of the most welcome ideas from Ubisoft, and here's hoping that the same delight that "Rayman Origins" brought us will carry over into the Wii U platformer.

From the official copy:

The classic cast of Rayman, Globox and the Teensies return and are joined by new characters Murphy and Barbara as they embark on a fantasy adventure through a series of legendary worlds with new environments and enemies. Developed exclusively for Wii U, Rayman Legends expands beyond the traditional platforming experience by utilizing the Wii U GamePad in an array of innovative ways to interact with the game. Players can use the Touch Screen on the GamePad to take out enemies, cut ropes to clear a path and move rotating platforms with the gyroscope technology. Rayman Legends features a fresh gameplay adventure to enjoy alone or with friends, and a plethora of creatively themed levels including several musical maps intricately set to popular and original music, a gorgeous underwater haven and a flourishing beanstalk environment.
