Pre-Order Rayman Legends, Get an Assassin's Creed or Splinter Cell Skin

An in-game virtual skin, not, you know, real skin.

You want skins? Rayman's got skins. Three of 'em, to be exact. The much-anticipated but also sadly delayed Rayman Legends is now getting a pre-order bonus unique to each system it launches on. Grab the Wii U or PlayStation 3 versions and you'll get an Assassin's Creed skin for either Rayman or Barbara. Go the Xbox 360 route and you'll nab some night vision goggles straight out of Splinter Cell. Sort of unusual for a Rayman game, but a bonus is a bonus.

Rayman Legends was originally scheduled to be a Wii U exclusive released in early 2013. Ubisoft announced a significant delay for the title, bumping it back to September so it could launch across all three major platforms simultaneously. Wii U owners were miffed, to be sure, but a consolation prize in the form of the Rayman Legends Challenge App was released in late April. It's free, it features new levels that are regularly swapped out, and did we say it's free? Because it is.

Rayman Legends is set to release on September 3 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U. Co-op will support five players locally. Also be sure to check out the new Rayman Legends trailer.
