Gameplay in Eon Altar is built around combat, NPC interactions, and exploration. Fighting foes is a turn-based tactical affair that puts all five characters' abilities to the test, not to mention your own ability to work with your team. Since each human player has their own smartphone screen/controller, information can be passed to individuals without the group knowing about it. What's that about a secret treasure hidden behind the barrel? Why sure, I'll share that with the group. After I get all the good stuff for myself.

Some new features showcasing the Playstation 4 and the Xbox One's hardware arrive with this port. The power of next gen grants enhancements to the already stunning graphics for Rayman and his colorful crew, and each console receives special bonuses. Xbox One fans are granted time-sensitive achievements, and allowed access to a variety of console exclusive costumes for Rayman, including Splinter Ray (from Splinter Cell), Assassin Ray (from Assassin's Creed), and Vaas Ray (from Far Cry 3, though why you would want to turn a fun loving guy like Rayman into a mohawk-wielding sadist is beyond me.)

Although we wouldn't think it possible, Ubisoft swears the visuals in the upcoming versions of Rayman Legends have been improved. Because apparently they weren't gorgeous enough already? The screenshots certainly look good, we have to admit. The Xbox One version will include ten exclusive challenges to unlock time-limited achievements. PS4 owners get to use that fancy controller's touchpad to scratch Lucky Tickets as well as share screenshots and videos with the community. Remote play is even enabled with a PlayStation Vita in hand. No more pausing the game to go to the bathroom. Just take it with you.

I’d think most would agree that, despite the advertisement for the game, Nintendo Land simply didn’t draw people into purchasing the Wii U as much as Wii Sports did for the Wii. Nintendo seems to be realizing this, replacing Nintendo Land as the bundled Wii U game with a combination of both New Super Mario Bros. U and its expansion, New Super Luigi U! These two games, provided on a single disc (no downloading necessary) will be included along with the newly Mario themed Wii U Deluxe bundle to arrive on November 1st for $299. Those that still want to try out Nintendo Land for themselves, however, can purchase the game separately for $30. Also, the Legend of Zelda Wind Waker Wii U Bundle is still available if desired, which comes with digital downloads of both the game and the 25th Zelda Anniversary Hyrule Historia book.

Rayman Legends takes the gorgeously drawn platforming action from Rayman Origins and fleshes things out with new characters, new maps, new challenges, and plenty of other creative diversions. It's one of those games that pushes absurd situations and laughably fun artwork on top of gameplay that can be as simple or as challenging as you like. The co-op mode is especially hectic, as it allows a handful of players join in and work together to collect every lum and find every secret while smacking each other around. Cooperatively.

Initially, The Wonderful 101 was intended to feature lots brand staples, such as Mario, Link, and Pikachu, as the super heroes of the game, possibly having them save the world as a team. The group of Power Ranger-like hadn’t come until later on into the development. Hideki Kamiya of Platinum Games stated why this was at Gamescom:

The Wonderful 101 is clearly a Japanese style game. Having a mixture of different series elements within it, one can easily see the Power Rangers here, but also the Green Lantern-like superpowers that the heroes possess. Depending on which “Wonderful One” character you play as, each one possesses a unique transformation to materialize a giant weapon out of thin air, such as a sword, shield, gun, etc. These are used to combat the various monsters and enemies invading Blossom City and destroy them. A quick video will demonstrate what we mean:

Although Rayman Legends officially releases on most major platforms this September 3rd, those that can’t wait another week or so can look to grab the demo featuring a handful of levels and features to taste. These version's demos will also include the three levels spanning across the universe of Rayman and a small sample of the competitive mode: Invasion (a tough, remixed version of previous levels). The maps featured are “Teensies in Trouble”, “Toad Story”, and fan-favorite “Castle Rock”. Every map will contain their own Invasion Mode counterpart stages too.

Coinciding with Nintendo’s 2013 “Year of Luigi” promotion, both Mario and Luigi get-ups will be available to players who choose to buy the Wii U version of the game. Once you rank in least 20 minutes of gameplay, the game will automatically unlock the costumes for Rayman and Globox (Rayman=Mario & Globox=Luigi). The game almost looks like a more cartoonish and chaotic version of New Super Mario Bros. U with these! Take a look at the duo in action:

There may be an extra incentive to grab the game on the PC via Steam for those who own multiple platforms. If you navigate to the webpage for Rayman Legends on Steam, you will see that as a reward for pre-purchasing the game, you will receive an immediate copy of Rayman Origins to enjoy. For fans who do not already own the game, this may make grabbing the PC version all the better.

Seeing brother against brother is never a pretty thing, be it the Double Dragon boys fighting over a less than fair maiden, or Mario and Luigi scoping the town for some Shroom.  I've always known that Luigi was the better of the Mario brothers; after all he is younger and taller.  Proof has finally been found in this new footage for New Super Luigi U that compares the Plumbers Two and shows how Luigi's unique abilities affect the game.
