Two Rayman Legends Trailers Showcase Absolutely Vibrant ArworkChristopher Metz

Rayman Legends is quickly approaching release time. From what we saw at E3, it’s going to be one of the best looking (art-wise) co-op titles on the Wii U. But since this game will be releasing on most consoles now, practically everyone will be able to play this visually vibrant, stunning game come August.

Mario has had some classic levels throughout his games; some of them great fun, but some of them spooky.  I always found the underwater levels the most worrisome and in homage to these, the developer behind Rayman Legends has produced their own.  In this latest trailer for the 4/5 player co-op, out August 30th, Rayman and two friends go underwater for some fishy slaughter.

Earlier this year Ubisoft announced that Rayman Legends would be delayed until September. Also earlier this year, Wii U owners shed a tear as the once exclusive game sold itself out the other big consoles. But really, can you blame Rayman? PS3 totally just put a pool in the backyard, and Xbox 360 has a jacuzzi. So, you know, sorry babe.
