Rayman Legends Footage and Screens; Ubisoft trying to block information
Well, we did have the video on our Youtube account, but unlike Nintendo and their generally rather generous attitude towards people mirroring their videos and trailers, Ubisoft asked Youtube to block the video. So instead, here are the first screenshots of the game and the trailer as found on Official Nintendo Magazine. If Ubisoft want to complain about them, I’ll let them go after a multinational corporation.
Here are the screenshots:
It looks really nice so far. Indeed, part of me wonders why Ubisoft is so worried about the game being known about in advance when it looks absolutely amazing. There’s no practical reason to hide the existance of the game, just leave the footage publically available and let the amount of hype fans have for do the marketing for you.
That’s what Nintendo does with the Mario or Legend of Zelda series, and it works fantastically for them. They never cared anyone knew about the Wii U’s 2D Mario platformer or New Super Mario Bros 2 in advance, just let the internet go crazy over the sheer awesomeness of it.
There are some great features too, such as:
The game utilising the same technology as Skylanders Spyros Adventure, where you can put a toy (say of a Rabbid) on the Wii U tablet controller to bring the character into the game. Guess this is becoming an industry standard.
