Japan - Rayman Legends is Wii U exclusive



A little more proof that Nintendo and Ubisoft work well together? Rayman Legends is releasing as a Wii U exclusive in Japan, with Nintendo handling publishing duties. Let's hope it moves some Wii U units.

If The Wonderful 101 is proof of anything its that Nintendo can't always turn things to gold in Japan.

It's good to see that the game is still a Wii U exclusive in Japan, but is Rayman even popular over there?

What an amazing box art. Not that our is bad by any means but it seems Japan happens to get better box art a lot.

So Rayman isn't blue anymore in Japan?
Also, great boxart, better than the one I've got, but it seems they used a rather generic font for the english title, that's kinda weird.

Seriously does this even matter? The only thing that sells in japan are RPGs which are on PS3 not WiiU and not X360. Not to mention X360 software is NEVER in the top 50 of sales in japan since Lost Odyssey like 5 years ago. This proves nothing at all, it just shows Ubisoft is smart for only having it on WiiU in japan and possible even vita lol. Ubisoft still took a crap on Nintendo for Rayman this post just means someone is in denial :P

However, I like both boxarts, so I don't mind. ^^

Weird. Not releasing it on XB360 I understand but not on PS3 is weird. But good.

I like that box art.

It's a bit "side-on", which I guess is accurate to the game at least, but it's just so vibrant and upbeat.

Makes me happy just looking at it.

Nice boxart. Glad it's still being published by Nintendo there after the delay fiasco.

Pretty beast boxart. I've never seen the Rayman logo printed in japanese either. I like it.

So much better again, this boxart. Less violent too, btw.

Dat boxart. Weird to see it a Wii U exclusive, I'd expect Ubisoft would've released a PS3 version at least. But still, maybe if Nintendo hadn't published, Japan wouldn't have get the game at all.

Quick, Someone invert the background and give them angry Kirby eyebrows!!!

@nGen Metroid could probably be the original for that, Sadly. Then there was also Spirit tracks.

Wow, this has got to be the first time two different box arts for the same game are both awesome.

@Swedish_Otaku Has more to do with who's publishing it rather than what console Ubisoft wants to release it for.
