If they give me this and watch dogs...I'll forgive Ubisoft. It's like the challenge mode from NSMBU but on the rayman engine and with online

Wow, this is much better than an exclusive demo. Also great to hear that they're making more content and are not just sitting on the game.

Ok, I'm good with this. It's free, and the final product will have more content then originally intended.

Now spread the word
Make the Wii U version sell like gangbusters and make the PS3 & 360 versions go bust

Think about it
If the 3rd party companies saw the massive numbers on the Wii U version
they will wet themselves and beg to make games for it

A band-aid is all this is - one I might check out, but I'm still not buying Legends on any platform now. The damage has already been done [and GTAV + Nintendo Wii U games + 1/2 New Systems will kill this game dead on all formats].

Shame.

I hope you guys enjoy this [if I don't try it out], and the game in September anyway. :)

At least the game makers did something right. No thanks to Ubisoft... At long as the added stuff doesn't DELAY anything again. This is a good way to deal with the 6 months wait.

If this challenge mode has the touch stuff in exclusively to Wii U it gives me hope that the regular game will also retain the exclusive levels. It would be great if all the versions had the same number of levels and then Wii U had the extra levels only it could do.

Will it be as 'exclusive' as the game itself was supposed to be?

Ubisoft THANK YOU! Now everyone show support, this is probably the best we could have expected and I applaud them for trying to make ammends.

If RMC could forward on something from GoNintendo from the fans to show we do indeed care about not being treated like trash as Nintendo fans and appreciate them doing something to fix the horrible news last week.

Alright, this sounds pretty nice, actually. Still not even sure if I'll even be getting the full game now that it'll be releasing in September with a bunch of other games I'm more interested in, but we'll see ;)

Glad to see some major change here. Looks like they intend on rectifying the recent mistakes. Personally, I'm ok now.

Thank you Michel&Team! We get to play some form of Rayman and it seems to be fun enough to last a while. With daily added challenges etc. Ok it's not the full game but they are doing the best they can do! I'll definitely get Rayman in September if they do this free challenge mode thing right. :)

I hope people regain their trust and hope in the product. If this game fails it'll only do damage to the industry. We don't want them to think creativity and beautiful art doesn't sell a game.
I admit at first I said I wouldn't buy the game anymore but I was just angry at Ubisoft...I don't have any negative feelings towards Team Rayman. And it would be a shame to skip a grand hand drawn adventure due to UbiHate.

I'll laugh if the release date for the content is April 1st, and once that day rolls around, it doesn't show up.

Seriously, my only reaction to that would be to laugh.

True that

Fellas, It's up to you
Do you want the game to prosper or do you want your hate to consume you 'till you wind up like those whom own a PS3 and Xbox 360 in terms of attitude?

Damage control...But GOOD damage control. I'm still getting this game. I was never to boycott it, nor Ubi (specially after ZombiU). I want this game NOW though! As intended. And it would have been good for Nintendo also if it stayed exclusive, but OK. This is OK, since Lego City, MH3U and Wonderful 101 are coming out soon anyway. Some games I am after anyway.

And the Wii U exlusive will stay, of course. Would be plain stupid if they had to through those away. just water down the PS360 versions and keep those Wii U things intact on the WiiU. No biggy.

Curious at to what is up on Miiverse now ;)

For those whom are boycotting -- here's the 6 trillion dollar questions
1. Do you WANT Rayman to fail?
2. Do you WANT the Wii U to succeed?

If you answered no to #1 and hell yeah to #2 - I suggest y'all should lighten up

it's funny how two weeks ago everyone was balls-out upset (including me) over the huge delay and were swearing the game off for good. after one announcement, everyone is now back on the bandwagon and "let's all support it so it beats the 360/ps3 versions!"

this is nice, but.... i'm still gonna be reserved for a bit. let's see what else you got, ubisoft.
