The new trailer for the upcoming Rayman Legends was leaked. Apparently, this was going to be shown at this year E3. It's the first Wii U game trailer showing footage and features!

Well, Ubisoft surely had a massive leak, as the first video for Rayman Legends is on the net now!

This is the sequel to Rayman Origins, and was previously spotted on a survey (http://www.maxconsole.com/cgi-bin/maxconsole/rknewz.pl?function=detail&id=RKLS0000007247&cat=PLAYSTATION 3).

Also, the trailer shows off the new Wii U toy functionality!



Alongside some new gorgeous-looking platforming gameplay the video also shows toys being placed onto the Wii U controller in the style of Activision's Skylanders, which then transport new characters into the game.

In January Nintendo confirmed new NFC technology for the Wii U controller, but this is the first time we've seen it in action.

NFC allows the system to read and write data wirelessly, much like the way Activision's Skylanders action figures interact with the 'Portal of Power' reading device. Now we've seen it in action.

Nintendo gamer explains in its latest Wii U feature: "NFC has essentially superseded QR codes as a method of data transferral, with the obvious benefit that RFID chips contain much more info.

"With Wii U supporting multiple controllers, NFC should allow you to transfer and carry around save data on your pad, and could easily be extended to allow the trading of Pokémon or Smash Bros trophies.

"Swapping players in FIFA and Madden would be a doddle, and would certainly explain EA CEO Peter Moore's comments that 'we'll be able to differentiate ourselves from the competition more easily with our sports line-up.'"


Of course, Ubi is removing the videos from YouTube, but you can watch it on the source link below or, better yet, download it HERE! (http://www.mediafire.com/?j5d8d8n4mmokhay)

It surely looks amazing!

Apparently, Ubi didn't have any more choice and just confirmed the game development LOL

“An internal video showing images of Rayman Origins’ sequel has leaked over the Internet,” said the firm. “This video was intended as a purely internal demonstrative video, and in NO way represents the final game, the final console or their features.
“This video was destined for internal production teams who often create game prototypes with work in progress development kits.”



I guess they won't remove them from YT anymore, so here's the video:

These toys are my biggest fear for the WiiU. It's a cool concept and in some scenarios I can see it being intuitive, but I'm not running to K.B to grab Rayman action figures.

Of all the incredibly cool things that they could do with this controller (basically a giant DS), Rayman shows off nothing interesting. If anything they are showing exactly what they shouldn't do. Rayman Orgins is a great platformer and the addition of some gimmick controls will only hurt the overall game play. I thought Nintendo understood this about platformers, Super Mario Bros Wii, Donkey Kong Returns, and the new Kirbys didn't force any obvious gimmicks to go along with the controller, and they came out great.

We did see this with all early titles to the Wii though. Hopefully they've learned from the past mistakes and understand only to use special controls when they can actually enhance the game play, not just slapped on for show. They seemed to have figured that out late in the Wii's life so hopefully Rayman is an exception.

Regardless I see some crazy potential for this controller, just not so much with platformers.

i believe that the trailer revealed rather more than just rayman ;)

wind the video to 1:21 and look at the controller (rather than the guy looking like he's about to crap himself) ignore the power cord that is on the dev kit controllers and look at the back of the pad, is that a rear facing ar camera i see that wasnt supposed to be revealed until e3? ;)

as to the "toys", well apart from the fact that my kids loved playing with them independent of the skylanders game is it really that bad, millions of people pay real money for download crap, with these things you pay real money for a physical item that provide the dlc so its yours to use and play on whatever console you choose and i'd assume you can use it on any nintendo network PID as well.

oh, and dkcr forced the use of completely unwarranted waggle controls, would have been far better just using a classic.

Ow snap I did not even notice that rear camera. Again I feel Nintendo has it right with involving the player to create a new experience with unique controls. It's just I can't justify buying these toys. Sure they are physical objects that are basically DLC. I hope there is an option to purchase DLC without having to purchase a toy. It's just adding to the cost. Not to mention a huge part of the Nintendo fanbase are older male gamers. We don't want to be bothered buying that plastic crap. Hopefully there will be DLC compromises or this will only be used with games that justify a much younger, and exclusively younger audience.

On the other hand I can see this being a huge money maker for Nintendo especially with the Pokemon titles. I just hope they don't sacrifice their older, far more loyal, demographic for this.
