The Wii U may be launching on November 18 but Nintendo speaks of a wishy-washy "launch window" when talking about games, the 23 launch titles aside. Anything due to arrive before March 31, 2013 is considered a "launch window" game, so it can be hard to know whether you'll be playing a game soon or in a few months. Sadly, we now have confirmation it'll be a bit of a wait for Rayman Legends.
"Rayman Legends will launch worldwide in the first quarter of 2013," Ubisoft said in a statement provided to VideoGamer. "We're happy that fans are excited about the game, and we are taking the time to make sure we deliver a game that lives up to and hopefully exceeds their expectations. We'll have more details to share soon."
So no, I'm sorry to say you won't be able to introduce your family to it this festive season.
