New Rayman Legends demo coming to Wii U as apology for delay

New Rayman Legends demo coming to Wii U as apology for delay

In spite of being nearly complete with the Wii U version of Rayman Legends, Ubisoft delayed the game from February to September--a seven month wait for gamers that are already hungry for new content. Wii U owners were even more frustrated when Ubisoft admitted that the delay was solely to accommodate the just-announced PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game.

"There are no issues with the game development," Ubisoft PR specialist Sarah Irvin admitted. "The only reason for the delay is to release on multiple platforms."

Trine 3 a 'no-brainer,' but will 'take a while'

Trine 3 a 'no-brainer,' but will 'take a while'

Frozenbyte is definitely going to work on a new Trine game in the future. "As for the Trine franchise, it is clearly our most successful," a rep for the developer commented, "making a third installment a no-brainer."

However, the developer doesn't want to rush into a Trine 3, because "we don't want it to feel like Trine 2.5, but rather a large leap and something even more awe-inspiring. So that might take a while."

Chasing Aurora review: a glorified tech demo

Chasing Aurora review: a glorified tech demo

One of the first indie releases on Wii U's eShop is Chasing Aurora, from And Yet It Moves developer Broken Rules. While Chasing Aurora shows the potential of indie games for the new platform, it proves to be far too limited an experience.

Chasing Aurora is a racing game that puts players in the role of a bird flying around an artistic polygon landscape. The idea is to fly laps around parts of an outdoor mountainous area, making sure to flap your wings and nosedive to pick up speed, while making sure to avoid walls. It's a pedestrian time trial with a shiny coat of bright polygon paint, featuring different environments ranging from springtime outdoors to snowy caverns.
