Those of you holding out for the somehow-prettier next-gen version of Rayman Legends now have a date to mark on your calendars. Ubisoft announced today that the limbless wonder will be popping onto PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on February 25, 2014.

Ubisoft promises the next-gen versions will feature enhanced visuals and improved load times. The company also detailed how it will take advantage of the next-gen features. The PlayStation 4 version will use the touchpad for scratching Lucky Tickets, and use the Vita for off-TV play. The Xbox One version will include 10 extra challenges to unlock time-limited Achievements. Each platform will also get some unique skins too: Splinter Ray, Ray Vaas, and Globox Vaas on XBO, and Assassin Ray on PS4. You can also purchase Funky Ray with Uplay points.

To mark the occasion, Ubisoft put out one of the strangest, non sequitur trailers of the year. Enjoy.

      Fantastic, even MORE opportunity to have this great game overlooked on more platforms.

        Overlooked by who? Gamers? It got amazing reviews from all the major outlets and I've frequently seen threads on Shacknews praising the game.

          Well, it was 'overlooked' by a lot of gamers because it supposedly didn't sell very well.

            Maybe it should have been called "Call of Duty: Ghosts: Rayman Legends" and it would have sold better...

              It will sell better if they advertise Rayman better.

              It's sad, but that is most likely actually true.

      Is this game only side scrolling?

        No, it scrolls vertically on some levels.

            I _really_ liked the 3d Rayman on N64 way back in the day.

            But I am generally not a fan of side/vertical scrollers.

            Some of the videos I see look cool tho ... I dunno.

            It's a 2D platformer, but it's interesting because the movement is very rich and deep, it's much more challenging than Mario. There are an amazing number of tricks you can do to get a bit more speed or agility out of it. There must be more than 50 move combos you can do, and only the simplest ones are revealed in the game, most you need to figure out.

            It has a set of daily and weekly challenges you can play competitively against other players from around the internets and getting a good score is really hard.

            There are perhaps 100 different levels on the disc (it includes a lot of the previous game as unlockable extras) and they are all well-designed and fun and inventive.

            The art is very good and the whole thing runs at 1080p60 and looks fantastic.

            Local co-op is a blast and very well done.

            The wii-u version makes great use of the touch screen, but it's fine, though not as good, on other platforms too.

      This just means that I'll now have it on every platform possible. Any money I can give Ubisoft at the moment is a good.

      Good to see that the other latest generation platforms will get it too.

      It was one of the best games of last year and deserves to sell a lot more.
