** The NFC functionality, as it has been confirmed that no launch/launch window UsefulNotes/WiiU title (including ''VideoGame/{{Skylanders}}: Giants'') will use it. Despite the later release of Nintendo's Amiibo line this was not patched in, even for the Switch port.

Judging from the concept trailer, the [[VideoGame/RavingRabbids Rabbids]] may have played some role had said functionality been added.

* ScrewedByTheNetwork: Legends [[AcclaimedFlop bombing]] was due to ExecutiveMeddling delaying the game until nearly two weeks before the release of ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'' in America, causing a big internet counterattack against the game.

* RefittedForSequel: The first game was planning on using a world based upon different art styles, but was scrapped early on. This game's premise is the protagonists getting trapped in a painting.

* AcclaimedFlop: Ubisoft reported that all versions of Rayman Legends [[http://www.gonintendo.com/?mode=viewstory&id=214628 have sold poorly]]. The [[http://www.vgchartz.com/game/70792/rayman-legends/Global/ Wii U version sold the best]] out of all versions, making the [[ExecutiveMeddling initial delay]] pointless.

Later comments and ports would suggest this is alleviated with the game due to later comments by Ubisoft.

** So is it a WiiU exclusive or not? First they said yes, then no, then yes again, [[http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-02-07-wii-u-exclusive-rayman-legends-to-go-multiplatform and now they're saying no once more]]. It ended up as a multiplatform title (Wii U, Xbox 360, [=PlayStation=] 3, [=PlayStation=] 4, Vita and PC) with the release delayed until September 2013.

* ExecutiveMeddling: Ubisoft confirmed Legends was delayed due to the [[http://www.gonintendo.com/?mode=viewstory&id=195748 poor status of the Wii U]] in early 2013 and the fact [[VideoGame/ZombiU Zombi U]] [[http://www.gonintendo.com/?mode=viewstory&id=207020 bombed]]. To say [[BrokenBase fans weren't happy]] is an understatement and the backlash resulted in the [[AcclaimedFlop game bombing]].
** Also it's been rumored that Microsoft has a contract clause stating any multi-platform games that have a 360 release planned must be delayed to release with the 360 version.

** The game was also meant to be exclusive to the Wii U console at first with a launch date of February 2013. The poor sales of the Wii U exclusive ''VideoGame/ZombiU'' prompted UbiSoft to make it multiplatform instead, and delayed the release of the Wii U version to coincide with the release of all other versions of the game. Wii U owners who felt this was a missed opportunity for UbiSoft to at least make the game a limited time exclusive during a "drought period" in the Wii U's early 2013 release schedule (some developers on the team even said the game was basically done at the time of the delay) [[InternetBackdraft did not take the news well]]. In fact, [[CreatorBacklash neither did Ancel.]]

* DevelopmentGag: The appearance of [[VideoGame/RavingRabbids Rabbids]] in an [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSlccZt5O2o in-house concept trailer]] could be a bit of a reference to the cancelled ''Rayman 4'', where they were the main mooks of the game before it turned into ''Rayman Raving Rabbids''. The level they're shown in even looks like a 2D version of early screenshots of ''Rayman 4.''
