** There are two Rayman costumes where his hair isn't exposed: Sir Rayelot and [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Ray Plumber]]. The former also has wings on his helmet that he can glide with, whereas the latter dons the [[VideoGame/SuperMario64 Wing Cap]] instead.

* AdvertisedExtra: PlayedWith. "The Epic Trailer" hypes up Barbra's addition as a new character, but she's just one of ''several'' princesses that are all playable, ultimately making her addition more cosmetic in a sense (indeed, it's entirely possible to play through the game without using her). At the same time, however, rescuing the princesses is an intentional part of the game's design, and similar to how rescuing the Nymphs -- who weren't playable -- [[VideoGame/RaymanOrigins in the previous game]] resulted in new abilities, rescuing the princesses in ''Legends'' results in more characters to play as.

** Maybe a case of DecompositeCharacter, since the playable character is named "Raymesis" while the clone who chases you retains the name of "Dark Rayman". Their colors are also different.

The game was originally set to be released as a UsefulNotes/WiiU exclusive in February 2013, but a couple weeks before its release date Creator/{{Ubisoft}} announced that it would be delayed until September in order to have a simultaneous multiplatform launch on UsefulNotes/XBox360, UsefulNotes/PlayStation3, UsefulNotes/PlayStationVita, and PC as well. As an apology, the UsefulNotes/WiiU got the game's Challenge Mode as a free download in April. Plus, the production team used the extra time to add a lot of additional content to the game, including dozens of new levels. The sequel retains the first game's gameplay, art style (though the characters have a more painted look to them), and 5-Player co-op (5 players on the Wii U version at least), but goes in a more fantasy-based direction, with worlds based off fairy tales and Myth/ClassicalMythology. The exceptions would be a Dia de los muertos-themed level and an underwater spy-themed level that also pays homage to JulesVerne.
