Rayman Legends is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Rayman Origins. The game takes place one hundred years after Rayman Origins. After defeating The Magician and saving The Glade of Dreams, Rayman, Globox, and the Teensies take a century long nap, during which the nightmares grew in numbers and strength, becoming monsters of legend, like dragons and giant frogs. Rayman and friends wake up, and with the help of Murfy and new friend Barbara, must save the world again.The game was originally set to be released as a Wii U exclusive in February 2013, but a couple weeks before its release date Ubisoft announced that it would be delayed until September in order to have a simultaneous multiplatform launch on Xbox 360, Playstation 3, PS Vita, and PC as well. As an apology, the Wii U 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 has been confirmed in the demo), but goes in a more fantasy-based direction, with worlds based off fairy tales and Greek Mythology. The exceptions would be a Dia de los muertos-themed level and an underwater spy-themed level that also pays homage to Jules Verne.The official site can be found here.
