The developers of Rayman Legends will be spending time adding new features to the Wii U platformer before the game is released in September.
Originally scheduled for release in March, Rayman Legends was delayed until September so that it could be released simultaneously on Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii U. According to Creative Director Michel Ancel, the studio is using the extra time wisely.
"We have some time to add some content to the game. We want to add characters, bosses, even new levels which is good for the game."
However, Senior Game Manager Michael Micholic recognised that fans were upset by the delay. Speaking during a video to announce the free Rayman Legends online mode, Micholic said: "We just wanted to reach out and let you know how truly humbled we were by the outpouring of support from the community and the fans about the announcement of the delay of Rayman Legends and let you know that it definitely hurt us to see you so upset about the delay."
Ubisoft will be hoping that the peace offering of a free online multiplayer mode and the promise of extra features will make up for it.
