Rayman Legends will be a huge system seller for Wii U - Ubisoft

Delayed game will help Nintendo shift consoles, says Xavier Poix

Ubisoft France's Xavier Poix has claimed that Rayman Legends is a game that will help Nintendo sell more Wii U consoles.

Rayman Legends may have been delayed until September so that it may be released at the same time as the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions but despite the backlash from fans, Poix has great faith in the power of Rayman.

Speaking with GamesIndustry.biz, Poix said that the best is yet to come from Wii U. "Selling a new way of playing can take some time, and we know the power of the brands from Nintendo and we know from the fans that the majority of what will be the system sellers are not yet available. And on our side, Rayman will be one of them for sure. We really expect Rayman to be a huge system seller on the console."

Do you agree? Will Rayman Legends help Nintendo sell more consoles?
