Rayman Legends should have been with us today, but we all know how that turned out. However, Ubisoft is clearly of the opinion that every cloud should have a silver lining, and CEO Yves Guillemot has made assurances that the company isn't just sitting on the finished Wii U code — it's working to make it even better than it already was.

Speaking to Kotaku, Guillemot said:

The Wii U the team is working hard on the Wii U [version] to make sure it continues to improve, so it can become one of the best Wii U games. We hope it can be one of the top games Ubisoft creates. What's very important to consider is that when a team has more time, they are able to continue to improve the quality of the game. When we saw we had more time, we saw all of the possibilities. Some of the possibilities are the social features that we are seeing today, but also new bosses, new possibilities that will take the game to a level that people will love.

Now that the furore surrounding the delay has diminished somewhat, how do you feel about these comments? If the Wii U version is going to be made even better by being held back, is that a good thing? Or would you have rather had the game on time? Drop a comment to tell us.
