When it comes to 2D platformers on the Wii U and determining the best in class, Rayman Legends is undoubtedly in the conversation. Smooth, gorgeous and a lot of fun, it was a high point on the system and is still a delight to play.
We're rather looking forward to its arrival on Nintendo Switch, then, in the predictable form of Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition. It was announced back in January, and still has a vague 2017 release window following its appearance in the Nintendo Direct; we did, however, learn of a couple of new features for the Switch version.
An interesting one relates to local co-op, in that players on two separate systems can team up together. This isn't anything 'new', you can do that in some 3DS platformers for example, but it's an option unique to the Switch with this game courtesy of its portable form. No online co-op though, but that's not particularly surprising as this is a platformer.
In addition it was confirmed that the anarchic Kung Foot mode will be expanded - there'll be a 'solo mode' and an option to have eight teams duke it out in a tournament.
Now we just need a release date, Ubisoft...
