Rayman Origins Was In The Works For The Wii U

Rayman Legends predecessor could have been on the Wii U

Once upon a time, Rayman Origins was in the works for the Wii U, as Ubisoft expected an earlier launch date for the console. Sadly the team had no choice but to scrap development once they discovered that the system wouldn't be released in 2011. Rayman creator Michel Ancel told Nintendo Power...

See The Brains Behind ZombiU in This Dev Diary

Release due 'this Christmas'

ZombiU is arguably one of the most intriguing Wii U launch titles announced so far, eschewing the bright and colourful approach of certain high-profile rivals and promising dark, frightening survival horror in a zombie-infested London. During E3 it also showed off some clever uses of the Wii U GamePad, by making it a key...

Rayman Legends is Exclusive to Wii U

At least for now

A new Rayman Legends trailer has rolled out of Gamescom, and there's an interesting if not entirely unexpected fact at the end — it's a Wii U exclusive.

Ubisoft's Killer Freaks Evolved From Rabbids

Then shifted to zombies for a 'serious' tone

When Killer Freaks from Outer Space for Wii U was shown at E3 2011, some may have thought that Ubisoft had produced one of the more intriguing teasers for the system. It was a new IP with strange looking aliens that the player could shoot with impunity: it pushed some buttons. This year we've learned...

First Impressions: ZombiU

ZombiU

London crawling

Ubisoft's first-person shooter ZombiU is brutal. Adapted from the ashes of the cancelled Killer Freaks from Outer Space, it sees London overrun by hordes of infected monsters.
