Rock on

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.

That's slightly at odds with what Ubisoft's Michael Micholic said during E3, when he stated that the publisher was "not really saying it's a Wii U exclusive". Has Nintendo secured a deal with the French publisher since then, or is this a case of timed exclusivity? Time will tell, but the implication right now seems to be that it's only heading to Nintendo's console.

Don't worry about that for now, though: rejoice in this delightful new trailer, which features Rayman and company dodging around obstacles a-plenty with a little helping hand from their flying froggy friend. And if you're ever in a tight spot against a gigantic monster, remember: all foes have their ticklish spots.

Rayman Legends will be released in time for Christmas 2012.
