Ubisoft announced earlier this week that Rayman Legends would be getting a “Definitive Edition” on Nintendo Switch. The publisher has also said that if the game “does well” on Switch, it could “certainly open the possibility for a new game”.
The following statement was made on the Rayman series’ official Facebook page, yesterday.
What’s interesting about what they said is that it can be interpreted in more than one way.
One one hand, it seems as though they are talking about a new game in the Rayman series. Then again, it could also possibly mean that future Ubisoft support for the Nintendo Switch is at least partially dependent on Rayman Legends Definitive Edition’s sales.
There is no telling what the price of this three-year-old port will be, but one could assume that Switch owners won’t be willing to shell out $60 for a game that could easily be purchased for a fraction of the cost on virtually every other platform.
And we all know that Ubisoft doesn’t usually shy away from releasing full-priced Rayman ports at Nintendo console launches…
Rayman creator Michel Ancel said yesterday that “the adaptation of Rayman Legends on the Nintendo Switch is like a love story between Nintendo and Rayman”, and that he and his team are “preparing surprises” for the game’s Switch version. Take a look at the full video below.
