The excellent platformer Rayman Legends is coming to the Nintendo Switch in the form of a Definitive Edition, which Ubisoft calls the “ultimate edition” of the 2013 game. Today, Nintendo published a new video in which Rayman creator Michel Ancel talks about his reaction to the Switch and why he thinks it’s a good fit for the platformer.
“Rayman Legends is like a board game,” Ancel said. “It means playing with your friends in the same room, and this console is perfect for that. It’s the concept of console we’ve been waiting for a long time. An HD console, powerful, portable.”
Ancel went on to say that Rayman Legends for Switch is “like a love story between Nintendo and Rayman because of course the colorful universe and the Rayman spirit go perfectly with Nintendo’s spirit.”
Ancel went on to say that the Switch version of Rayman Legends will include “several surprises,” in addition to the Kung Foot mode. He didn’t reveal any of the surprises, but teased, “We are preparing other surprises because the console has a lot of qualities in the multiplayer area.”
Rayman Legends is one of three games that Ubisoft has announced for the Switch. The other two are Just Dance 2017, which is a launch title for the Switch, and the open-world extreme sports game Steep. Release dates for the Switch version of Rayman Legends and Steep have not been announced.
The Switch goes on sale on March 3.
