We’ve written a lot about Ubisoft’s upcoming 2D platformer, Rayman Legends, and it goes without saying that it is one of our most highly anticipated games of the year. Hot on the heels of 2011’s universally loved Rayman Origins, this game has some serious expectations to live up to.

Here are two more amazing trailers to show off exactly how its going to shatter those expectations into millions of pieces.

The first has Rayman pitting off against an evil mechanical dragon in an epic boss battle which makes my inner NES childhood shriek with glee. It haven’t seen a 2D boss battle this epic intense in years. Precision jumps, pixel timing. Looks downright incredible.

The second trailer features one of the game’s stealth levels and demonstrates how the Wii U’s touch screen can be used to aid allies through the dark corridors. Distracting enemies and setting off traps, it’s all hilarious and 100% fun.

Check out some high resolution screenshots below as well to get a feel for the intense level of detail Michel Ancel and crew were able to put into this game.

Rayman Legends will launch for the Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and PS Vita on September 3rd.
