Ubisoft has released the online challenge mode for Rayman Legends on the Wii U. This challenge mode is free, and it will be updated on a weekly basis. Check it out in the trailer above.

Back when Ubisoft initially decided to delay the once-Wii U exclusive from February until August alongside newly announced Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions, fans were really upset. A lot of consumers picked up the Wii U specifically for Rayman Legends, and they expressed their collective frustration to Ubisoft at a constant clip.

This challenge mode, then, comes as an apology.

The good news, though, is that the Rayman Legends team recently confirmed that this delay has allowed them to add something like 30 additional levels to their game. So, cheers to that.

Finally, Ubisoft has officially confirmed the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U release date for Rayman Legends. The game will be available starting on August 27th, 2013. Was the release date slip for the Wii U a good idea? Sound off below.
