Michael McCullick took the stage at Ubisoft’s E3 press conference to show Rayman Legends for Wii U, which the publisher tipped as a launch title for the new console. The game was shown being played with a combination of Game Pad and Pro Controllers, but also supports WiiMotes. A fifth character, Murphy, has been added to the mix since Rayman Origins, allowing for touchscreen controls and new co-op combos with five players. The demo used wired Wii U Game Pads, but it was stressed the final version would be wireless. Check out some gameplay footage through the break.
