It's not pretty in Nintendo land right now, as fans are understandably upset that Rayman Legends, slated for February 26th, has been delayed almost seven full months to be ported to other consoles. While I am thrilled that 360 and PS3 owners are going to get to experience that I feel is probably one of the best 2D sidescrollers coming out this year, it's a bit disheartening seeing some of the backlash from Nintendo fans. As a Wii U owner myself, I am naturally upset that the only game I was looking forward to on the platform this month is now seven months away, but any Nintendo fan saying they are no longer going to buy the game is only doing the Wii U a disservice.
Ubisoft is a third-party developer and they want to make money on their games. They do not feel the Wii U base is big enough or a strong enough consumer base to make money on Rayman Legends at this time. The real way to answer what I may feel is a slight slap to our face is to prove Ubisoft wrong and show up in droves come September to scoop the game up, and make the Wii U the best selling platform for that title. Why? These games get taken from us like this and delayed because they don't believe they will sell strongly. All we can do is prove them wrong. By boycotting and not purchasing the game, you are just vindicating the decision to delay the Wii U version until all are ready for a universal launch. If you want this to change, you have to support the games when they come. It's that simple, folks.
