Well it was only a matter of time. A Nintendo fan by the name of John Smith has started an online petition, ordering Ubisoft to bring back the original Wii U release date of Rayman Legends. The description states that mutliplatform availability is just fine, but delaying a complete game is unforgivable. As of this writing, the petition has garnered 6,475 signatures in the the few days since the delay was announced. You can sign the petition right here.
Here's what the petition says in particular.
Fans have been patiently waiting for Rayman Legends for the Wii U since it was announced as a launch game since June of 2012, and for many it was going to be one of the highlights of the Wii U's launch due to the critical success of Rayman Origins. Legends was, and still is, being used worldwide as a major tool in showing the creative capabilities of the Wii U in stores.
The game has had a well-received demo released on the Wii U eShop, and it seems to be very close to completion, with a previous release date being announced less than a month from now.
But now Ubisoft has disappointed hundreds of thousands of their fans by delaying an almost completed game for a further seven months so Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Rayman Legends lacking Wii U centric features can be released at the same time as the Wii U version.
