Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition Heads to Switch Later in 2017

Ubisoft has confirmed the release window for Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition.

The upgraded and “ultimate version” of the game will launch sometime later this year, for the Nintendo Switch.

Players can expect “all the game’s traditional features, such as Kung Foot,” as well as  “some brand-new surprises” in the Definitive Edition.

Here’s a rundown on the game, via Ubisoft:

Players’ all-time favorite, Rayman, is back in the game thanks to Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition, the ultimate version of the critically acclaimed Rayman Legends created by Michel Ancel. This edition includes all the game’s traditional features, such as Kung Foot, plus some brand-new surprises. Nintendo’s history has included the Rayman brand since the franchise’s beginning, with titles such as Rayman Advance for Game Boy Advance, Rayman 2: The Great Escape for Nintendo 64 and Rayman Raving Rabbids for the launch of Wii.

Rayman, Globox and the Teensies are off wandering through an enchanted forest when they discover a mysterious tent filled with a series of captivating paintings. As they look more closely, they notice each painting seems to tell the story of a different mythical world. While focusing on a painting that shows a medieval land, they are suddenly sucked into the painting, entering the world, and the adventure begins. The gang must run, jump and fight their way through each world to save the day and discover the secrets of every legendary painting.

Previously, Ubisoft confirmed two other games for the Nintendo Switch, including Just Dance 2017 and Steep.
