Rayman Legends Creator Joins Protest on Wii U Game Delay

Rayman creator Michel Ancel and staff members from Ubisoft Montpellier have joined fans in protesting the delayed release of Rayman Legends on the Wii U in order to simultaneously release the former Wii U exclusive on the PS3 and Xbox 360. Apparently the Wii U version is ready to go, but parent company Ubisoft wants to keep it locked down until the other versions of the game are done. Our pal Andrew Eisen shared his thoughts on that yesterday in this amusing video

The picture shown to your left shows Ancel (posted with fan Joffrey Babilotte) holding up a banner he made that is written in French. It translates to:

"Release Rayman, Support Ubisoft Montpellier."

Rayman is featured on the banner saying "SVP" – "please."

Babilotte made the sign and brought it "to the gates of Ubi Montpellier," according to Joystiq who broke the story.

Assuming that Ubisoft ignores fans and even the game's creators, Rayman is tentatively scheduled for release simultaneously on Wii U, Xbox 360, and PS3 in September.
