Rayman Legends to have playable demo on Wii U launch day, new screenshots

A playable demo for Rayman Legends will be available through the Nintendo eShop on Wii U launch day, Nov. 18, Ubisoft confirmed with Polygon today.

The demo includes three challenges from different sub-worlds of the game, including the "Teensies in Trouble" level previously featured at E3 and the "Castle Rock" musical level, set to the tune of RamJam's "Black Betty." The demo will also grant access to the Collection of Heroes, the in-game closet for character costumes, as well as a knight uniform for blue blob Globox.

Players can go at the demo solo or with up to four other players, with one player on the GamePad.

A representative from Ubisoft told Polygon the levels were chosen to showcase how Rayman Legends benefits from the various Wii U controller configurations. While "Teensies in Trouble" is more single-player focused, "Castle Rock" showcases co-op capabilities using the GamePad and requires teamwork to complete the level.

The publisher also released a batch of new screenshots showing Rayman and company in action.

Rayman Legends will release during the first quarter of 2013.
