Rayman Legends demo for PS3 and 360 coming Aug. 20 (update)

A demo for Ubisoft's upcoming platformer, Rayman Legends, will be released Aug. 14 in Europe and Aug. 20 in North America on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, Ubisoft announced today.

The demo will include three levels, "Teensies in Trouble," "A Toad Story" and a musical map set to the tune of Ram Jam's "Black Betty." The first two levels include the game's co-op Invasion Mode, and players will also be able to swap character costumes in the Gallery of Heroes. Two separate Rayman Legends demos were previously released on Wii U.

Check out the video above, which was released today alongside the announcement and highlights the "Goo Glow" map from the game's "20,000 Lums Under the Sea" level.

Rayman Legends was originally scheduled to ship earlier this year as a Wii U exclusive. It was pushed back to Aug. 30 in Europe and Sept. 3, 2013 in North America, when it will be released on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, Windows PC and PlayStation Vita. CEO Yves Guillemot said that ZombiU's unprofitability convinced the studio to bring Rayman Legends to more platforms.

Update: A subsequent press release from Ubisoft revealed that the PS3 and Xbox 360 demos will be available Aug. 20 in North America. We've updated this article to reflect the regional differences.
