It’s the kind of statement that you perhaps wouldn’t expect to be made but having compared the new PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Rayman Legends, Digital Foundry has declared Wii U the victor.

That decision largely revolves around how well Ubisoft Montpellier were able to integrate the Wii U GamePad, employing some rather nifty features that demonstrated the controller’s potential. It had begun life as a Wii U exclusive, before the publisher chose to delay the game’s release so that it could be ported to other platforms.

“Despite the enormous leap in power the new consoles represent, in our opinion it’s the Wii U version of Rayman Legends that remains the definitive edition of the game, with the title taking advantage of the GamePad’s unique features in ways that genuinely add variety and more fun to the gameplay,” they wrote.

“Let’s not forget that while this game may have been ported to a vast range of different hardware platforms, it started out life as a Wii U exclusive, built around the unique capabilities of the system. Indeed, it’s the Nintendo console that offers the experience that the developers originally intended for the game, before the last-minute switch to a multi-platform release.”
