Following Rayman® Origins, our heroes take a 100-year nap, allowing nightmares to infest the Glade of Dreams. Once Rayman awakes from this mysterious sleep, he must set off on a new adventure with his friends to restore order in the universe. While traveling between five different worlds, players must defeat legendary enemies to save the Teenies from these evil villains. Rayman Legends features a wide range of gameplay, including traditional Rayman platforming action and new music rhythm-based stages. In Rayman Legends, a fifth player can join in on the fun by taking on the role of Murfy exclusively on the Nintendo Wii U™ GamePad controller. All of the game’s adventures can be played by up to five players on Nintendo Wii U™.
