Ubisoft announced earlier this morning that Rayman Legends, the highly anticipated sequel to Rayman Origins, is no longer a Wii U exclusive and will come to both the Xbox 360 and PS3. In addition, the game’s release date was pushed back to early September, nearly seven months later than the original release date of February 26. While this certainly shouldn’t come as a surprise to anybody, it’s definitely bad news for Nintendo and it raises a very important issue: will the Wii U ever gain high-quality, third-party exclusives?

During today’s Nintendo Direct (or Pokemon Direct, as it has been called) Pokemon versions X and Y were announced along with a trailer, release date, and three all new starter Pokemon. Pokemon X and Y will hit store shelves worldwide on October 13 for the 3DS, making these the first 3D entries in the main series (and also the first games that aren’t named after a color).

This fall is a big season for video games. August saw the release of Tranformers: Fall of Cybertron, the best rated Transformers video game of all time. One month later, Borderlands 2 came out, and wowed gamers with its improved storyline and in-depth FPS and RPG gameplay elements. And now gamers can enjoy Assassin’s Creed 3 and Halo 4, shortly followed by the release of the Wii U. With all these games (and more) to compete against, standing out from the crowd right now is, at the very least, an incredibly tough challenge to overcome. After playing the demo for Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, however, I can confidently say that this is another game that everyone should keep and eye on, even with all the other big name titles sitting on store shelves.
