Rayman Legends Introduces Barbara

by Bill Hess on August 9, 2012

Barbara is a new character in Rayman Legends, and is one of the cooperative players in the upcoming game for the Wii U. This axe-weilding, helmet wearing barbarian will be on display at GamesCom next week in Cologne.

She is one of the five new playable cooperative characters in Rayman Legends for the Wii U. Rayman Legends on the Wii U will leverage the unique possibilities of the Wii U’s tablet controller interface.

In Rayman Legends, when Rayman and friends discover a mysterious tent filled with paintings of mythical worlds, they are sucked into the paintings and set out on an epic adventure. Rayman Legends is due for the Nintendo Wii U this holiday season from Ubisoft.

    I’m excited for this next Rayman. The last game was my first and it’s sold me and my family over. Great family game night fun right here.

    If the game isn’t announced for other platforms, it can burn for all I care. I may’ve been a Nintendo fan for most of my life but the Wii U isn’t even remotely interesting to me- in fact it’s offensive in the regards to Nintendo cutting corners AGAIN and releasing ANOTHER weak platform that just won’t entice third-party developers next generation. Screw the Wii U, and even though I enjoy Rayman Origins I won’t give Legends any positive attention unless it releases on other platforms as well. Heck, even if it’s just Wii U-exclusive for a few weeks or months the damage will have been done, I’ll personally boycott the goddamn game. I’m really that vehemently against Nintendo’s recent push for last-gen tech inside of “next-gen” systems.

    Yeah, screw this obsolete technology.

    High definition game consoles with Internet-connected content streaming tablet controllers capable of operating independently of the television are so 2003.

      I have literally zero interest in the tablet controller of the Wii U and it’s a very weak console. High-definition consoles? You mean like the 360, which released in 2005 and is only marginally less powerful than the Wii U? The Wii U’s tablet controller ate half the individual hardware budget for the Wii U, meaning the next-gen PS4 and 720 systems will destroy the Wii U in regards to horsepower at a very similar price- hell, we could see the next-gen consoles both launch at $300.

      Fact: Nintendo’s own games are only 720p on the Wii U, a few are even 30 FPS. Sure, Call of Duty(one of the easiest games to run on computers these days) runs at 1080p on the Wii U but that’s just not impressive at all. That’s not next-gen. That’s disappointing.


    I know this will be on PS3 and 360 too. I got last years “Rayman Origins” on Wii first but found out it was on PS3 and was so happy. There’s such a big difference on a big screen TV. That and the Wii controller sucked ass for Raymon. They have you hold it sideways which is fine but to run you gotta hit the trigger which at that point is sideways so you got hitt this button on a point which is just awkward.
