Rayman Legends Slips Into Early 2013

Ubisoft has decided to push their amazing Rayman Legends from the Wii U launch line-up into Q1 of 2013. This move is worldwide but keeps the release within the "launch window" of the Wii U putting the new date between January 1, 2013 and March 31, 2013. Ubisoft issued a statement about the game stating:
"Rayman Legends will launch worldwide in the first quarter of 2013
"We're happy that fans are excited about the game, and we are taking the time to make sure we deliver a game that lives up to and hopefully exceeds their expectations. We'll have more details to share soon."
This is not really a surprising move considering how many games Ubisoft is set to launch  day 1 with the new hardware. Zombi U will now become their primary focus alongside roughly 5 other games which is good considering how well received that game has been. If I were to guess the true reason for the move, it would probably be a request from Nintendo themselves because the game would have been a direct competitor to New Super Mario Bros. U and it is no secret that many gamer's were planning to skip Mario's newest adventure in favor of the gorgeous Rayman platformer.
