So wait... are the touch screen parts mandatory? Because I want to play this as a console game, not some mobile nonsense.

So is Rayman Rocks just a mode that consolidates every rhythm level?

You can play levels without Murphy, whose touch gameplay was exclusive to the Wii U

They were on the WiiU version. I'm not sure how the Playstation and Xbox handled those sections. The ideal would be a choice between the two control options, since docked you don't have access to the touch screen.

Already played through it on PC, but will gladly double dip on this. Legends is a gem of a game.

I'm guessing it'll probably have the option to use the awful qte controls from the non-touch versions of the game, so everybody will be happy.

I feel like the title "Definitive Edition" warrants more content. I love the game and will pick it up on Switch but more stuff would certainly be nice.

The Murphy levels were on other systems, but you pressed what would be the A button on Switch to use Murphy. I assume it'll be like this when docked, and touch screen like the Wii U in handheld mode.

The Murphy levels were in no way exclusive to the Wii U.

Not the most excited list of 'definitive edition' features, but that base game is still great and having it portable is always nice.

I'm definitely up for having this game on Switch, but not at that price point. I'll pass for now until it drops. Already have it on PS4/Xbox One/Wii-U.

Challenges on Wii U were legit addicting, but Legends lacks too much content, I was surprised to 100% it so quickly.
Not going to double dip for sure.

You wrote that you can play levels without Murphy, which is what I was replying too. I read your comment as "Murphy levels used touch controls on Wii U, so they weren't on the other versions". Maybe I misunderstood.

The Vita version also had touch controls.

Edit: Pretty sure the Vita is getting more mentions in this thread than the platform this release is coming to.

I'd buy it for 10 bucks

Maybe $20 if they removed the 8 bit levels and replaced them with something actually good.

Wouldn't more people have owned a Vita at the time of its release than people will own Switches when this comes out?

Well most people also don't own a switch... FWIW, I really enjoyed the vita version. Glad it's coming to switch, seems like a really good fit on the system.

In for the Origins levels. Legends was fine outside of the awful touch screen levels and the dumpster fire 8-bit levels, but Origins was so good.

I think so, seeing as it came out like over a year after the Vita came out, but the Switch should more or less pass by the Vita's LTD sales in less than two years

Sure but it's safe to say that the Switch will be a far more successful system than the Vita and I wouldn't be shocked if in a year and a half it outsold the likes of the Vita and Wii U

if it's not, this is a definitive edition that literally added nothing

Of course less people own a Switch right now, it just came out, but that won't be the case by the end of next year as it's a far more desirable system. That's what I'm trying to get at. It's no different than pointing out that most people would look into a PS4 or XB1 version of a game than a Vita version, even shortly after launch

Your bias is showing. You argument makes no sense and your going in circles. Please continue.
