And that's the version I'll buy. It's such a perfect fit for the system, as much as Ducktales, D&D or Castle of Illusion would be, you hear me Capcom/Sega!

YISS!
Do you know how awesome Origins looked on the Vita?
I hope the include multiplayer this time, then its the best version.
(Maybe the WiiU Touchpad parts as CrossControler DLC for Ps3/Vita)

Since Vita has a touch screen, I assume it will contain the Murphy levels?

I'm getting it for the Wii U, but I could potentially see myself also getting it for Vita.
5 exclusive Murphy levels, 2 new costumes inspired by Prince of Persia and Splinter Cell, and local co op.

La edición portátil incluirá, además del contenido original, cinco mapas exclusivos con Muyfy y dos atuendos nuevos, uno inspirado en Prince of Persia y otro inspirado en Splinter Cell. Además también vendrá con un modo multijugador local a través del cual podremos acceder al divertido modo cooperativo del juego.

isnt legends more about the multiplayer????

i really enjoyed origins on vita and was so dissappointed that ubisoft fucked up the 3ds version(played only the demo).

will buy it on wii u, but only if itll go on sale.

ubi soft should go fuck themselves for delaying this game beyond good and evil and also releasing it as a multiplatform game.

So it's official now?

Fucking sweet. That's the version I'll be getting then. I'm surprised they didn't put the AssCreed Liberation costume in.

So awesome.

I'm assuming we would need two copies of the game to play local co-op, right? Might or might not be worth it, depending on the price.

Between this and Dragon's Crown imported from the US, this August is going to be pretty fucking great.

Huzzah, playing Origins on the Vita was a visual pleasure. Trying that 3DS demo after doing so was horrible ;-;
Meh, I'm playing it right now and having zero problems. Lower resolution, same awesome game. Apparently there was a 3DS update that sped up some of the choppier games, but I've honestly had very few complaints about it.

EDIT: Btw Rico, nice to see you migrate over from Dtoid!

"Rayman Legends on Vita includes all of the original Rayman Legends content [...]"
I guess this means all Murphy levels? That would make this version considerably better than the PS3/360 one (except for MP fans).
