The controversially delayed Rayman Legends has had its release date put forward a couple of days to the 27th August for North America and the 30th of August in Europe.

The date change is thanks to Ubisoft, who are hoping to avoid a clash with the much lauded and hyped Grand Theft Auto V. Although the date change is not many days difference from the original, it’s still better than a kick in the teeth, right?

According to a interview in Nintendo Life with Rayman Legends lead designer, Emile Morel, he was happy to divulge that the delay in release of the game has enabled the company to develop 3D boss stages and 30 new levels in total – I have to say that sounds pretty kick ass.

I guess the old saying holds true: good things come to those who wait.
