Rayman Legends may have been delayed until August to put it on the PS3 and Xbox 360, but Ubisoft has made good on their promise and added the Wii U-exclusive Rayman Legends Challenges App to the Wii U eShop. It’s a free download that includes access to four of the game’s levels: Land of the Livid Dead, Neverending Pit, Infinite Tower, and the GamePad-controlled Murfy’s Dungeon. If that weren’t enough, weekly online challenges are also included in the Challenges App.
Also available this week, on the 3DS eShop, is Mega Man IV, the Blue Bomber’s 1992 NES adventure.
Hit the jump for more details on both of these titles as well as three other new games released as part of this week’s Nintendo Download.
Wii U eShop
Rayman Legends Challenges App – The Rayman Legends Challenges App allows users to compete against players from around the globe in daily and weekly challenges. Jump in and play challenges on several different maps, including the exclusive Wii U level Murfy’s Dungeon.
Mega Man IV – Originally released in 1992 for the Nintendo Entertainment System, Mega Man 4 provides the same action-based game play the series is known for. In this game, Mega Man has the ability to charge up energy inside his Arm Cannon, allowing him to fire larger and more damaging blasts. Rush, Mega Man’s canine companion, is also back to help battle the robot baddies.
Crazy Construction – Build a tower higher and higher by stacking objects of all shapes and sizes together in any way you can. Balance telephone boxes, road cones, televisions, desks, chairs, curling stones – more than 100 in total – in a giant pile to reach the goal line. Build past mutant birds, hurricane winds and black holes sent by the evil Crash Construction Company as they try to bring your tower crashing down.
Color Commando – In this game you get to hunt for treasure! However, many evil color monsters are blocking your path! Pick up color blobs and try to outsmart the monsters!
Wii Virtual Console
Sengoku – In this side scrolling action game set in Washington City, which was initially released in 1991, the player takes the role of a super warrior who must battle against ghosts from the past bent on taking over the present. The main feature of this title is the ability to change characters in mid-play. If you release an incarcerated character while fighting against the enemy, that character becomes available for you to use. The key to a successful strategy is adeptly switching among the ninja dog, samurai or ninja according to the situation. You can also pick up items like weapons and orbs that give you magical attacks. Not only is there adventure to be had in the regular world, but also in a parallel universe, where stages change at a hectic pace, with never a dull moment.
