I’ve been having a hard time getting excited for the Wii U, Nintendo’s next home console. Partly because I’ve just never been a huge Nintendo fan. Partly because I found the Wii to be a disappointment (but see prior point). And partly because that of that big tablet controller. I’m not a fan of touch controls.
But we haven’t seen much in the way of gameplay and I’m hoping Nintendo can win me over. I really do love to love games, y’know.
Now French site Gamkult have leaked a trailer for Rayman Legends. Not sure how long it’ll be online but here it is:
I liked how the basic game looks, but the segment where the girl is using her finger on the tablet controller to drag things around turns me right off.
But what was most surprising is the Skylander-esque system shown at the end, where physical objects are placed on the tablet controller to influence the game (or even to spawn new characters in there).
I think this’ll be really popular with a lot of people but grumpy old me sees it as both a cash cow and another source of clutter on my living room table.
