NYCC 2012: Rayman Legends Co-op Impressions

The recent news that Rayman Legends, the successor to last year’s stellar Rayman Origins, has been delayed until 2013 is a major bummer. Playing a demo of the game on a Wii U console at NYCC has only made that news harder to bear, as my time with it left me wanting much, much more.
