Meanwhile, the Wii U-exclusive Rayman Legends Challenges application is now available for the Nintendo eShop. This is a free release that contains the Online Challenges mode of Rayman Legends. The Online Challenge mode includes:


  • A crazy run through the Land of the Livid Dead
  • Dizzying descent into the Neverending Pit
  • A fast and frantic sprint through the Infinite Tower
  • A synchronized adventure through Murfy’s Dungeon, a challenge dedicated to the Wii U GamePad where one player controls as Murfy on the touch screen while another controls one of the classic characters such as Rayman.


The demo will let you see and improve your “Awesomeness Level,” which can be increased by winning cups at the end of challenges and levels. The bigger the cup, the more points you earn. Awesomeness Level will let you unlock Daily and Weekly Extreme Challenges in the game.
