UBISOFT has announced that Nintendo Wii U owners can now download the Rayman Legends Challenges application on the Nintendo e-Shop for free.

The Wii U exclusive Online Challenges App is a totally free application containing the Online Challenges Mode of Rayman Legends.

In this game mode players will find updated Daily and Weekly Challenges to compete online with online multiplayer support.

The Online Challenges Mode being released includes:

  • The Land of the Livid Dead,
  • The Neverending Pit,
  • 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 also allow players to discover and improve on their Awesomeness Level, which can be increased by winning cups at the end of challenges and levels.

The bigger the cup you win, the more points you will earn.

Similar to experience level, players will increase their Awesomeness Level to unlock the Daily and Weekly Extreme Challenges dedicated to the most competitive Rayman Legends players.

Additionally, players can collect lums during the challenges to unlock several exclusive characters throughout the game.

Rayman Legends will be available on the PlayStation 3, the Xbox 360, and Nintendo Wii U on August 29th.
