Rayman Legends' "second demo exclusive to Wii U" morphs into free online challenge mode available April

You may have heard that the upcoming Rayman Legends for the Wii U, had recently been delayed until September, and also was no longer going to be a Wii U exclusive. Well, the uproar from the community was, shall we say, quite vocal.

Ubisoft offered us a "second demo", which at the time, without any details, seemed like a slap in the face. However, today they made clear what that new demo would entail, and it's quite a bit more interesting:

The next demo will feature the Online Challenge Mode, which will have new challenges added every week, plus you can play against your friends online. The devs noted that they will be playing as well, so we'll have to work hard to beat them!

The video also explains how they are going to continue to add content to the game, given the additional time that they have, and that they'll be sharing more about that in the future.

All this will be free, so from April until September this will be available on the Wii U at no cost. Is this a case of Ubisoft doing right by it's fans? Perhaps the developers were able to make their case to the company brass to get this out there? In any case, I'll be checking it out for sure, and it will make the wait a little more bearable.
