The Rayman Legends development team has been pictured holding posters that call for Ubisoft to release the long-awaited Wii U game, after its parent company delayed the title to bring it to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

The game was meant to be released at the end of February exclusively for the Nintendo Wii U. However, Ubisoft has now delayed the release until September, as it now plans to release the game for other platforms as well.

A protesting fan called Joffrey Babilotte created banners and took images of Rayman creator Michel Ancel and his Ubisoft Montpellier team holding them. These images have since been posted to Ubisoft's Facebook page.

The photos appear to back up reports on NeoGAF earlier this week, in which alleged Rayman Legends developers took to the forums to assure everyone that the decision to delay the game was down to people "high up" at Ubisoft, rather than the development team.

Gamasutra has contacted Ubisoft for a reaction to the pictures.
