The lights are on
Ubisoft's executive director Alain Corre didn't have any official announcements to make, but he said not to "rule out" a 3DS version of Rayman Legends.
Speaking with CVG, Corre said that a port of Rayman Legends for 3DS isn't out of the question. "When you look at Rayman Legends you see it's a very big game with a lot of levels," Corre said, "So, it takes time to squeeze everything and downsize it onto other formats. But we're not ruling anything out for that format. We can't say anything more for the moment, but we can't rule the format out."
You can head to CVG to see the full interview where Corre talks about Ubisoft's relationship with the Wii U, and confirms that Prince of Persia is an important brand to the publisher, but there is nothing to announce at the moment.
Our TakeRayman Origins 3DS had a delayed release compared to the console versions of the game, so I wouldn't be surprised to see Legends take a similar route. The game was delayed in order to be a multiplatform release, which understandably irked a lot of Wii U owners. Ubisoft clearly wants to see Rayman Legends on as many platforms as possible, so a 3DS release seems pretty likely. As a fan of the game, I would like to see more people have the opportunity to play, so I hope it gets a release on Nintendo's handheld.

I wonder why they were so hesitant at first, it just makes sense that it would. I much prefer the Vita, but lord knows the 3DS is the seller.
I played Origins 3DS, and it was not good at all.
Well hopefully it'd be optimized better than the abysmal 3DS version of Rayman Origins. It's nearly unplayable due to graphical scaling, slippery controls (which makes no sense given the tightness on all other platforms), and the terrible sound/music compression.
Who knows, maybe they'd actually put some effort into it this time.
Note how still no one reports on the PC version lacking online servers for the challenge mode.
id double dip for this game
I heard bad things about Origins on 3DS from people, and some of the comments here confirm it. Hopefully they are taking the extra time to work out the issues on the 3ds. I am having a blast with Legends on the Vita and while I wish there weren't so many Murfy levels (not a fan of them) it is a very worthy sequel to Origins' brilliance.
