By now, you should realize that the latest Rayman Legends trailer needs no introduction. You should just watch it. Okay, if you really need further incentive, the spies of 4th Echelon make a cameo. Sort of.
Meanwhile, Ubisoft has also announced the UK pre-order bonuses for the game, exclusive to GAME. The Wii U version will let Barbara the barbarian dress up as Aveline De Grandpré, star of Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation. The PS3 version puts Rayman in the garb of Edward Kenway, piratical protagonist of Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag. Finally, speaking of 4th Echelon, the Xbox 360 version gives Rayman a Sam Fisher costume.
Update: It's the same deal for US pre-orders, but at GameStop. Check out the various costumes after the break.
