Considering the game was already 1080p and 60fps on the PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U (our review here), we doubt the game can look all that much better. There will be exclusive costumes for each platform though: Globox: Splinter Ray, Ray Vaas and Globox Vaas on Xbox One and Assassin Ray for the PS4.
The Xbox One version will get 10 challenges that coorespond with 10 time-limited Achievements and the PS4 will benefit from the touchpad on the controller. Both will feature some sort of visual enhancement and faster load times.
Read on and make sure to check out the Snoop Lion (?!) Rayman Legends announcement video and some screens of the costumes. The game is already available to pre-order for $59.99(!!) at Amazon at the moment, and there's a browser-based demo to check out,

Today, Ubisoft announced that Rayman Legends will enter the next generation of gaming on PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, across North America on February 25th 2014.
Thanks to the enhanced capabilities of the next-gen consoles, the award-winning graphics of Rayman Legends have been upgraded and the loading time between maps suppressed. Players on both platforms will also get exclusive costumes for Rayman and Globox: Splinter Ray, Ray Vaas and Globox Vaas on Xbox One; and Assassin Ray on Playstation 4. They will also be able to buy the Funky Ray costume with Uplay points.
Players will also be able to take advantage of exclusive features on each console. The Xbox One version will include 10 exclusive challenges to unlock new time-limited Achievements. The Playstation 4 will allow use of the Playstation 4 controller’s touchpad for actions such as scratching Lucky Tickets, as well as making and sharing screenshots and videos with the community, and using the Playstation Vita to continue playing the game even with the TV turned off.
In preparation for the launch on next-gen, a browser-based PC demo of Rayman Legends is now available to play online. The demo will feature three different levels from the Rayman universe. Playable maps include Teensies in Trouble, Toad Story and the fan-favorite musical map “Castle Rock.” Play the demo using your Xbox 360 controller or with a mouse and keyboard.

Rayman Legends is the sequel to the already acclaimed platformer Rayman Origins. In this opus, Rayman and Globox awaken after a 100-year nap that allowed nightmares to infest the Glade of Dreams. The Supreme Being Bubble Dreamer sends them once again on an adventure to fight the evil creatures and restore order in the universe. Rayman Legends features a wide range of gameplay, including traditional Rayman platforming action and new musical, rhythm-based stages. The award-winning team of artists, designers and composers has also returned with an advanced UbiArt engine to include multi-dimension gameplay elements, an improved lighting system and updated game rendering that elevate Rayman’s previous graphics to the next level.

The critically acclaimed Rayman Legends is now on PlayStation 4. Michel Ancel, celebrated creator of Rayman, Beyond Good & Evil, and Rabbids, brings his innovative creativity to next-gen consoles.
The Glade of Dreams is in trouble once again! During a 100-year nap, the nightmares multiplied and spread, creating new monsters even more terrifying than before. These creatures are the stuff of legend: dragons, giant toads, sea monsters, and even evil luchadores. With the help of Murfy, Rayman and Globox awake and must now help fight these nightmares and save the Teensies.
Rayman, Globox, and the Teensies are off wandering through an enchanted forest when they discover a mysterious tent filled with a series of captivating paintings. As they look more closely, they notice each painting seems to tell the story of a mythical world. While focusing on a painting that shows a medieval land, they are suddenly sucked into the painting, entering the world, and the adventure begins. The gang must run, jump and fight their way through each world to save the day and discover the secrets of every legendary painting.
