'Rayman Legends' touch pad functions, plus more, detailed for PS4

One of the questions people always want answered when it comes to Rayman Legends on the PS4, is what type of functionality it will have when it comes to the PS Camera and of course with, the touch pad.

Today, had the opportunity to catch up with Rayman Legends' lead game designer Emile Morel to talk about the peripheral features we will be seeing on the PS4 and its touch pad.

"The PS4 version using the controller touchpad. When we first saw the touchpad on the PS4 controller, we immediately realized that it could be a great solution to one of our concerns as developers working on a game like Rayman Legends.

"To explain, since the imagery is all hand-drawn, there are lots of amazing and funny details our artists put in the character animations and level backgrounds. Most of the time people play the game very fast (because it’s such a rush!) and don’t always stop to check all these unique details.

"The Vita version has a cool feature that allows you to zoom in and out of the image by just moving your fingers on the touchscreen, allowing players to see all of these miniature additions. When we saw the PS4 controller we realized it would be a great tool to include the same feature in the next gen versions of the game.

"Combined with the Share button on the PS4 controller, we created Camera Mode which gives players an easy way to share screenshots and videos of their play sessions in the game.

"It’s a fun feature that allows you to be as creative as you want when capturing your own signature screenshots. The touchpad of the PS4 will also be used in the game to make you scratch your Lucky Tickets. Which just feels really natural, giving you the feeling you’re scratching an actual lottery ticket for the big win," Morel said.

Camera Mode will allow players to take a shot of a certain moment from a game, zoom in or out into a certain part of the image and then they can capture the exact moment they want.

This type of moment is shades of what we heard from Sony when they first introduced the PS4 back in February of last year. We'll all be able to share our favorite moments when the next-gen version of Rayman Legends hits retailers on Feb. 18th.
