Ubisoft unleashed this new teaser for their follow up to the excellent Rayman: Origins today. Looks pretty snazzy, huh? Check out this interview where Xavier Von Poix IV (head of Ubisoft France) talks at length about the company’s massive software support for Nintendo’s new console right out of the gate as well as whether or not the new tablet will manage to appeal to casual gam-*snoorrrre* Sorry, what was I saying?
In case you haven’t had your fill with Rayman lately, the 3DS Virtual Console continues to show signs of life with today’s update. Rayman for the Game Boy Color is now available at the low, low price of $4.99. About 25 dollars less than what I threw at this thing when it originally came out at the turn of the century. It’s a decent enough portable platformer but for those of you who have yet to check out this franchise, I’d suggest downloading the DSi remake of the original Playstation entry or holding off until Origins for 3DS hits store shelves this coming Tuesday.
In case you hadn’t heard (which is likely judging by sales), a brand new Rayman game subtitled Origins was recently released across all 3 home platforms. Now what the hell is a “Rayman” you may be asking yourself? Well, it’s a long running series of mostly action/adventure platform games starring an armless, legless Frenchman as he runs and jumps around beautifully designed worlds killing bad guys and collecting stuff. If the thought of that doesn’t rivet you, then I guess you probably wouldn’t be reading this website to begin with. I’m sorry for making things awkward.
