Rayman Origins' First 'Episode' Hits HD Consoles This Christmas

Ubisoft's new direction for Rayman, revealed at its wacky E3 2010 showing, will tell the story of "the birth of an uncontrollable eggplant in a crazy world" on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this holiday. But that's not all...

For only the first episode of Rayman Origins will make its way to "HD consoles" this year. Next year, expect even more Rayman Origins, as more episodes—an increasingly popular tactic—will be made available in 2011. The UBIart Framework, a "complete 'homemade' solution for creating and editing levels and characters," used to create the latest Rayman, will apparently be released as an open source platform next year.

According to Ubisoft's official Rayman Origins site, other platforms, including the Wii, PC, iPad and Nintendo 3DS are being "considered" as things on which to play the game.
