Once upon a time there was going to be a Rayman game for the SNES. Series creator Michel Ancel was one of two people working on it, but the project never came to fruition. A prototype build of the game that surfaced last fall, however, has finally made it onto the Internet thanks to game designer and archivist Omar…
When Michel Ancel isn’t teasing fans with concept art for a Beyond Good & Evil sequel that was announced eight years ago, he’s apparently searching for a long lost build of Rayman for the SNES. His efforts seem to have paid off earlier today when he discovered an EPROM (erasable programmable read-only memory) of the…
Hey, a new Rayman mobile game is coming soon! The announcement of Rayman Adventures is good news since the character’s previous smartphone outings have been pretty dang good.
A "leaked video" showing Ubisoft's mascot character being selected in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U stirred rumors of suprise Nintendo DLC over the weekend, at least until YouTube's Artsy Omni posted a clip showing how he faked the whole thing.
The fantastic Rayman Legends comes to non-Nintendo next-gen in February. During Ubisoft's fiscal year 2013-2014 conference call, CEO and chairman Yves Guillemot revealed that the second game in the limbless wonder's console rebirth will hit next-generation consoles in February 2014. Can it possibly get any prettier?
One day Rayman will let us down again. We'll look into those beady little eyes and feel nothing but sadness and disappointment. That day is not today. Today is a day to party with Rayman: Fiesta Run.
Basically, you take Burrito Bison—or Knightmare Tower, or Ridiculous Fishing, any launching game, really—add a Rabbid from Rayman, put it in space, and include a nice Angry Birds Space-esque gravity mechanic. What you get is Rabbids Big Bang.
The excellent Rayman Jungle Run is getting a sequel of sorts this Fall. Titled Rayman Fiesta Run, the game brings the endless platforming of Jungle Run to four new worlds with "75+" levels, while adding a new Invasion mode and introducing new abilities such as swimming and shrinking. There's a trailer for you above.
When Ubisoft first announced that former Wii U exclusive Rayman Legends was going multiplatform, the publisher said that the Vita version "includes all of the original Rayman Legends content, as well as five exclusive maps". That's not entirely true.
The mark of a better video game, for me, is that it lingers in my mind. I think about it after I'm done playing with it. It adds something enriching to my life, to my mental catalogue of experiences. The bad games don't stick with me. I mostly forget them. I don't think about them. It's curious then, that just two…
Already confirmed for release on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii U, Ubisoft's Rayman Legends will now be getting a day-one PC release as well. The game drops September 3.
You can take or leave most hype, because it is, just that, hype. We've heard it all before, or so I thought, until I talked to Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot this week. He dialed his enthusiasm up. Way up.
Yes, everyone was mad when Ubisoft delayed Rayman Legends to port it over to other platforms. However, the bright side of the shift is apparent when you watch the video above. The signature cartoony look, slapstick humor and charming animation will be on more than just one console when the game comes out. All is…
It was supposed to be a Wii U exclusive but now Rayman Legends—after that controversial delay—will be coming to a total of four systems on September 3rd. Along with Nintendo’s home console, the action platformer will be hitting the PS3, Xbox 360 and PlayStation Vita.
When Rayman Legends' Wii U release was delayed by months so 360 and PS3 editions could be put together, owners of Nintendo's console were pissed.
Those of us who got Wii U systems last November were supposed to reach an oasis today in our crawl through the machine's oh-so-typical year-one software desert. We were supposed to be playing the sidescroller Rayman: Legends right now.
Acknowledging the profound disappointment at the delay of Rayman Legends release on the Wii U—a holdup that seems to have no other reason than to wait for the Xbox 360 and PS3 editions to launch this fall—Ubisoft Montréal has decided to release the game's Online Challenges mode early, for free, to all Wii U users. The…
Disappointment over a six-month delay of a video game's release may be a first-world problem. But there's a good case Ubisoft is holding Rayman Legends back from Wii U while it gets the newly announced PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions ready for a September release.
