Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: Rayman
Platforming fans get a chance to jump into the shoes of Michel Ancel’s endearing limbless hero again today with the release of Rayman Origins. The 2D side-scroller features four-player co-op play with jump in/out support, with friends controlling Globox and Teensies to help out, over 100 characters, 12 environments, and more than 60 levels. Players will get to learn about Rayman’s past as they unlock new abilities and piece together the Glade’s history.
Gamers looking forward to Rayman Origins can try it early today by downloading the recently launched demo on Live and PSN. The demo includes three maps from the Jungle, Food, and Ocean worlds, as well as a custom map feature to navigate each world.
Michel Ancel, the creator of Rayman, Beyond Good & Evil, and Raving Rabbids, will be returning to the Rayman series next month with Rayman Origins. As the November 15 release date approaches, Ubisoft has sent along some new shots showing off the 2D side-scrolling action and four-player co-op, as well as a Q&A with game director Sebastien Morin. The Q&A reveals that the game will be comprised of five universes and 10 different worlds, as well as an extra world (Land of the Livid Dead) that will be “a bit hard to reach but is a whole new universe.” Each world will unlock an ability to continue onto the next, though any planet can be revisited as many times as the player wishes.
Ubisoft is going all-in on Sony’s upcoming PlayStation Portable successor, PS Vita. The studio has announced six titles currently in development, including some from their biggest franchises. Vita owners can look forward to diving into new entries of Asphalt, Assassin’s Creed, Dungeon Hunter Alliance, Lumines, and Michael Jackson the Experience, as well as the upcoming Rayman Origins.
Rayman Origins is currently making the rounds at Comic-Con, and to make sure everyone is suitably excited about Michel Ancel’s return to platform gaming, Ubisoft has released some new screenshots. Origins, set to ship this holiday for the 360, PS3, and Wii, will feature four-player co-op sidescrolling action and reveal more about Rayman’s past.
The Comic-Con train roars along today with Ubisoft’s announced plans to regale attendees with their wares. Gamers will be able to check out the first public demos of Just Dance 3, Rabbids: Alive & Kicking, and Rayman Origins. The company will also be holding a panel discussion based around the Assassin’s Creed franchise, which will include writers from the upcoming game Revelations and animated film Embers.
Rayman is returning to the realm of the flat this holiday in a new 2D action-adventure platformer, Rayman Origins.

Origins is set to ship for the 360, PS3, and Wii and include over 100 characters, 12 environments, 60 levels, and four-player jump-in/out co-op play. Either solo or with friends, controlling Globox or one of the two Teensies, players must collect pieces of the Glade’s history to put together the story of Rayman’s origins.
