We told you a few weeks ago that Ubisoft had confirmed a new Rayman title. More details about the game have been released and we are here to fill you in.
The fourth title in the series will be titled Rayman Raving Rabbids and it will be released for all current generation consoles as well as the PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii. The new Rayman will be a launch title for the Wii, again alluding that the Nintendo console will be out this holiday season.
Players will return to the series as Rayman is threatened by an invasion of crazed, out-of-control bunnies. He must foil the plans of the evil rabbits with his amazing abilities and the assistance of magical creatures. Rayman also has the ability to disguise himself with punk, rock, or hip hop outfits to trick the bunnies.
“It’s a real pleasure for me to be back working on an all-new Rayman,” commented Michel Ancel, creator of the original Rayman game along with other popular games like Beyond Good & Evil and Peter Jackson’s King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie. “After wrapping up Peter Jackson’s King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie, the team here in Montpellier sat down to talk about having some fun with Rayman and his universe. We are running into a bit of a problem, though, because our game has been invaded by thousands of raving mad and vicious bunnies, who have apparently been preparing this assault since the very first Rayman game. We are now sending SOS to all motivated gamers to help us get rid of them as fast as possible.”
