    More from the latest Nintendo Power issue.. The Raving Rabbids are getting a new game, and it's not another mini game collection!

    Actually it's Ubisoft's fault, but other than that I agree with you.

    Looks like they are letting it die...the Rayman series, that is. [​IMG]

    Pfft, they haven't been Rayman games at all, except for the first one.

    Then Ubisoft realised the rabbids were far, far more popular, and pretty much left Rayman to rot.

    Scum.

    The rabbids are pretty cool IMO.. charismatic and funny characters.

    Using them to make a "real" game on the Wii instead of another lame mini game collection is a great decision from Ubisoft IMO.

    Don't see why all the complaining here, seems to me that Ubisoft is finally doing things right.

    Yeah, and where the hell did Rayman go? Rayman Advance was my favorite GBA game, and now they replaced him with rabbits with ADHD. AHHHHHHHHHHH

    I bloody love the Rabbids! Not saying Rayman wasn't good but I'd also like to see a game that wasn't just a dodgy collab of minigames. This doesn't sound like what I was waiting for though heh...

    This is a far better idea than yet another mini game compilation and I can't see why we can't have this and a proper Rayman game.

    The last proper new Rayman game was Rayman: Hoodlums' Revenge GBA, which was ok and before that there was very good Rayman 3. What I love about the main Rayman games was the distinctive look & the excellent worlds that they involved. Far better then Jax & Dexter anyway.

    Rayman Raving Rabbids on the DS was a proper Rayman game, which got a lot of bad reviews, but I thought was a pretty fun game.

    Sooner or later, Ubisoft will bring him back.

    Behind you! I know you looked!
    Absolutely, I loved Rayman Revolution/Rayman 2 and Rayman 3 (contrary to most people I didn't like Rayman Advance/Rayman PSX, just because I suck at 2D platforming games aha), and I'd love more than anything to see a new iteration on the Wii. I'm irritated it's another Rabbids game, but at least they're making an adventure game this time around. The concept doesn't sound too fantastic though, but I guess we'll see.
    And Jak & Daxter was amazing [​IMG]. Perhaps not up to the level of Rayman Revolution/Rayman 2, but certainly better than Rayman 3 IMO.

    I agree other than the "Jak and Daxter" comment, I think that series is better than Rayman IMO.
    I like that they're fading from the minigame genre, Just the plot and how its played sounds odd. Hopefully more light will be shed on it upon getting closer to release date.

    To be fair, the Jak and Daxter series is a lot different from the Rayman series. Jak and Daxter is the more traditional 3D platformer like Mario 64 and Banjo Kazooie where you explore huge levels and collect various objects and accomplish goals. The Rayman series has collectibles as well, but there is a clear beginning and end to the levels and a set pathway to the end. It's not anywhere as linear as the Crash Bandicoot series, but it did steer you to a set goal.

    I love Rayman 1-3. I played them in order and each gave me a unique and incredible experience. Rayman 1 had some of the most gorgeous 2D hand drawn graphics I've EVER seen and one of the best music soundtracks I've ever heard as well. Rayman 2 and 3 were huge departures, but apparently they were reboots of sorts, so that's ok.

    Hope this turns out well. I also hope Ubisoft does a REAL traditional Rayman game in the future too.

    +1 don't understand all the bitching. I think this could be really good. Ever since I heard about the rabbids I loved them. But then I realized it was a mini gam compilation...

    Hmm, Rabbid GTA clone, Rabbid Katamari clone, or a crappy shoulda been a wiiware game crap fest.
    Considering theres only one real objective, it kinda sounds like a wiiware game almost.
    Unless they pile on a bunchs boring missions.
    Truethfully I just wanna see a new rayman adventure game with the rabbids as the enemy like it was hinted at during the Wii's launch.

    Overall I'm gonna guess its a GTA clone. What with GBA for Wii rumors floating about.
    Who wouldn't want to jump in on the bandwagon on a console already doing so well.

    I do like the rabbid's "Bwaaahh" noise though, something fun about that.
