The award-winning team of artists, designers and composers from Origins has also returned with an advanced UbiArt engine to include multi-dimension gameplay elements, an improved lighting system and updated game rendering that elevate Rayman’s graphics to the next level.
To be honest I knew about this a few weeks ago so it was a badly hidden secret. I'll certainly be picking this version up cause of the Vita's lovely Dpad and playing 2D gaems on the Vita is fantastic because of the sexy screen.
