    The new Rayman game was announced back at E3 for the two HD consoles, PS3 and Xbox 360. It's a high definition 2D platformer that hopes to go back to Rayman's original gameplay style. Unfortunately, no word was said of it coming to any of the other consoles or handhelds. But now, we have news that Ubisoft is considering bringing the game to other platforms, specific ones listed in fact. The official statement-

    This is good news for people who don't own a PS3 or 360, and considering Rayman's history of being a widely available multiplatform series, it's not unwise to assume these "considerations" are actually quite possible. Most interesting is probably the possibility of a 3DS version, of which the system isn't out yet and doesn't have a release date. Clearly though, Rayman Origins will be available on PS3 and Xbox 360 first. At the very least, a PC version would be a possibility since it can replicate the HD visuals perfectly without downscaling the resolution.

    Rayman Origins is apparently to be an episodic downloadable game for the two HD system's download services. The first part will be released Christmas 2010, and the rest next year in 2011. Also interesting to note is that a development kit for the game will be released as open source in 2011. According to Ubisoft, the software will have a level and character editor. Kind of similar to the old Rayman designer program released for the original Rayman PC game back in the 90's. [/p]
    And if you missed the E3 trailer for the HD systems, have another look-
    This information was taken from Ubisoft's official FAQ for the game-

    I LOVED the original Rayman, the video made me cry, but the fact that it will be out for PC made me:

    Don't take it too seriously, they said considering, not confirmed.

    It'd be cool to see this game on other platforms, but it'd detract from the awesome art style to see it in anything but HD goodness, in my opinion.

    I would love to see it on the Wii (or preferably the 3DS).

    But I just say that because I'm a fanboy, so you know.

    I seriously hope for a PC release, I played the original to death too many times to remember.

    I lost the original's CD a couple of years ago [​IMG]

    I've still got the original DOS Rayman from 1995 on CD, and STILL play it on dosbox. It's actually probably my favorite version. I've also got Rayman 2 and 3 on PC too, which also kick ass. I just stopped playing Rayman altogether once they infested the franchise with Rabbids, but this kicked my interest back in. Really hoping for a PC port, along with the other considerations. They've always made Rayman games multiplatform and released them on every system they could. Hope this is the same. [​IMG]

    Well, whatever consoles they put it on.. I'm just happy they're bringing the good ol' Rayman back.
