Rayman and Rabbids to get 3DS outings

Ubisoft has revealed that its Rayman and Rabbids franchises are to make the leap into three dimensions with new instalments for the Nintendo 3DS.

The distinctive limbless hero Rayman will make his 3DS bow with Rayman 3D, an enhanced remake of the Dreamcast-era classic Rayman 2: The Great Escape.

Players can expect some classic platforming action controlled via the analogue Circle Pad, with the game having been overhauled with an updated learning curve, refurbished visuals and impressive 3D effects.

Meanwhile, the popular screaming Rabbids - who originally made their debut alongside Rayman in the 2006 Wii title Rayman: Raving Rabbids - will star in their first ever platform game, Rabbids 3D.

It will see the insane rabbit-like creatures attempting to take over the human world by travelling through time to change history.

Ubisoft's Yves Guillemot promised the games will "take advantage of the amazing innovations that Nintendo has designed with its new handheld platform".
