Rayman Origins coming to 3DS in March 2012

Ubisoft has announced that its acclaimed platform game Rayman Origins will be making its debut on Nintendo 3DS in March 2012.

The old-school action game, which won rave reviews on its home console release in November 2011, will be bringing its winning blend of hand-drawn artwork, vibrant worlds and pick-up-and-play fun to Nintendo's 3D-enabled handheld.

Created by acclaimed designer Michel Ancel, the game takes Rayman back to his roots in a side-scrolling 2D experience, brought to life with animation to rival a cartoon movie.

Fans can reacquaint themselves with Rayman, Globox and the Teensies as they move through dozens of levels, using abilities such as the HairlyCopter to overcome obstacles and beat bosses.

Rayman Origins is designed to be accessible to gamers of all levels of skill, from newcomers to long-time devotees of the beloved franchise.

The game is also set to be released on Sony's forthcoming PlayStation Vita portable console, which is being introduced in the UK next month.
