Rayman Origins was released last fall for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii smack in the middle of ReleaseGate 2011. I wrote a glowing review of the PS3 version and DualShockers named it our Best Platformer of 2011. Now the game is getting two more releases, this time on handhelds.
Rayman will splash onto the PlayStation Vita alongside the first edition preorder bundle on February 15, one week before the console hits store shelves. Then on March 20 he’ll be bringin’ it to the Nintendo 3DS for a little 3D action. Europe will see the 3DS version of Rayman on March 16.
I can’t recommend you pick up this game enough; it’s brilliant, challenging without being frustrating, and just plain fun.
