Nintendo is famous for its first party games. Any system of theirs will sell millions just by announcing a new Zelda game, so the industry held its breath to see how third party games would fare on the Wii. At release in 2006, one of the best-selling games was Rayman Raving Rabbids. Ubisoft followed the success by having the Rabbids invade Earth in Rayman Raving Rabbids 2.
Both games are fantastic party games, but Raving Rabbids may be most well known for its crazy commercials. Some have been just off the wall funny like “Bunnies don’t milk cows,” others poke fun at current events like “Bunnies can’t infiltrate Games Convention,” and others play off holidays like Halloween and Bastille Day.
Ubisoft has now put out a new commercial that shows what happens when a Rabbid gets hold of the new Wii Balance Board. This video has stirred up many gamers’ hopes for a Rayman Raving Rabbids 3, but is a new rabbids really in the works or is this video just a clever shout out to remind everyone of those crazy creatures?
If a new Rayman game is indeed in the works and will take advantage of the new Wii Balance Board, I’d like to suggest a balance sobriety test. Lets see how wild your next gaming party really gets.
