New Rayman goes 2D

Another out-of-the-blue but quite welcome announcement from Ubisoft today is Rayman Origins. The game’s headed up by Beyond Good & Evil and Rayman creator Michel Ancel himself who we remain hopeful is alternating between this and another little project.

As can be seen from the trailer above, this one’s looking deliriously beautiful.

Apparently only five people have worked on the title; a testament to Ubisoft’s UbiArts toolkit, according to CEO Yves Guillemot who introduced the game at the company’s press conference earlier today.

No dates or other specifics yet.
