New Rayman goes the episodic route

Ubisoft’s Ubiart blog has posted a few details on what to expect from the new Rayman game which was announced just last week, Rayman Origins, among them a tidbit which reveals that the game will be available not in one big glorious download, but in chunks. It’s episodic, that is.

How many episodes there are in total, how often they’ll be released or how long each episode is goes unmentioned, however it is noted that “the size of each episode and its replayability must be important enough to make the players feel … fulfilled,” with the first one hopefully being a “biiiiiig” one.

The game’s expected on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network later this year. See here for the debut trailer, and here for some screenshots.
