According to this month’s issue of Game Informer, Rayman Origins, Ubisoft’s shock E3 2010 announcement, is now set for a full retail release and is said to becoming this holiday.
Originally announced to be a downloadable title at last year’s Ubisoft E3 press conference, thanks to details posted on NeoGAF it now appears as if Rayman’s return will make it to the big leagues as Michel Ancel and his team now ready their title for a full retail release.
With 4 player local co-op for the masses – no mention of online co-op yet though – Ubisoft Montpellier state that they're not only looking to offer something for every type of platform gamer – collectibles, speed-runs, etc – but that they’re looking to make a more accessible experience this time around, due to the small numbers of gamers that completed the original.
Rayman Origins will include “I Dare You” challenges where you can wager Lums – the in-game currency – on whether you can perform complex acrobatic chains and Lums can be spent on power-ups and health too.
Expect Rayman Origins holiday 2011 then and expect to see more at E3 if this rings true.
