Ubisoft announced it will keep the Rayman hype train running this March 21 with the release of an HD remastered version of Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc on Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network.

The high-definition remake will ship with enhanced audio and a faster framerate of 60 fps. It will also be supported with online leaderboards, the standard swath of trophies and achievements, and bonus content to boost game's estimated 10-15 hours of gameplay. Watch as Rayman parties in fancy HD style in the gameplay trailer.

Rayman 3 Hoodlum Havoc was originally released for consoles in 2003. It follows Rayman and best friend Globox as they cut through a Hoodlum army to stop the Black Lum Andre from bending the Heart of the World to his dirty, evil ways. It was the first game in the series to feature a scoring system wherein players could rack up points in a combo mode and submit their final tally at the end of the game for a spot in the worldwide rankings.

According to Ubisoft's earlier press release, Rayman 3 HD is a “fan-favorite” meant to compliment Rayman's full-on return in the recently released Rayman Origins. Read our review to learn why that is indeed cause for celebration.
