Rayman Origins 3DS release date, price announced

Michel Ancel's classic goes 3D

In what seems likely to be the match-up of the century, Rayman Origins will be coming to the Nintendo 3DS on June 5, Ubisoftannouncedtoday.

They also revealed that the game will be coming at a slightly lower price than is typical of a 3DS game at $29.99. Whereas a typical 3DS game usually costs about $39.99.

We're very much looking forward to giving this excellent platformer another spin with (hopefully) some great 3D effects. Rayman Origins sports some fantastic multi-tiered backgrounds and wonderful character animations that we're dying to see represented in 3D. Perhaps even more than the (also excellent) Vita version, this could be the game that reignites our love for Rayman Origins.

And if you haven't tried it yet, the 3DS version may be your best jumping-in point. It's a great showcase for why the platformer ruled gaming for two decades, along with all the advancements and accouterments we've come to expect from a top-tier modern game.

We recommend
