Rayman Origins 3DS release date, price announced

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

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.

    I don't think Origins is THAT great.. There are better platformers out there, like Donkey Kong Country Returns. And to be honest; I really didn't liked the music in Origins either..

    Cool, is this game on any other platform - just asking! Just wondering if its reached more ports than the Titanic did.

    the demo didnt blew me away... the 3D is barely noticeable (not even present in the loading screen) and i feel the camara is too far away. The game is great, no doubt about that, but i dont really see much of a reason besides being portable to pick this up on 3DS instead of consoles/PC with better graphics, because this game is really beatiful

    agree, the demo is okay, nothing amazing though. If you have a PS3/360 or even Wii, I would go with that version. You will get a better looking game and save yourself at least £10 in the process.
