Critically beloved but still not the most popular kid in class, the funky-haired, no-limbed Rayman is still chugging along. Today, we learned he's getting a fourth game, which publisher Ubisoft announced will hit stores in time for the holidays.

In development at Ubisoft's Montpelier studio in France, the new installment in the platform-hopping series is being spearheaded by series creator Michel Ancel (who's also the man behind Peter Jackson's King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie and Beyond Good & Evil). Ubisoft has said that the game will arrive on "current and next-gen consoles," although it has yet to get specific on which ones it means. At any rate, we should have the first screens tomorrow, so watch this space.
