Rayman sequel announced

Superhero with no limbs set to star in a fourth adventure

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 %26 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.

After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
