Rayman Origins gets grim with ominous 10 Ways to Die trailer

As adorable and stunningly animated the upcoming Rayman Origins is, it’s got the dark specter of death looming over it. No we aren’t talking about the fact that it comes out November 15 when it’ll be overshadowed by a dozen AAA-budgeted titles. We’re talking about all the danger lurking around the world that Rayman and pals explore. So many things can (and definitely will) kill you during your playthorugh of the 2D throwback. Here are just some of the ways…

We expected to see death via spikes and blowfish, but getting punched by an old lady? We hardly expected that. If you watched to the end you’ll also notice that a demo for the title will be out November 9, so you’ll be able to give the lovely game a spin for free before you ignore it for Assassin’s Creed or Skyrim. We’re not saying you’re wrong to anticipate those other games more, we only ask you give Rayman a chance.
