If some recent pictures are to be believed, a sequel to arguably the best 2D platformer in years is on the way. We’re talking about Rayman Origins of course and it looks like Ubisoft have a secret new game in the works.
The original Rayman Origins has been given a new lease of life thanks to its appearance on the PS Vita and in our opinion, it’s probably the best game on the system right now.
The game may have not had the best success in terms of overall sales, but there’s no doubt that Ubisoft’s gorgeous platformer has a cult following and it’s probably on this basis alone that it looks like a sequel is on the way.
A survey has been discovered online and it claims that a new Rayman Origins game is coming along with new features. Arkenford are the company behind the survey and they have teased that the new game will include things like castles, ghosts, vampires, greek gods and even dragons!
Another feature specifically mentioned is four player ‘drop in / drop out’ co-op, which you’ll probably be familiar with if you have played the excellent new Super Mario Bros game on the Wii. We just hope that these co-op features make their way to the Vita this time, as that was one area which was severely lacking aside from the campaign mode.
Dare we say it, but is this another planned E3 announcement that has now been leaked? After all the leaks regarding a new God of War game, we have a feeling that Sony may have been pushed into revealing the game early – The same result may happen again with the mysterious ‘PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale’ game.
Either way, we hope that this survey is real as a new Rayman Origins game is surely great news. Are you still playing the PS Vita version at the moment? Would you agree that it is the best 2D platformer since some of the classics on the SNES and Megadrive?
