SDCC: Have a cute trailer for Rayman Origins

2D platformers fell out of favor with publishers a long time ago, which is why titles like Rayman Origins make me happy. Here's a shamelessly old school platformer, and it's looking damn sexy. 

This new trailer shows off some of the accolades won at E3, and invents a few of its own. I'd say it deserves them from what we've seen thus far.
