Okay, this may be one of the best teaser trailers I have ever seen for a video game. Who knew that French people could be so clever?
With all the complaining I did yesterday about minigame collections on the Wii, I have to admit, the first Rayman Raving Rabbids for the Wii was pretty quality. All the games kept me entertained and, most importantly, they were genuinely funny. Seriously, try not to at least chuckle after having to slap a schoolboy rabbid in the face with your Wiimote. Like old people falling down on America’s Funniest Home Videos, it’s always funny.
Based on this trailer, the same kind of sick humor seems to be continuing in Rayman Raving Rabbids 2, coming out by the end of this year for only the Wii and Nintendo DS (the original game was weirdly released on PlayStation 2 and Xbox360 as well). While I do miss the traditional Rayman platformers (ah, Rayman 2: The Great Escape, thanks for the memories), passing the time with these hilariously cute rabbids is definitely fine by me.
Hit the jump for a couple of first screens, including one that looks to poke fun at the (countless) obnoxious people that talk on their cell phones in a movie theater. That alone makes me love this game already.
