Ubidays 08: Rayman Raving Rabbids TV Party revealed, use your butt to play


4:57 PM on 05.28.2008



[Update: Added the new trailer

The only game that wasn't on display during Ubidays in San Francisco was the new Rayman Raving Rabbids game. It's a shame it wasn't around, as I would have loved to get my ass on the game. Yes, my ass. Rayman Raving Rabids TV Party will now be using the Balance Board along with the Wiimote.

The Rabbids have invaded your TV. All the new games will in some way relate to stuff you would see on TV. Music videos, soap operas, reality shows, ads and more will be spoofed in the mini-game collection. 

During the Ubidays 2008 Paris presentation that wrapped up earlier today, they showed off one of the new mini-games that requires you to sit on the Balance Board. The mini-game is a snowboarding game, except instead of a snowboard, the Rabbid is riding on a Wildebeest. You use the Balance Board to steer your Wildebeest down the course and when you hit the jumps, you will use the Wiimote and Nunchuck combo to match the on screen directional prompts.

The other mini-game that was shown was a dancing game for four players. You will use the Wiimote and Nunchuk to match the on screen prompts as they scroll by (like Guitar Hero).

TV Party will have some minor online features such as being able to send pictures of your Rabbids to friends. After you've dressed up the Rabbids, you just aim your camera and take a shot. Rabbids don't like standing still so you'll have to smack them around a little to get them to stay still.  

Finally, the game is going to be bigger than ever with the new turn-based eight-player support. Nothing else was really revealed during the presentation and the press release (after the jump) is saying we won't hear much more until E3. I know I'm already looking forward to it, how about you?

Rayman Raving Rabbids TV Part officially announced, DS version coming

SAN FRANCISCO – May 28, 2008 – Today Ubisoft announced that Rayman Raving Rabbids(TM) TV Party will launch for the Wii(TM) system and Nintendo DS(TM) system this holiday season.

Following the tradition of Rayman Raving Rabbids titles showcasing fun and innovative use of the Wii controllers, Rayman Raving Rabbids TV Party will feature the Wii Balance Board(TM) accessory. The Rabbids plan to invade televisions worldwide, providing players with a variety of games and comedic exploits spoofing TV shows, pop culture and even advertisements.

“The Rayman Raving Rabbids titles have been an immense success, entertaining the world over,” said Yves Guillemot, president and chief executive officer, Ubisoft. “The inclusion of the Wii Balance Board into the game was a huge source of inspiration for our development team and I guarantee you will see the Wii Balance Board used in ways that will be surprisingly unexpected!”

To date, the Rayman titles have sold more than 22 million units worldwide with their unique ability to reach all ages and demographics through their family friendly, innovative game play mechanics.
