Next month's Rayman looks great, I'll probably never play it


Coming December 3 to little fanfare

People have said nothing but good things about Rayman Jungle Run and the third mobile Rayman game using the same assets (after Fiesta Run), Rayman Adventures, looks great. And while Jungle Run was limited as an endless runner (though, again, still pretty beloved), this one has full movement and exploratory platforming.

But it's on phones and the like -- coming out December 3, just announced -- so I'll probably skip it. I don't know why Rayman has been consigned to mobile; I suppose Rayman Legends didn't perform well enough, though Ubisoft kind of chopped its legs off with the whole Wii U exclusive/not-exclusive debacle around that release (I still hate the mosquito on non-Wii U consoles). Oh well. We had Origins, we had Legends -- great 2D platformers aren't too common these days. I'd still like to see Nintendo have another crack, but the company seems content with 3D or 3D on a 2D plane.

Something of a sad 20 year anniversary for Rayman, but the game might well be great and it's just me having a sad for not wanting to keep up with the times and game on my mobile. Though Apple TV owners can play the thing right now. Else-wise, December 3 for Android, iPad, and iPhone.
