Rayman is joining the battle in Brawlhalla this November

Classic Ubisoft character ready to throw fists. Literally.

Ubisoft and developer Blue Mammoth games has announced that classic platforming character Rayman is to be added to crazy competitive fighter Brawlhalla in November.

Rayman, who made his gaming debut in the classic PlayStation and Sega Saturn title of 1995, will join the colourful misfits and freaks that make up Brawlhalla’s eclectic cast of characters. This news was met with trepidation by the community, some of whom were stoked to see the zero-limbed one joining the game, while others expressed disappointment that this appearance lessens the possibility that Rayman will be making an appearance in Nintendo’s upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Whichever way you slice it, it’s a fun crossover, Rayman remains a popular and recognisable character, even if he hasn’t quite cracked the public conciousness the way that someof his brethern have. You will be able to take him into battle November 6, when Rayman launches alongside the Xbox One and Nintendo Switch ports.

Brawlhalla is available now on PC and PS4.
