3DS Rabbids Elaborated

Posted by Zach Kaplan

Ubisoft tells the wacky facts on Travel in Time 3D

Last week we reported on Rabbids Travel in Time 3D, a side-scrolling take on the Raving Rabbids' mini-gaming time-travelling exploits on Wii, and now Ubisoft has revealed more information on the upcoming title.

Due for release during the first quarter of 2011, Rabbids Travel in Time 3D features 60 levels over four different time periods in the Rabbids' first platforming adventure. You can unlock figurines of your favourite characters and dress the Rabbids up in over 40 historical costumes including Napoleon and the Three Musketeers. The game will also feature three unique game modes: story, time attack and challenge.

Additionally, Ubisoft describes the game as 2-D / 3-D sidescrolling; whether that means that we can look forward to some cleverly designed levels that switch between the two perspectives or if they will only visually extend into 3D has yet to be seen. You can read the full press release below.

The Rabbids are about to change the course of human history in their first platform adventure!

I played this and was actually really disappointed with it - from the level I played (first screenshots on the left) it just appeared to be a totally run-of-the-mill 2D platformer that could have been done on GBA, let alone DS.I hope to be proven wrong but we'll see!

I'm really looking forward to 3D rendered 2D platformers on the 3DS.... but I don't think this is what I was thinking of. I guess I'll wait for the next New SMB, Kirby, Donkey Kong or even Sonic or, one can hope, something else as insanely brilliant as Henry Hatsworth.

That's a shame J. Guess we'll just have to hope that it comes along before release.

OH SURE! 3DS gets a PLATFORMER, but the Wii only gets a Katamari wanna-be and mini-games. Lame!

Finally the rabbids are in another game other then the stupid minigames.
Go Rabbids!



Kyloctopus said:

Cool but it will just be like rabbids go home. There will be humour, and cool levels but then the game repeats itself. Think about it 15 levels per time period.
PS the minigames are not stupid they have some of the best minigames I've ever played




Have u seen some of the play footage. Its a bit like NSMB from what I've seen. Highly competent. Need a revw though. Thank frack its not a mini game comp

Hmmm... not sure if I trust Ubisoft with a platformer. Though maybe I'm forgetting something? At least it looks like a new experience, rather than a port or rehash.
