Rayman Hits 3DS VC in Europe Next Week

Posted by James Newton

Gear up for Origins

With a Rayman Origins demo last week and Rayman on 3DS Virtual Console next week — not to mention a proper look at Rayman Legends for Wii U the week after — Ubisoft's hero is working harder than he has done in years.

Rayman's Game Boy Color adventure lands in Europe next Thursday for £4.50, and is only the second VC title from Ubisoft after Prince of Persia earlier this year.

Will you be picking up the helicopter-haired hero's GBC outing?

im pretty sure we are getting it also next week,if you type rayman in the search,you will find it and it says coming soon
we will also get 99 seconds



Firejonie said:

@DarkEdi Yes, the story and gameplay is based off the original Rayman ( DSi version) but the level design is different.



Rensch said:

I wanna check out the DSi port of the PSX game and this one as well. This seems to be an entirely different game.



tertium_quid said:

I already have the DSi port of Rayman. Does anyone know if there is a reason for me to buy this one?

HEY UBISOFT HOW BOUT YOU PORT RAYMAN 3?!?? THAT GAME IS SO UNDERATTED ITS NOT EVEN FAIR! Rage face I was so dissapointed that rayman 2 was ported to the 3ds



Chris720 said:

I remember playing this game when I was like 5 or 6 and completing it in about a week... doubt I could do that now. I think I still have the cartridge for it somewhere, shame I don't have a GBC any more though to actually play it...

But this will be a welcome addition to my collection!



naut said:

Very excited--This game was one of the highlights of my childhood. Come on NA release!



JustAnotherUser said:

Can't wait for this.
Even though I have the DSiware version of Rayman I'll be buying this anyway.
Hopefully they will release Rayman 2 forever soon as well.



GeminiSaint said:

Since I already have the (superior) DSiWare port of Rayman 1, I'm going to pass on this one.



welsh_gamer said:

Defintley getting this one. I'm sure a lot of people missed out on this during the GBC era.



TheDreamingHawk said:

This game is on the NA eshop's search section, so chances are it will release everywhere next week. Never played rayman, so I can give this a shot.



Bass_X0 said:

Kirby's Block Ball was on the eshop in America for two weeks before it was released.



pokeDrago said:

Probably coming to NA very soon, for the reason DreamingHawk gave.

Hope to be surprised with Wario Land next week, but Rayman is no slouch either. Either one would be good with me.



TheDreamingHawk said:

@pokeDrago It seems more likely to happen at E3. There ARE 5 titles already planned for that thursday (4 of them being DSIware.)

@Bass_X0 But this is ubisoft, not Nintendo. It's up to ubisoft what to do for this game.



pokeDrago said:

4 DSiWare titles which Thursday? What?!?

Either way, if they don't have 3DSWare, then they have a VC game to release (as stupid as that logic is), so I wouldn't be worried. A special game announced at E3 wouldn't surprise me. I'm actually banking on Kirby Tilt n Tumble: both for Kirby's 20th, and for being a special release for the gyro controls. It makes sense to me... :/



CommanderAudio said:

Well I don't care about this. They could just put a black screen on the whole game, then sell it for 12 dollars and it'd still be better than the Rayman Origins 3DS port.



Fabian said:

i really hope tfor you guys this game cames to US too but i doubt it because Prince of Persia is out in Europe for months and it doesen´t seem like there are any plans to bring it over. But good luck (happy to live in Europe^^)



WarioFan63 said:

@TheDreamingHawk I only see 2 DSiWares for the E3 week Thursday

@Fabian It's already been said in these comments but this game's already listed in the US eshop as Coming Soon so yeah we're definitely getting it over here too sometime.



Knuckles said:

@NintendoLife I read on Thursdays NA update, someone found Rayman [GBC] as coming soon when you type in rayman in the search box. I've tested it and can attest its true



Tsuchinoko said:

Japan doesn't usually get the Ubisoft games. I've never played Rayman, but I heard its fun. I highly doubt we'll get this or Prince of Persia.



Nintenbro said:

@Tsuchinoko, we still haven't recieved Prince of Persia here in the United States either, and it's beginning to really piss me off. Damn you Ubisoft or Nintendo, who ever is responsible for this. Give us Prince of Persia on the SNES VC already! Why the hell would anyone desire to own any other port!? Forgotten Sands was purely false advertisement. I'm so glad I read into it, before I ordered a copy from Amazon. My anger would've doubled.



Tsuchinoko said:

@G4L Well, I was just stating a fact. Not really upset, but I actually think its strange that NA didn't get that game. Japan not getting isn't nearly as odd as NA not getting it.



Fuzzy said:

Rahman Origins felt too slow on the 3DS.

Will be picking this up though.



ZurrrrBlattTron said:

I know buts that's not good enough for me >_< raynman 2 is on nearly every system from n64 to current gen nd when I heard the 3ds was getting a rayman 3D I suspected rayman 3 nd I currently don't have a ps3 or xbox which kills it even more :I @Kyloctopus



GeminiSaint said:

@33, Legend Marioid:
The DSiWare version of Rayman is a near pixel perfect port of the original PS1 game. Sure, the screen is just a little smaller and the difficulty is a bit toned down mainly because you have a few more hit points. Otherwise, it's the exact same game as on the PS1.

oh man it's very difficult and frustrating!
I couldn't finish the 2nd stage at all!
