After delays and some mystery, we finally have the North American release date for Rayman Origins: 5th June. That's three days before it arrives in Europe, and less than three weeks away for those who've been impatiently awaiting its arrival.

Ubisoft has also confirmed the price for the U.S., which is a rather attractive $29.99, less than a standard new release on 3DS. This may be to accommodate for the delayed launch and the fact that the title has been available on Wii for a number of months, but it's certainly good news for those considering taking the plunge. You'll apparently be able to share your game progress with others via StreetPass, and if you're currently unsure you can also try the free demo on the eShop.

There's also a launch trailer; a good day for Rayman enthusiasts who own a 3DS.
