Iconic video game characters making cameo appearances in popular fighting games is all the rage right now. Indie hero Shovel Knight has popped up in multiple titles, Yooka-Laylee was recently announced for Brawlout and now Rayman is being added to Blue Mammoth's free-to-play platform fighter, Brawlhalla.
Following Ubisoft's recent acquisition of Blue Mammoth Games, this particular cameo isn't quite as surprising as the other above-mentioned ones. Rayman first started out in 1995, and has been overshadowed by the crazy Rabbids in recent years. It's nice to see the original Ubi mascot receive some love.
In case you missed it, in August, Ubisoft revealed it was bringing Brawlhalla to the Switch eShop on 6th November. Rayman will be released on this same date. The title itself draws inspiration from series like Super Smash Bros., as can be seen in the trailer above. The character roster currently features over 40 unique fighters and there's plenty of modes including single-player, co-op, online and local competitive. The game is easy to learn but hard to master.
