Rayman Legends trailer makes it look as mad and brilliant as the original


Combining mechanically tight platforming with a rich bizarre art style (one level would see you flying mosquitoes through an oven, the next would have you swinging on ropes through an insect jungle) Rayman: Origins was an excellent game.

The latest trailer for its sequel does much to assuage worries that the designers may have calmed down in the interim.

Slapstick humour, varied characters, and not a lick of sense being made in the setting, this is very much a Rayman game.

It looks like a great deal of fun, too. This helps ease the pain of knowing that Rayman Legends is the reason that development of Beyond Good and Evil 2 has slowed to a crawl.

Rayman Legends is heading for a 3 September release date.
