Ubisoft's limbless helicopter-head hero is appearing with a little more physical fanfare in Europe. The publisher is wrapping his gorgeous return to 2D, Rayman Origins
, in a Collector's Edition for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this November. Even the packaging itself is special.
The quality of the 50-page art book will likely match the visuals we've seen coming from the UbiArt framework (which integrates high-resolution illustrations and pairs them with a skeletal animation system), and the soundtrack will probably be described as "whimsical," but forget all that. The box itself folds into a cute diorama depicting mischief makers Rayman and Globox.
Ubisoft has confirmed to Joystiq that this edition of Rayman Origins
, currently listed at GBP 54.99 on Amazon UK
, is only coming to Europe -- soon to be the origin of quite a few imports, we imagine.
