Another game I'll buy when I buy a 3DS.

Getting to be quite a few now.

"The Wii Classic"? This seems like some sort of Nintendo propaganda, I don't think they can have sold many on the Wii at this stage. I'd go so far as to guess the Vita version outsold the Wii.

As for the game itself, I have no doubt the game will be just as good on the 3DS as any other platform. Being on a handheld didn't damage the game on the Vita and perhaps whatever 3D they add will make up for the smaller screen and resolution.

Unfortunately the screen is just too small to make good use of the art, everything's a tad too small, and the bottom screen is not used very well. I think they just ported over the Vita version or something. I'd still get it if you don't have the other systems though (not likely).

This reminded me, again, that I need to play more Rayman Origins. I got it for Christmas for the Xbox 360 but still haven't beaten it.

man that chase level in the demo ... I cannot beat it ... /feelslikeidiot

Downloading the demo now, just to see how it looks ...

Posted by AndrewB

The 3D is kind of cool, but the scaled-down assets make me want to play it on any other system. The art is just too good.

Posted by BatmanBatman

yep is not terrible or anything , but tiny and a little blurry .. 3D's cool though ...

Posted by GunstarRed

Just played the demo. Rayman is like the teeniest-tiniest thing ever, the visuals area a bit misty also. Really does seem like a game you should play on the consoles.

How is the 3D in it?

Posted by Rodiard

Is it though?

Posted by GunstarRed

@Moncole: Quite minimal, nothing much of any note. Just fireflies in the foreground and bits and pieces of scenery, quite similar to what they did with that bad Rabbids platformer.

Posted by CrashTanuki

I'd rather play this on Vita.

Posted by OllyOxenFree

Yep, screen is too small for all of the art which just results in a blurry mess. Play on another platform if you can. Also, the audio is heavily compressed.

Posted by Bulby33

I played the demo and man... I didn't think it looked very good. It was very blurry. Did not look sharp.

Posted by ptys

That lower screen just never gets used does it.

P.S. that was rhetorical.

Edited by EthanML

"Exclusive 3DS features!"

>Proceeds to show what is barely a map on the entire bottom screen.

This game is the most beautiful thing I've seen in years, play it on a fittingly beautiful HD display.

Posted by Blargonaut

I agree with everyone, it's just way too small on the 3DS. The 3D effect is also minimal and kinda crappy...I say this as a fan of 3D. There are plenty of better games that were designed for the 3DS from the ground up, like Mutant Mudds and Mighty Switch Force. SKIP

Posted by Hot_Karl

I don't think you get the right to the term "classic" unless you're at least a decade old. Sorry.

Posted by Yadilie

So, take an amazing looking game and put it on the shittiest screen with an absolutely terrible resolution. That'll work out well.

Posted by RE_Player1

I have it on Vita and PC and the game is gorgeous. I just played the demo up on the eshop and honestly it looks like shit on the 3DS. If you want this game get it on the HD consoles, PC or even the Vita but don't get it on the 3DS unless that us your only option.

Posted by mewarmo990

Hope it does okay on the 3DS. The price for the console version dropped some 30% within weeks of release... not a good sign.

Posted by Dark_Lord_Spam

Damn. I still need to get this game.

Posted by BBQBram

I'm getting this anyay, I'll get the Vita version when I eventually own a Vita.

Posted by nick_verissimo

Played the demo last night and it didn't feel all that great. It is on sale this weekend on steam this weekend though!

Posted by phantomzxro

Wow sad to hear so many people say the 3ds version is not so hot. Well i can at least confirm that the vita version is still very gorgeous, In fact I'm surprised to say it's my favorite vita game right now.

Posted by MeatSim

I don't think the small screens will do the art of this game any justice.

Posted by ZRLeigh

I played the demo on 3DS and was disappointed by it. Great game on other formats though!

Posted by BasketSnake

Played the 3ds demo after reading all the comments. I played it about one minute before shutting it down....no thanks. Shame, I had planned on buying it.

Posted by liako21

i was waiting to play this for the first time on the 3ds. after playing the demo im not so impressed with it either.....steam here i come!

Posted by LordAndrew

Ubisoft sucks at making 3DS trailers. They put this exact same video on the eShop. 2D only, with the top screen action barely visible. Thanks for nothing, Ubisoft. I also downloaded the demo, but I'm not going to try out any of those until someone finds a way around the restriction on number of uses.

Posted by lclay

I just don't know why you'd play this on the 3DS over any other platform.

I highly doubt that. The disparity between the amount of Wiis sold and the amount of Vitas sold pretty much guarantees that Rayman Origins sold way more units on the Wii than on the Vita.

Posted by motang

If this is avaliable on eShop I will double dip.

Posted by Eyz

doesn't look as epic as its HD counterpart.

On a more important matter: When are they gonna show more of/release Rayman Legends??

Posted by NorseDudeTR
@thatdutchguy Yup. Looks wrong on that tiny screen. Played the demo, and would like to play it on a real screen.
Posted by Bloodfarts

I found the 3D to be pretty lacking. Didn't add much for me and I found the window for the 3D to work in to be pretty small. The gameplay was still really solid. I played the chase level upwards of 30 times and didn't beat it. But the fact that I wanted to keep going was a good sign to me.

Posted by nickux

Just thinking about the last level of this level gives me tremors. Bested this game on Vita and, while it's beautiful, didn't think the platforming was as satisfying as, say, a Mario or even Super Meat Boy.

Posted by jasondesante

everyone was dissing this game but then i played the demo, and i love it. the 3d is subtle but its obviously a noticable difference from 2d. I like it a lot. Seems like a game i might get when it goes down in price.

You get 30 plays of a 3DS demo from the eShop ... if you're playing a demo more than that buy the game.
