A New Rayman Adventure!

August 24th, 2011 by Ange | No Comments | Leave a comment | Filed in Games |


Rayman Origins is heading your way very soon! If you haven’t already, check out the trailer!

In Origins, Rayman gamers will get the chance to play in both single player and multiplayer modes as Rayman, Glowbox and two Teensies, as they navigate through 60 different levels and 12 different environments collecting objects and fighting enemies as they go.

The story will explain a lot of niggling questions you might have about the franchise by looking at the very beginning of Rayman. It’s set in the Glade of Dreams, a realm created by a creature known as the Bubble Dreamer, whose nightmares are beginning to mess up the harmonious world by turning good things bad.  Rayman and gang are tasked with stopping what’s going on and returning things to order.

From what we’ve seen in the trailer we’re guessing there will be plenty of LOL moments to look forward to!

What do you think MANIACS? Add a comment or send feedback in to the Games Rant section of MANIA! Check out the latest issue of MANIA on sale now for our sneak peek at the game!

Kirby’s Epic Yarn is one of our favourite games this year. We love how he gets sucked into a world made of fabric and becomes like a piece of thread – we just never get tired of unzipping backgrounds and using our thread to swing up onto ledges, it’s fun to the MAX!

But now the time has come for us to finish the game as fast as we can because another AWSM Kirby game is on the horizon! From what we’ve seen in the trailer for the new game, which will just be called Kirby, it looks a lot like the classic Kirby games before Epic Yarn!

This time an alien spacecraft has crashed in the land of Pop Star and its pieces are scattered throughout the land. You Kirby have to find all the ships’ parts and help the aliens return to their home planet.

The game will feature a whole lot of new abilities for Kirby, like a sword, energy beam, whip and whirlwind made of leaves AND you’ll get ‘Super Abilities’ too which will be activated when Kirby inhales some types of enemy characters! Sounds great doesn’t it? We’re so excited for its release later this year! Check out the trailer now and keep reading MANIA for more Kirby updates!
