The original Rayman Jungle Run was one of our favorite games of last year, and easily in the top tier of running and platforming games available on Android. That title was a mobile tie-in to the Rayman Origins console game, and now that Rayman Legends is out, Ubisoft is back for another mobile installment. Rayman Fiesta Run builds on the original with new levels, new powers, and new gameplay elements.
Many of us waited with bated breath for Rayman Jungle Run to arrive in the Play Store late last month. Just when the wait was almost over, it was delayed. The game finally arrived a week later with all the platforming goodness you could ask for, so maybe the delay was worth it. All this precision jumping doesn't come free, though. Is the new Rayman worth a few dollars of your cash?
For everyone who was a deeply saddened, disappointed, or otherwise frustrated at the delayed launch of Ubisoft's Rayman Jungle Run, time to perk up. Wipe away those tears, oh dearest Rayman fan - the title is now official in the Play Store.
This side-scrolling platformer should be a nice throwback to old-school Rayman lovers, as it offers the same colorful scenery and gameplay style, along with new worlds and powers, supposedly-intuitive touch controls, and of course, everyone's favorite limbless little man.
Not so fast there, limbless flyboy. While Rayman Jungle Run was scheduled to arrive on the Play Store today, it looks like a delay has set back those plans and now the side-scroller based on the popular Ubisoft character will be launching on Thursday, September 27th. Not a huge delay, but one that's being made to "provide the best gaming experience."
Here's the full comment from the Ubisoft rep we spoke to about the delay:
Rayman Jungle Run will now be available on Google Play on Thursday September 27th @ 10am CET.
