    Reserved or something.

    I may not be around proper, but I'm still with you all in spirit. Keep the dream going!

    Still with Rayman. He's one of Ubisoft's biggest characters and he's got that mascot appeal going for him. Ray fits like a glove and he takes no names.

    I think Rayman has the best chance of any character not owned by a Japanese company.

    I still support Rayman! Please Ubisoft, don't let whatever happened with the Wii U keep you guys from putting Rayman in.

    I was waiting for this to show up.

    Just like I'm waiting for Rayman to show up in Smash. Here's hoping.

    @SegaNintendoUbisoft I know you said you were waiting.

    Im still sad about the fake leak.


    Legends and Origins are my 2 favorite 2D platformers ever. Seeing the limbless wonder make the jump to smash would be amazing.

    I was actually in the middle of making a thread for Rayman myself. :p

    Oh well, we have a thread for Rayman, that's all that matters.

    Rayman is my third favorite video game franchise of all-time, so seeing fight with or against my first two favorites (Sonic and Mario) would be a dream come true.

    Here's hoping for the best Rayman fans!

    I actually downloaded the original Rayman on mobile today and tried it. Can't believe how much it evolved.

    Anyways, joing my #1 3rd party want's glade of dreams.
    (now imma go back to sleep and dream about a full blown modern 3D Rayman game and how beautiful it is)

    I've never played Rayman before, but I wouldn't be THAT opposed to his inclusion. If Ubisoft wants a character in Smash, I can't think of a better choice than Rayman anyway.

    Here's to hoping there's a good mix of classic and modern Rayman tracks for a Dream of Glades stage.

    Rayman 2 and 3 are full of good songs to be used.

    Honestly if there is another 3rd party to be added (that isn't a veteran *ahem*) it'd have to be Rayman. There's so much in his favor and nothing holding him back. Let's face it being a trophy in the game is a big ****ing deal in and of itself.

    I've always wanted Rayman in Smash, the fake Artsy Omni leak broke my heart. I support, he's in my top 5 for sure.

    Also, can we get a Raymolk costume please?

    Are you going to be doing an illustrated Rayman moveset too!?

    On another note, I'm really surprised AndreaAC hasn't showed up yet.

    Yeah, but not a "complete" one I suppose. I think most of the things from Origins/Legends are fine already, so I'll just fill in the blanks with a handful of moves :) .

    Yes please. Rayman deserves it. Ubisoft has always backed Nintendo with Rayman titles.

    As a long as the plunger gun makes it, I'll be fine /s

    Seriously though in Legends alone he has enough moves for a fully functioning Smash Bros kit.

    I can do that though. I'm a close friend of hers. :p

    She's been doing a lot of Rayman art though so I am a bit surprised she hasn't shown up yet.

    xD Hahahaha! Oh geez, I actually checked this place one time, but just like the first time I found the oldest Rayman thread years ago, there was barely anything to discuss, or well, it felt abandoned altogether. So, sorry about that!

    .3. And yup, NSG is right! ^u^ Thanks for the tagging!

    Just like NSG said, I have been doing a lot of Rayman stuff that I think the quantity now rivals with all the Ridley stuff I have posted in the boards, or comes close to it, I can't remember. Unfortunately none of it relates to him being in Smash because...reasons. It is more related to personal projects/stories or just doodles for fun. I guess I can post something I did yesterday, to show some of my improvement with him over some years:
    [​IMG]
    xD Of course, I don't feel that satisfied with it, but the change is pretty noticeable (and embarrassing :p).

    Definitely still support Rayman!

    I kind of wish that they'd make a sequel to Rayman Legends for the Switch instead of another version of Rayman Legends. I get why they'd prioritize remaking it (it's much easier and quicker, for starters), but seeing as I already have the Wii U version, I don't see a reason to double-dip. (kind of wish they'd bring that game that came out on mobile - Rayman Adventures, I think it was? - to consoles instead)

    No release has been announced yet.

    And remember, the official Rayman Facebook page said if Legends on Switch sells well, it could lead to a new game.

    I plan to buy Rayman Legends for Switch just for that reason. Though hopefully the "Definitive Edition" will have some extra goodies.

    I hate it when publishers effectively hold games hostage based on the success or failure of re-releases.

    On one hand, I get it - they want to make sure there's enough interest. On the other hand, a lot of people who want to see more of the series almost certainly have the game that they're re-releasing.

    The first example that comes to mind is Darkstalkers - there's certainly a lot of interest there, but because the re-releases of the games (re-releases that, unlike Devil May Cry 4, added nothing significant) didn't sell as well as they'd like, Capcom seems to be done with the series altogether.

    It can be rather annoying, I agree.

    Still, I just want to support this series in any way I can. Plus, I get to play a great game such as Rayman Legends on the go.

    My guess is September as that's the anniversary month of Rayman and altogether seems to be a hot month for Rayman games to release in. Just a guess though.

    I agree with this. As much as I love Rayman, I won't be buying the Switch version. What I don't get is why they're redoing Legends to test the waters of interest when that game, Origins, Jungle and Fiesta Run prove that people are willing to buy Rayman games--maybe not on one specific system, but still enough to get over 1 million sales. Plus, weren't the PS4 and XB1 versions already improvements over Wii U's? Yeah there was no touchscreen or 5-player co-op (with or without Murphy) but I recall them having better load times and stuff like that. If that's true, then the Switch would be the Even Better version of the Better Versions that came out years back. I know I'm ranting but I already have Legends so I'm not getting this.

    Started playing Beyond Good and Evil recently.

    You can definitely tell its something Michel Ancel made. The art style is very much like Rayman 2's, but still has a unique identity.

    NGL I would get Rayman 3 but I already decided a year ago no more eShop titles for this gen. So if it comes to Switch or Steam yes pls.

    :( Aw, that's the game I wanted Ubi had given for free in Ubi30 instead of Origins, I mean, not that I didn't enjoyed it (the environment art is SIMPLY GORGEOUS) but it didn't even give me the satisfaction of having "finished it", I wanted it to be over because of how stressed out it had me. R3 on the contrary, the moment I found it after 3 years of looking for it, had me enjoying it a lot and making me wish it had been more similar to R2 in some aspects. I guess I will have to look for the emulated version again.
