Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 developer bio, screens, art, press release

GN 1.0 / 2.0


Those mischievous bunnies are back! In a hilarious sequel that is guaranteed to be even crazier and funnier than the first and with even more insane games to play. Let the party begin!

After having invaded the world of Rayman, the insane Rabbids have a new objective: THE INVASION OF PLANET EARTH! They have established their base in a nearby shopping mall and have just begun training for their nastiest scheme yet! As part of their training, the Rabbids must carry out several missions around the globe to prepare themselves for World Domination.

Rayman will now attempt to foil their plans by infiltrating their camp as one of them and hopefully stop this insanity!

Developed by Ubisoft, the game is scheduled for fall 2007.

My motto?

If you’re going to talk about it, you might as well just do it!

Which videogame kicked off your passion for gaming?

It was a mix of having an older brother who spent his time playing Tempest in arcades whilst he was meant to be babysitting me and the arrival of home consoles. I started with your Pong, Colecovision, Atari, and loved Super Sprint and all the arcade classics. If I was to say one game that really stands out, I think it would have to be Super Mario Bros on Nintendo that got me hooked, it was really the first game where I just didn’t want to go to bed until I finished the next bit and then the next bit and the next bit!!

Why do you think Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 is going to be the game of the year 2007?

Because the game is fun! With RR2 we are not trying to make a really complex strategy or tactical shooter game that requires that you to be hardcore to play it! Anyone whether you are 5 or 55, hardcore gamer or you have never played a game in your life can pick up the controls. You can play against each other on a level playing field, but most importantly you can laugh your head off whilst you’re doing some of the most insane and ridiculous things imaginable with bunnies!
