London, United Kingdom - 24 MAY 2007 - Yesterday, Ubisoft, one of the world's largest video game publishers, announced Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 exclusively for the Wii and Nintendo DS systems. Those mischievous bunnies are back in a hilarious sequel, a party comedy game that is guaranteed to be even crazier and funnier than the first with even more insane games to play. Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 will push the envelope of the Wii gameplay experience by continuing to make innovative use of the Wii Remote. It will deliver fun, intuitive games that feature the wacky humor that Rayman and the Rabbids are known for. In development at Ubisoft's Paris studio, Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 is scheduled for a fall 2007 release.
"The first Rayman Raving Rabbids was a huge critical and commercial success worldwide," said John Parkes, director of marketing for Ubisoft. "Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 is poised to continue that success, as gamers can't seem to get enough of those crazy bunnies; they're just so popular!"
