THE BUZZ: Ubisoft has announced today, right on the heels of their recent Rayman: Origins release, that Spring of 2012 will see a HD remake of Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc released onto XBLA and PSN. Ubisoft also mentioned the game will run at a full 60 frames per second and that they estimate there should be 15 to 20 hours worth of game play in the download.

EGM’s TAKE: The big question that comes up with this announcement is of course going to be price. To release a full game of that length, I wouldn’t be surprised if this pushed into the $20 range, which is a lot for a download. But considering I’m sure the game was more than twice that in its original release back in 2003 on Xbox, PS2, and PC, it’ll still be a worthwhile deal if they include some new features. If it’s just a straight HD port though, this may seem like too much of a quick cash dash trying to capitalize on the remake trend lately and nostalgia for folks who played the original. Interesting though that Ubisoft chose Rayman 3 to remake when, and I know I speak for many on the EGM crew, Rayman 2 is widely considered the pinnacle of the series.

What do you folks think of this announcement? What is your favorite chapter in the Rayman series? Are you fans of all these remake releases lately (Resident Evil, ICO/Shadow of the Colossus, God of War, and Halo just to name a few)? Is making this a downloadable title the way to go? Let us know your thoughts with comments below!
