Raving Rabbids 3 to Ultilize Balance Board?

By Shane Jury 30.04.2008 11

A recent Ubisoft teaser trailer has hinted at the possible existence of Rayman Raving Rabbids 3, with Wii Balance Board Functionality.

The trailer, seen below, does not hint at an official name or possible release for the title, but with Raving Rabbids 1 & 2 proving popular on Wii, a third in the franchise is likely.

Thanks to C3's iFrit for the tip.

Hints? I'd say confirms without doubt.

What I want to know is:

WHY?!

I think Ubisoft completely forgot how to put Rayman in a sentense without the verb "MINI-GAME WHORE"

Meh, can't really say for certain without confirmation of the title beforehand.

Anyway, I'm in two minds about this, on one hand; More Balance Board Support!Smilie On the other hand, more Fecking Mini-Games.Smilie

i want propper rayman, the last good one was number 3 hoodlum havoc, it was great!

I reckon that the game will utilise the balance board which is a good idea, but really i don't see why they don't just make a new rayman game, when rayman 4 was announced at E3 in 2006, I thought wow this looks like it could be a really good platformer, but now the rabbids games are a franchise in themselves.

If only the games were as good as the film clips.

I'm all for a balance board using Raving Rabbids game. Third parties need to either put effort into titles other than mini-game compilations or make a set of good mini-game compilations. Honestly I'd prefer the former, but it's more likely we'll see the later (assuming we see either).

I didn't think either of the first two were anywhere near spectacular, so I won't be getting this installment unless it becomes something great.

Ubisoft is just milking DS and the Wii in every possible way. Once they saw the Wii controller they developed the first Rabbit game and then another.

Now the balance board is shown and Yet another Rabbit game. It seems that Ubisoft only pays attention to the casual side of the Wii owners. Super Paper Mario and Super Mario Galaxy have both sold well over a million copies. This would suggest that platformers would sell on the Wii. But Ubisoft pays no attention to that. Yet when asked a question about whether X game developed for the Xbox 360 and PS3 will be developed for the Wii. They'll say that type of game is not for the Wii audience or the Wii audience will not purchase that type of game. Yet Resident Evil 4 the Wii Edition sold over a million units. Also Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles and Metroid Prime 3 each sold over a million copies.

What was Ubisoft's response? No Prince of Persia for the Wii. Instead there will be another Rabbits game.

Conclusion: The gaming industry is becoming too dependent on middleware to develop their games. This is why third parties have not stepped up to support the Wii. But the same third parties will spend time to build an engine for a version of their game to be on the DS. Weird.
( rant over)

Now I feel at peace with the world. Like the time when I made the mute boy talk and the blind man see.

Anyone think that guitar in the background is hinting at using the guitar hero controller?

A fail so epic, it may just be a win.

Rayman Ravings Rabbids was cool at the beginning but it's just getting annoying...

I think the balance board would work great with Raving Rabbits.

Hmmmmm could be great... probably wont if 2 was anything to go by. 1 was quite fun though.

My pictures wont appear so heres a smiley

STOP WITH THE RAYMAN MINIGAMES!!! two is too many rabbids, and minigames!
