So far with regards to the Rayman franchise mobile devices have experienced several runners to savor. However, when it comes to a real Rayman game, like we’ve been used to on other platforms, there was not anything readily available for mobile gamers to experience. That will be changing in a few days apparently.
The official Rayman Twitter account posted a really interesting tweet that talks about a retro Rayman game making the journey to cellular devices next week. This really is pretty awesome news as the original Rayman would be a great platformer. The problem, however, is that this game was pretty hardcore and would be a tough one to beat using hardware controls. Using touchscreen controls will be twice the task. This is, of course, if there is not controller support. There’s ways around that problem as well.

Unfortunately we do not know which version of the original Rayman this mobile one will depend on. Regardless, it will likely be great to really have a real Rayman game to play. It will likely be launching onto cellular devices next week, that likely means February 18th, 2016 since many major releases happen on Thursdays. Also because it says so within the image within the tweet. We’ll post an update once it becomes available.
