Yeah, it does have that Ren & Stimpy or Cow & Chicken vibe. That could very easily be pushing some people away.
Now that you mention it, the characters do have a very David Feiss look about them!
I wonder what that guy is up to, last thing I knew he worked on was Open Season.

I feel like they turned Rayman into an idiot, to fit in better with the Rabbids. Maybe the 2nd and 3rd game changed the character, but in the first one Rayman was just the laid back guardian of the realm.

Which is of course why they seperated the two franchises.
In the rabbid games Rayman appeared in, he was the straight man. Putting the younger Origins Rayman with the rabbids wouldn't work because theres nothing for the two to play off of. Its not like they would anyways since Rabbids Go Home established incredibly straight laced humans as foils (which works far better).

Anyways kids tend to be more wide-eyed, rambunctious and wild. No one is born completely cool, laidback and with a strong sense of heroic justice.
They made Rayman a dope, because kids tend to be dopey and he's essentially a child in this game. The announced plotline is we find out how that dope becomes the hero found in later games.

Its not that hard.
EDIT- Right from the official site:
Yes, in the beginning Rayman was more into handing out free slaps than into world saving.
Strangely enough it is this very eventful story we are interested in: how did this uncontrollable individual and his grotesque companion become the heroes that we know?

The ESRB just rated Rayman 3D for 3DS, hopefully it's Rayman Origins for that platform.

Highly unlikely. If it was a port of Origins then it would still have Origins in the title. Most likely scenario is that it's a port of either 1, 2 or 3 (my money being on the latter).

Was really looking forward to this one. Hope it's still being made and going to be released.

If it is cancelled then fuck Ubi. They FINALLY announce a new Rayman game in the style of the original (and best) and we hear nothing since the announcement and now the sites relating to it are dead? No. Bad Ubi.

Who needs creativity and inspiration when 90% of your profits come from broken dance games for pre-teen girls?

Rayman Origins is currently being redesigned into Imagine Babyz Origins, a retail title for Wii, PS3, and 360 compatible with Motion Plus, Move, and Kinect. Navigate inside the womb and find your way out while playing through over 150 mini-games in this exciting prequel to Imagine Babyz.

Coming July 2011.

please die ubisoft.

you'd think they'd want michel ancel to create more masterpieces so they'd have more than just rayman 2 to port embarrassingly again and again to every other fucking platform. it would help them stop being a laughing stock.

Well Im trying to be shocked and annoyed but it's UBISOFT. I'm trying I really am. I'm sorry you guys are upset.

Oh UBISOFT, there was a time when you stood out from the dull and boring crowd. A time when I would have gladly given you my money without question.

This would have been the only Ubisoft game I bought since Assassin Creed 2. If it is truly cancelled, there won't be any Ubisoft game I want for the rest of this generation.

We should not jump to conclusions. Maybe they are just redesigning the websites as the game is still taking some time. Hopefully.

don't sites normally put up 'this website is down for redesign' notices when they do that.

Not if they plan on renaming it, reinventing it, or moving it to a new platform (3DS maybe?) They'd rather strike the old concept from history to avoid confusion.

surely if they were doing that they'd have the old urls just link to the new ones rather than killing them entirely, so as not to lose attention built up around the game when it was called origins by renaming it.

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

Guys, try ANY Ubisoft page. They all have the same language redirect error. Unless Ubisoft is cancelling everything there is nothing to worry about.

They just started to work on it again after they were afraid by the ultimate NeoGAF backlash :D
