Ubi Soft has revealed some of the new enemy characters that will appear in Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc. The hoodblasters, the characters showcased in the Rayman 3 trailer, are the primary soldiers of the Dark Lum army, and though they carry weapons, they have very poor aim. Hoodbooms use a slightly different method for attacking Rayman--they rig various objects in the environment with explosives. The stumblebooms are similar to the hoodbooms in appearance, but they're perched atop a tall pair of stilts to avoid getting wet while walking through water. Grim keepers are guardians of critical areas within a level and will launch a group of smaller creatures named grims at Rayman when he gets too close. Lastly, there are the hoodoos, the magic users of the Dark Lum army.
Rayman 3 is scheduled for release on the GameCube, PlayStation 2, and Xbox in spring 2003.
