uPlay video portal drops pre-Ubidays hints

Ubisoft unwraps new microsite ahead of next week's Paris showcase, which contains teasers about its upcoming lineup, including a possible Wii Balance Board Rayman Rabbids game.

Ubisoft's second annual Ubidays showcase is hitting the Louvre museum in Paris next week. In preparation for the megastudio's event, it's launched a new video portal called uPlay, to showcase its upcoming lineup.

The portal will officially launch on May 29, during the second day of Ubidays, but there are six videos already available, including one with JC Guyot, creative director on the new Prince of Persia game, who unveils a speed drawing of one of the prince's supporting character, Elika. There's also a link to a locked trailer that, while pixelated, also appears to be Prince of Persia related.

Far Cry 2 producer L.P. features in a short welcome video to tell fans the FC2 development team will be at Ubidays and that the game "might be on display and, actually, it might even be playable on different platforms."

Other videos include the quirky Rabbids Secrets to Health and Happiness, starring one of those pesky rabbids and the Wii Balance Board--hinting at a possible Rayman game in development for the Wii--while Dedication and Responsibility focus on snowboarding, which is no doubt a nod to Ubisoft's upcoming Shaun White Snowboarding game.

A Tom Clancy's EndWar trailer entitled The Power of the Voice, promotes the fact that the game will be "playable entirely with voice command" and Invitation features Gearbox Software president Randy Pitchford, who will show a new trailer and gameplay footage from Brothers In Arms Hell's Highway at Ubidays.

In addition to the trailers, the "opening conference will be broadcast live on www.uplay.com on Wednesday May 28 at 7:00 p.m. Paris time [6:00 p.m. GMT, 10:00 a.m. PT]," according to a statement from the publisher.

Stay tuned to GameSpot for all our coverage from Ubidays on May 28 and May 29.

"including a possible Wii Balance Board Rayman Rabbids game." IGN released an official trailer for that a while ago.

Raving Rabbids was good. But they can do better. Raving Rabbids should have all of the mini-games linked together via action adventure.

Actually there is a Rayman Raving Rabbids 3 coming to the Wii with Balance Board support. We're already taking preorders on it at Gamestop.
