New Rayman 3 details

Ubi Soft takes the wraps off some of the enemies that Rayman will encounter in his next adventure.


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.
