Some people may miss Sam Fisher, and others frequently ask for Rayman’s return. Wish granted, at least in regards to the character created by Michel Ancel. Ubisoft has announced Rayman Mini, a title that is being developed exclusively for the Apple Arcade, the new service dedicated to mobile video games from the Apple company.
Through a press release, the company has revealed that the title is developed by Ubisoft Montpellier in collaboration with Pastagames. The adventure will pose a legendary journey in which Rayman must deal with a small problem. You are now a tiny being, so you will have to find a way to undo the spell.
The character will star in a journey that will take him to a “macro photography universe in which he will meet great allies and of course epic enemies he will have to defeat.” The new Ubisoft game has 48 levels that promise to be very varied.
The statement refers to “an amazing river, a spider nest and a rabbit hole.” In addition, Rayman will not be the only playable character, as he will have the option to explore the world with Barbara and Glotox.
The costumes will allow us to customize the characters so that we can unlock new ones as we progress through the game. Rayman Mini will have cross progression, available on all iOS devices. They have also confirmed that they will expand the game with new content throughout the year.
Apple Arcade will offer a wide range of video games from many of the usual companies in the sector such as Konami, Sega, Disney, Capcom, Annapurna Interactive, WayForward, Skybound, Platinum Games, Gameloft and many more.
In Apple’s Keynote we have been able to see titles such as Shinsekai: Into the Depths from Capcom, Frogger from Konami, and Sayonara Wild Hearts from Annapurna Interactive, among others, a title that will also come to PC and consoles.
Apple Arcade is an exclusive subscription service. In total, more than 100 video games are available for $4.99 euros per month. The new commitment to Apple video games will start on September 19. We can enjoy the entire catalog of games without the need for an internet connection.
A family plan for up to 5 members will be made available to users while maintaining the same price, so that members of the same Apple Arcade group of 5 users would only pay $1 per month. In addition, once they launch the service, they will offer a first month of free trial.
All of the titles will be offered in their full version, with full support of free updates and no purchases within the games, thus discarding a business model as widespread in mobile phones as the free to play with microtransactions.
Finally, full compatibility with third-party control commands has also been confirmed, which considerably increases the gaming options on different iOS devices with a large list of available video games.
