Rayman gets his Groove on

Ubi Soft lines up hit soundtrack

It's hardly much of a coup to get some proper music on your game soundtrack these days, and more often than not a sign of laziness (EA TRAX, for instance), but nevertheless Ubi Soft are "stoked" (no less) to announce that Groove Armada's track "Madder" will "provide the sonic signature" for Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc.

Madder is from Groove Armada's "Lovebox" album, and will appear in promotional footage and the in-game running demo sequence. "Like Rayman himself, Groove Armada has a hip, edgy feel, combined with a healthy dose of fun," said Ubi's veepee of marketing Tony Kee, who sounds like he's down with the kids. We've never really thought of the upper-bodiless French platform hero with Plok-like attributes as hip or edgy, and we'll reserve judgement on the fun, but Groove Armada are certainly a big name to land.

Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc is due out later this month on GameCube and GBA, with PS2, Xbox and PC versions arriving in March.
