Ubisoft's retro-fabulous 2D platformer Rayman Origins is no longer a downloadable game, as originally announced at E3 2010, according to the latest issue of Game Informer.

According to a NeoGAF summary of a preview feature in the new issue, it will now be released later this year as a full retail title on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Other tidbits from the article include news that the game will feature four-way local co-op play. Online isn't mentioned.

That said, the levels are being designed with both single and multiplayer in mind so apparently you won't suffer if playing alone.

Veteran Ubisoft creative Michel Ancel notes that the plan is to make the game more accessible than the original Rayman but still offer seasoned gamers a challenge via speed-runs and collectibles.
