Original Rayman given 3DS eShop release date

Plus Mega Man X2 on Wii Virtual Console.

The original Rayman will be available to download from the 3DS eShop this Thursday, Nintendo has announced.

Ubisoft's first Rayman platformer launched on PlayStation 1 in 1995 before receiving a Game Boy Color port in 2000.

It's yours to download this week for £4.50/€5.

Then there's Mega Man X2, originally launched on the SNES and dusted off for a new lease of life on the Wii Virtual Console. It costs 800 Wii Points (about £5.60).

Also on 3DS, Sweet Memories Blackjack (£3.60/€4), a 3D card game wrapped in a Japanese story about a young girl named Kasumi. The more you play blackjack, the cosier your friendship becomes.
