Rayman Origins, the upcoming downloadable 2D platformer starring everybody's favourite limbless adventurer, is being "considered" for release on the 3DS and Wii.

That's according to an update on Ubisoft's Rayman Origins blog, which also confirms episode one of the new adventure series is due out for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles at the end of the year.

"Wii, PC, iPad, 3DS to be considered," says the blog.

During Ubisoft's packed E3 conference it revealed old mascot Rayman's comeback with a trailer you can see below.

Origins begins with the birth of Rayman. He eventually meets up with old pal Globox.

"Adventure, alone, with a friend, slaps, fairies, monsters, jokes, great music and many more surprises," reveals the blog.

Ubisoft bossman Yves Gullemot said a team of just five people have been working on the game, which has hand-drawn, cel-shaded 2D visuals and classic platforming gameplay.

Rayman's kept a low profile since the Raving Rabbids took over his franchise and then dumped him.
