Is it game enough to fill the Gerudo Valley-sized gap in our collective souls? Can it quench the unquenchable heart that lies still, awaiting the return of Link in Breath of the Wild 2?

Michele Ancel's critically acclaimed side-scrolling platformer, Rayman Origins, is finally making its way to PC, with Ubisoft confirming the game will hit retail at the end of March.

Interestingly, Joystiq points out that a bit of Twitter banter has revealed the the game will not be as DRM-heavy as many other Ubisoft games - something the French publisher has been scolded for being aggressive over in the past.
We're announcing Rayman Origins for PC right the hell now! Also, retail versions will have NO DRM. None, zero, zip. Ohemgee! - @NateHawke

Yes, Rayman Origins PC should be available on all e-shops including Steam; and no, it won't include any "complicated" DRM. - @RaymanGame
Of course it will still require online activation, and Steam has its own security features, so "no DRM" is still a bit of a stretch, but it's nice to hear they know there's a consumer issue with Ubi's DRM habits as they currently stand. You can check out our review of the game as played on Xbox 360, right here (9.2/10).

There's no denying the brilliance of Ubisoft's Michel Ancel; a true artist in the videogame medium who not only gave us crazy Rabbids and Beyond Good & Evil, but also a platform legend bested, arguably, by only Mario -- Rayman.

There's been a lull in true platform gaming of late, with only indie devs like Team Meat (Super Meat Boy) really harking back to the design of yesteryear, but Michel's Festivus present to the gaming industry and consumer-base at large, Rayman Origins, definitely fixes that.

Available on multiple platforms and serving up both a visual and classic platform control feast, Origins should keep you leaping, collecting and attacking for quite some time.
