Ubisoft have always known they’ve had a hit character on their hands since the debut of their mini/party-game collection Rayman Raving Rabbids, but they’ve apparently hit an even more graceful stride with the first full trailer for the Wii’s Rabbids Go Home above.

I can’t say I even fully grasp what the final game will entail — Ubisoft says it will solely consist of two Rabbids “pushing a shopping cart and causing mayhem” — but, second only to Valve’s “Meet The…” series, it’s so confidently stylized and effortlessly funny that I’m almost instantly willing to follow wherever they lead.

  1. The Rabbids’ goal makes more sense when you remember that, in many cultures (including France?) the shape in the moon is a rabbit, not a man.

    This could be fun — I’m imagining something like a very crazed version of Katamari Damacy.

    And if Rayman is nowhere to be found in this game, could that mean that he’s on his own again and ready to star in another game? I really, really, want a game that’s a true successor to the classic Rayman 2.
