Rayman Origins is an awesome, old school-style 2D platformer and the portable Nintendo 3DS version finally has a date. Even though the PS Vita version is still set for a February 14th launch, the 3DS version is scheduled for a March 20th, 2012 release.
We're not sure what's holding the 3DS version up, but just to tease you a bit more, Ubisoft has sent over some new screens and a Making Of trailer.
