For the most part, getting around Rayman Origins' Glade of Dreams requires doing a fair amount of running and jumping around, just like other platformers out there. When going about on two feet won't do, Rayman and his pals rely on their special abilities along with some other forms of transport to overcome challenges.
Sometimes you'll be able to power up Rayman with some amusingly useful abilities. For example, the Dragon trailer shows Rayman can run all over the place while leaving a trail of fire at one point.
Rayman Origins goes on sale November 15 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Nintendo Wii. 3DS, Vita, and iOS versions of Origins are currently in the works.
