Rayman Origins Vita – Specific Features and Screenshots Revealed, No Multiplayer

January 26, 2012Written by Nick Michetti

Ubisoft has revealed two new features of the PlayStation Vita version of its 2D platformer with animated-style graphics, Rayman Origins. Unfortunately, they also revealed that a feature in the console version won’t make it into the Vita version of the game.

Before getting into the features, Ubisoft PR Specialist Alex Monney announced on the PlayStation Blog that all of the beauty of the animation style and frantic gameplay from the PS3 version made it into the Vita version fully intact.

The first new feature is that the game has a new zoom feature, accessible by pinching the touch screen. The zoom enables players to better see the level of detail in the animation, as well as find hidden secrets.

The second new feature is Ghost Mode, where players can challenge each other’s ghosts in speed runs for the best times.

Unfortunately, though, Monney also confirmed in the comments that multiplayer is not included in the game:

No multiplayer in the Vita version. However, the Ghost Mode will definitely let you connect with your friends for some Rayman Origins wackiness.
