Rayman is confirmed to make an appearance in Mario + Rabbids: sparks of hope, but if revived in its own game, it has the potential to become one of the best modern 3D platformers. Maybe the partnership with Nintendo will lead to a full Mario/Rayman crossover or a reboot of some kind because rayman the games were strong and praised by gamers and critics alike.
