I have some things to say about the early Rayman 4 develepment. First lets start with the name of the game. While the game was at 1st in development it was acually going to be called Rayman 4 but that never saw the light of day - no trailer or screenshots for that version. Then after that got canceled came Rayman Raving Rabids, but wait, this wasn't the same rrr we know today. That was going to be a Rayman beat em up where you could use the new powerups from R3. That game was almost finished we even got trailers and screenshots. They should had called it Rayman 4 Raving Rabids. Maybe that was planned for the final release. I have more to share that I found. In the gba and Nds releases of the 1st Rayman Raving Rabids they have the story from one of the canceled Rayman 4 games. I the ds version does focus more on the mini games while the gba version probally is what Rayman 4 was going to be atleast with the story and worlds in it. One thing I thought was interesting about the gba version was that Ly and Murphy guide Rayman kinda like in Rayman 2 even in the intro Ly narrorates. I know it doesnt seem like much in gba but what if that was how Rayman 4 was going to be like.

The story from the GBA or DS version didn’t come from this cancelled Rayman 4. (it’s just worlds from it) Also, RRR was planned to be Rayman 4. (and maybe the final version is Rayman 4 ? I remember seeing a box art naming the game Rayman 4)

Has it been confirmed the story didnt come from the canned games? Maybe it didn'd but it does seem like a story that Ubisoft at that time would use in a Rayman game and it isnt like in Rayman 3 on gba where they added Rayman 2 characters. Yes they added Ly but this is different because it builds on the story like the Raynan games before it.

Remember the Rayman Raving Rabids website? The hosters of it kept it up untill Rayman Origins came and replaced the site with Rayman Origins. The Rabids that were shown on that site were more determined to have anyone or anything eliminated. Compared to what we ended up with on the consoles. The rabids weren't a joke untill Ubisoft saw what a money maker the Wii could be. The only reason the PS2 and Xbox 360 got the 1st game at all is because the game was supose to be multi plat (i know that it is on pc but I dont consider pc as a console more like it is its own thing like a smart phone or a mac.) The gba version specifically is the closest we got to the cancelled game and I understand not every detail of the story and game was taken straight from the original game that was canceled but some of it had to haf been scrapped from it because look at the trailer that we did get. What does it tell us? It tells us, rabids had invaded its up to Rayman to stop them. The gba version also tells us this. While the same could be said about the console versions the Rabids clearly are a different beast. They are a joke compared to the way they were supose to be at first.

It’s not Ubisoft fault that the Rabbids "replaced" Rayman (because they actually didn’t replace Rayman) it’s was because the prototype will not be finished in time, so instead, they decided to make a Party-Game for the console version.

In a way it was there fault. The game never came. Rayman 4 never happened. They could had done Rayman 4 and rrr side by side like with Rayman 3 and Rayman M. They could had delayed it and released it after rrr but again ubisoft saw where the money with the Wii and pretty much the Rabids replaced Rayman. Sure today the rabids and Rayman had seperated but they aren't doing any thing about the Rayman franchise. After legends , nothing so far. Yet we get Rabids and mario because that is where the money is on the Switch.

Mario + Rabbids is a good game (i played and finished it) and Rayman 4 happens if you consider Hoodlums Revenge/Rayman 3/Rayman Origins or even RRR as Rayman 4.

I've been having dreams about Phoenix Interactive's cancelled Rayman 4 a lot lately.

Like the time Sabertooth was dreaming almost nightly that Rayman 4 was released. Those were dark days indeed…

Hey, I have a question. Does someone have an artbook from Rayman Raving Rabbids (Rabbid Art Gallery)? It was added with some Xbox's version copies. I can't find its content.
