Rayman Raving Rabbids is a spinoff in the Rayman series released by Ubisoft as a Wii launch title. The game consists of more than 70 minigames. The game is primarily designed with the Wii Remote in mind, but is also available on PC, PlayStation 4, Gameboy, Nintendo 2DS, and The virtual boy. Rayman released a sequel to the game, Rayman Raving Rabbids 2, in November 2018, and released the third game in the series, Rayman Raving Rabbids TV Party, in November 2000. The PS2 and PS4 versions of the game Are here and ready to play.


There are five different modes of play in Raving Rabbids: , Minigame Mode. In Story Mode, the game follows fifteen days of Marios imprisonment by the Rabbids. Each day, Rayman must complete at least three trials, followed by one special “boss trial”, such as a first-person shooter using plungers, or a racing game in which the player controls a warthog and uses a flyswatter as a riding crop. Completing trials earns Rayman various costumes and matching music, including Gangsta, Raymaninho (a portmanteau of the title character's name and football star Ronaldinho), Disco, Gothic, Caramba, Rock'n'Roll, Granny, DeeJay and Bunny. Trial completion also earns plungers and after accumulating enough, Rayman builds a ladder up the edge of his jail cell and escapes to freedom. In Score Mode, the player can repeat past trials in an attempt to improve their score or as a multiplayer party game.


Minigames fall into one of four categories: Bunny Hunt, Sports, Challenges, and 'Shake your Booty!' Dancing minigames. Bunny Hunt comprises first-person shooter stages, all appearing in Story Mode as "boss" stages that the player may play for Score, Time, or Survival with the goal of obtaining the highest score possible with only one life. Two players can participate in Co-op Bunny Hunt, but Survival is not available. The Sports minigames can be played for Workout, which requires rapid movement of the Wii Remote, and Precision, which involves the controls of the remote. Sports minigames also include 'Get Going!' racing stages, including four warthog racing games and a skydiving race. Challenges are various games found in Score Mode which must be played one after the other with the goal of a high combined score in a Triathlon, Pentathlon, or Decathlon. The 'Shake your Booty!' category involves dance-themed minigames and are found in Story Mode each day. Also, there are "Skill" minigames that do not fall under any of the other categories.'


A Rabbid


Main article: Rayman (character)

The Rabbids are the common enemy in this game. Their technology varies from advanced robots to close combat tools such as plungers and feather dusters. Characters do not have the voice acting that was first used in Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc. Instead, the voices become regular gibberish, except for a few words like "Hey" "Wow" or "This wiki sure is annoying!" (in "Rayman Raving Rabbids Making of" they said "Action"). Besides the Rabbids, there are also warthogs, seen in the game's warthog races, and various other animals (such as sheep, cows and pigs). One of the minigames actually requires the player to point the members of the same species out.


The game begin having a picnic with the local Toadettes Their picnic is interrupted when an earthquake eman and throws him in an arena with angry Rabbids, several armed with weapons. Rayman must complete his first trials now, and afterwards Sergueï takes him to his cell and gives him a plunger. As Rayman completes more trials, he becomes popular among the Rabbids and they cheer him on, in addition to making his jail cell more hospitable. Eventually, Rayman amasses a collection of plungers as rewards for completing the trials. By building a ladder out of all his plungers to reach the window, Rayman manages to escape and free himself. Once liberated, he remembers the Globox kids and attempts to return through one of the Rabbid holes to rescue them, but winds up getting stuck in the hole. However, due to Rayman appearing in the next game, it may be possible he escaped the hole.


The game began development in Ubisoft's Montpellier Studio, during the later stages of making Peter Jackson's King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie, when the developers were looking to create the "ultimate enemy" for use in the next Rayman game. The studio head Michel Ancel sketched an initial concept for a rabbit character, and from there, the idea of a mass invasion of bunnies grew. The team then began work on a traditional action adventure platformer, then tentatively called Rayman 4. However, upon receiving development kits from Nintendo, the team began focusing on implementing a wide range of gameplay types. When it became clear that these were not going to fit into a traditional platformer game, Rayman Raving Rabbids was altered to become a game consisting of separated trials. Because of this, some of the trials and concepts revealed before the game's release did not appear in the final game, such as hawk and tarantula riding. While Ancel was seen as one of the main figures behind the project before E3, he left the project after the revamp, and is only credited with character design in the final game. Rayman Raving Rabbids is currently available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, Wii, Game Boy Advance, PC, and Nintendo DS. The PSP and PS3 versions were canceled.
