Ubisoft's long-awaited Rayman Legends is almost ready to ship, and will once again introduce players to a fun mix of platforming action and multiplayer madness.

To prepare gamers for the upcoming sequel, Ubisoft unleashed a launch trailer, showing a number of examples of the kind of dangers you'll face throughout the game. From large mechanical dragons to an unstoppable horde of shadow beasts, you'll have your work cut out for you, whether you go alone or with friends.

One thing you'll certainly appreciate is the hand-drawn art style, which takes advantage of the UbiArt animation system. This brings the world to vivid life, even better than Origins a couple of years ago.

Check out the launch trailer below, and get into the slap-happiness of Rayman Legends for yourself when it releases on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PS Vita, PC and Wii U September 3rd.
