Rayman Origins for Wii U has been confirmed through a leaked trailer.

The video reveals how Near Field Technology works for Nintendo's new console, allowing toys and figures to interact with the touch-screen controller.



It shows both a heart and a Raving Rabbid figurine placed on the device, creating themed stages around both toys.

The trailer ends by showing a player reaching for an Ezio figure, one of the main characters from Assassin's Creed.

It also confirms the existence of the heavily rumoured sequel to Rayman Origins, offering new settings with castles and dragons, and new playable characters including a female viking.
