Rayman Origins 3DS brings beauty to Europe on March 16, still no NA launch date

While it sadly didn't make it into our top ten list for 2011, Rayman Origins is arguably one of the most beautiful games of 2011, if not ever. And now our starved-for-visuals friends across the pond with 3DSes get to experience it before us.

Well, okay, we only assume they'll get first crack -- Ubisoft has yet to comment on a North American launch date, instead affixing a vague Q1 2012 time-frame to the title. Rayman Origins will launch on the 3DS on March 16 across Europe, Official Nintendo Magazine confirms. Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii versions have been available in the region since back in November.

We've contacted Ubisoft to see when Rayman Origins 3DS will launch in North America and will update this post accordingly.
