PSA: Rayman Jungle Run races early onto iOS, reaches Android tomorrow


Rayman Jungle Run, originally scheduled to release tomorrow, is now available on iOS for $2.99. Ubisoft confirmed the early release this morning, noting the Android version is still due out tomorrow.

Rayman Jungle Run, announced last month, unabashedly takes the perpetual motion platforming made popular by Canabalt and coats it with a Rayman Origins sheen. If that tickles $3 worth of your fancy, you can purchase and download it on the App Store now. Those already wrapped up in sleeping bags outside their local Apple stores may be warmed by the knowledge of a "full iPhone 5 optimization" update in the pipeline.
