At its UbiDays event, publisher and developer Ubisoft announced details on its forthcoming lineup, including a return of Michel Ancel's Beyond Good and Evil, more Rayman Raving Rabbids for the Wii, and more details on its new next-gen Prince of Persia title. No details on Beyond Good and Evil were given beyond a new teaser trailer (pictured), including intended platforms or a release date, but Ancel is known to be behind the sequel to the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and PC original. The company promised its new Rabbids Wii title, Rayman Raving Rabbids TV Party, would showcase "fun and innovative use of the Wii controllers," including new features for Wii Fit's Balance Board, in minigames that spoof "TV shows, pop culture and even advertisements." Also revealed were games from its casual lineup, including a title for the DS to be released in November entitled Allen Carr's Easyway to Stop Smoking, based on the popular habit-kicking program. Speaking more on its previously announced Prince of Persia sequel, Ubisoft said that in addition to its new hero and open world structure, the game would feature a "dynamic AI companion" named Elika who will "interact with the player in combat, acrobatics and puzzle-solving" with "special duo acrobatic moves or devastating fighting combo attacks." The game uses the company's proprietary 'Anvil' engine previously seen in its Assassins Creed. Finally, Ubisoft is using the same engine for its forthcoming Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, and PC game Shaun White Snowboarding, which will feature open world mountains, online players populating your own game, snowball fights, and Balance Board support for the Wii version.
