As the PC version of Rayman M™ is released in Europe, Ubi Soft Entertainment can proudly announce that its game featuring the famous character with no arms or legs has sold over 10,500,000 copies. Rayman reaches a new stage in his epic story.

Available on all platforms, Rayman is one of the best-selling games for the PlayStation® game console, with sales of over 3,800,000 copies since its launch. Rayman® Advance™ has seen incredible success since it was released, with 600,000 games sold. As for future success stories, Rayman M for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system has been available in Europe since November 29, 2001. Players in the United States will have to wait until March 2002 before they can enjoy Rayman Arena on Nintendo GameCube™, PlayStation®2, PlayStation® , Xbox and PC formats.

The Rayman brand owes its success to the extraordinary talent of the Ubi Soft design teams, who were able to create a truly unique world and a quality of gameplay that never disappoints, from one game to another. The work of these teams has been rewarded several times: Rayman® 2 The Great Escape™ was voted best Sega Dreamcast™ game in 2000 by IGN and best platform game (PlayStation) by Electronic Boutique. Rayman® Advance™ was voted best platform game and best graphics on a portable console by IGN at this year's E3 trade show.

"The first time Michel Ancel first drew the Rayman character, I never would have believed just how successful he'd become," said Yves Guillemot, President and CEO, Ubi Soft Entertainment. "Rayman has been the work of an outstanding team that created him and supported him from the very beginning. This team will continue to follow him throughout his new adventures and I'm sure that what is to come will be as crazy as ever!"
