Free-to-play platform fighter Brawlhalla is among the best games inspired by the Super Smash Bros. formula. Brawlhalla's contemporaries have racked up a number of guest stars (the most notable of which is seeing Shovel Knight take his weapon of choice to Rivals of Aether) over the past few months, so publisher Ubisoft has decided to bring out one of its most recognizable characters to guest star for its game.

That is indeed Rayman, who will be taking up arms as Brawlhalla's most high-profile guest character yet. The announcement was made on Ubisoft's Twitch stream direct from PAX West. Rayman will be the game's 42nd character and will join the battle on November 6, the same day that Brawlhalla releases on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.

Those curious about what Brawlhalla's all about can check it out right now on Steam and PlayStation 4, free of charge.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
