SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - Ubisoft's captivatingly colourful Rayman videogame hero hit new-generation consoles on Tuesday.

Rayman Legends for play on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One videogame consoles is the latest installment of the popular franchise where Rabbids debuted as zany adversaries that grew so popular they were spun into a separate series.

Ubisoft customized unlockable characters for each of the rival consoles, with one inspired by a villain from Far Cry and another based on the hero in Assassin's Creed IV. Ubisoft continued its pattern of pouncing on hardware innovations, enhancing graphics and loading speeds to take advantage of greater power and building in exclusive game-play features.

Touch pads on PS4 controllers can be used to scratch "lucky tickets" during game play, and scenes from play can be captured and shared using a camera mode.
