Legendary games designer Michel Ancel teased fans with new art work for the lead protagonist in Beyond Good & Evil on a Rayman Legends Twitch stream that the team did recently.

Ubisoft posted the above image of Pey’j from the critically acclaimed Beyond Good & Evil on their Facebook page. The team at Ubisoft wrote “We’re a bit busy prepping for E3. Time to call in some reinforcements. (Points if you remember this classic character!)” Beyond Good & Evil 2 was announced way back in 2008. Hopefully we will see the return of the long-awaited game at E3 next week.

Beyond Good & Evil 2 2009 Gameplay Trailer Finally In Gorgeous HD

A forum member over at Neogaf has managed to get his hands on HD footage of the Beyond Good & Evil 2 gameplay trailer that Ubisoft showed off to the press back in 2009. Beyond Good & Evil 2 was mentioned earlier this week when the development team confessed that they need ‘additional hardware power’ in order to run the game. This prompted many to speculate that Beyond Good & Evil 2 is currently in development for next generation consoles.

Beyond Good & Evil 2 Needs More Hardware Power To Run

Ubisoft has revealed in a recent video that the development team need additional hardware power to run the game, suggesting that the game will be in development for next generation consoles. The original Beyond Good & Evil came to the Gamecube back in 2003 so hopefully we will eventually see the sequel on Wii U.

Can you tell us on which platforms BG&E 2 will be released?

“We won’t make promises that we can’t keep. We are in an active creation stage and at this moment we are only focusing on the game and making it the best game that we can. That decision would just distracts us from that objective. I can say that it’s a very ambitious game and we need some tech to achieve that ambition.”

This last teaser video is very reminiscent of Mirror’s Edge. Is it an influence for your game?

“No, not at all. We had this concept even before Mirror’s Edge launched. And we have a different approach to the first person perspective that Mirror’s Edge has. Prince of Persia and Assassin’s Creed are closer to what we have in mind with the control of the character in a third person perspective. We use a very dynamic camera that shakes a lot during the action to add life to the camera giving the impression of an action news cover team following Jade. Maybe that could be similar to Mirror’s Edge but the game itself is very different.”

“We focus on the game. We create it first, then we’ll see what can run it “

“We don’t say 2013 because we don’t know when it will come. We’re working to create a great game and it needs more tech “
