The game is coming out on the day of Nintendo's press conference, and the press release insinuates it might be hitting the eShop and retail.

Rayman Origins is set for a June 5 release on the 3DS, according to Ubisoft. The game might be coming to both the eShop and retail outlets, though.

Ubisoft's official press release has a curious conclusion: "The full version of the game will be available at retailers and online on June 5, 2012."

The use of online could just mean online retailers, but then again, June 5 is also the same day as Nintendo's E3 press conference, where the company will likely make announcements about the 3DS and the impending full game downloads.

Previously, the 3DS version of Rayman Origins was scheduled for release on March 20, 2012. However, it was later delayed to an unspecified date in June 2012.

Additionally, some online retailers have the game set to launch in Europe on June 8, 2012

Aww lame.  I mean that's cool, I'm just stubborn and was hoping nintendo would be the ones to pioneer their own digital retail space, not ubisoft, whom I loathe.

Nintendo is just better at keeping secrets. Remember, it's the Nintendo press conference. This game will probably just be gravy.

Either way I have mt copy pre-ordered at Game Stop.

Well, there's also Unchained Blades which is a retail game in Japan but an eShop release in the US. Does that count for beating Nintendo to the punch?

Hopefully our hotel's Wi-Fi will be good enough, because if this is true I'll be buying the eShop version while at E3.

The console version will probably be cheaper and run better by June 5, but I may channel my inner J.P. and download it to have it portable and without having to switch out a cart. And then tell everyone, "I own it but haven't played it."

I'd say I'd get it from 4G tethering, but the demo's kind of bad, so now I don't think I'll get it at all.
