Mad Catz Releasing Raving Rabbids Controllers and Accessories

Oh God.


Madcatz has secured the rights to manufacture whatever the hell they want based on Ubisoft’s Rayman: Raving Rabbids franchise. They’ll be creating “a range of accessories” stemming from the long-eared, bug-eyed little buggers, so that Wii-mote plunger attachment you’ve been dreaming of could very well be within your stout, plumberly grasp.
