Typically these HD versions try to keep to the original as far as possible, they usually remaster the soundtrack and voice acting to make it up to date and so that it works with 5:1 surround sound, but with keeping to the original voice acting and soundtrack.
As much as I know Rayman 3 out of my head by countless score/combo replays in the past, I'd still get this. Especially if it'll be 800MSP. And to be honest, I personally prefer Rayman 3 abouve Rayman 2, a game that has been ported/remade more times than I died in Rayman Origins.
