Ubisoft and Nintendo confirmed their partnership during Ubi’s E3 press conference a few days ago. And though they shared information that we already knew about, it was awesome to see the Mario + Rabbids game in action.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is the story of an unexpected encounter between the Mushroom Kingdom and the Rabbids. Somehow, a mysterious vortex mashed their worlds together – it seemingly altered the kingdom in crazy ways – forcing this unlikely team of heroes to join forces. What follows is a X-Com like adventure, where players must strategically take down enemies using the special abilities/weapons of each character.

I wouldn’t worry too much about that strategy part. The platforming action and rampant humor of the Rabbids color the gameplay; it won’t be as intense as other titles of this ilk. Not only that but there is co-operative mode where friends can team up to battle enemies. This would of course, allow them to practice a bit as they share the challenge with a buddie.



Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle will be available in two editions: Standard and Collectors. The Collector’s Edition will come with a six-inch figurine of Rabbid Mario, a set of physical collectors cards, and the original soundtrack on CD. Both version will be available on August 29th for the Nintendo Switch!
