Mario and Rabbids Crossover Inbound – New Artwork Released
New artwork has surfaced for the rumored Mario and Rabbids crossover, Kingdom Battle. Perfect timing, with E3 looming just around the corner. Developers all over the world are preparing for the big show, dropping teasers and hints left and right for news designed to excite. Nintendo is no exception, and it seems that the Ubisoft + Nintendo partnership for the upcoming crossover is closer than ever to happening with this first look at the upcoming title for the Nintendo Switch. Check out the new artwork seen above.
Thanks to the team over at WWG, their connections with Ubisoft gave us a peek at the latest crossover and title to hit the Switch. Seeing the “rabbified” versions of these iconic Nintendo characters, such as Luigi and Peach, is kind of hilarious – especially when at a closer look, Peach is getting a little cozy with those selfie skills. Though the image is a great look at, it doesn’t really give a whole lot of insight into the gameplay itself. Both companies are remaining tight-lipped about the upcoming title, at least it seems that the light is green for an official E3 reveal.
Several sources have stated that this Rabbids crossover will be hitting the shelves soon, August in fact if the rumours are to be believed. Kingdom Battle will be a strategy RPG and with this year’s E3 housing many surprises, perhaps attendees will even get their hands on a demo with the alleged August release.
