Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Announced at Ubisoft’s E3 Conference (VIDEO)
It was recently leaked that Mario and Rabbids would be teaming up for a most interesting crossover. Actually, rumors go back as far as October of last year, but it is today, June 12, that the turn-based RPG has been confirmed. Ubisoft has just taken to the stage for their conference at this year’s E3, and the first thing to happen was the introduction of the one and only Shigeru Miyamoto. It was clear at this point that Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle was happening.
Armed with a life-sized laser canon, Miyamoto expressed “These are very different to the weapons in Ghost Recon.” He certainly isn’t wrong about this. After being transported to the Mushroom Kingdom, Rabbids team up with Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, and Yoshi to fix the world that has been ravaged by the not-so-nice Rabbids. Check out the trailer below, which is followed by the game’s features(provided by the video uploaded to Ubisoft’s YouTube channel):
- Mario & Rabbids universes collide in this new adventure that combines the best of these two worlds!
- Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, and Yoshi join forces with four Rabbids heroes with their own unique personalities!
- Easy to play, difficult to master. Solo and co-op turn-based combat is a fresh gameplay experience!
- Battle with an arsenal of weapons through four new worlds filled with enemies, puzzles, and humorous fun!
- Pick up and play anywhere exclusively on the Nintendo Switch system, even on the go!
- Includes access to 8 unique weapons.
