Ubisoft and Nintendo have released a new trailer and some good looking screens + character art pieces for their upcoming super epic cross-over, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle!
The upcoming Mario and Rabbids cross-over is ranked extremely high on our must-have list for the Nintendo Switch and it is easy to say that we really like this new trailer. Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is a family friendly Xcom with everybody’s favourite Nintendo characters like; Mario, Peach, Yoshi and luigi mixed with the notorious and evenly annoying Ubisoft Rabbids. Sounds like the perfect combination right?
Check out the brand new trailer below followed by some new screens and artwork. Don’t forget to leave your thoughts on this epic cross-over in the comments below.
Kingdom Battle at E3
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom battle was announced during this years E3 show. While the big guys Sony and Microsoft tried to out-perform their rival, Ubisoft delivered probably their best show in years. No Aisha was Kudo number one, and then they announced some really nice fresh IP’s like Skull & Bones and Starlink. Hell, at the end of the show they even showed a teaser for the long-awaited Beyond Good & Evil 2. But the real surprise was a game nobody was waiting for: Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle. Yves Guillemot took the E3 2017 stage and put on an awkward performance with no other than Mr. Miyamoto himself.
The Ubisoft mascots team up with Mario and his friends in this turn-based-strategy game, in order to defeat all the Raving Rabbids and save the world. Mario + Rabbids roam the stages and confront their enemies in a mode that just is Xcom, and that is a really good move by Ubisoft Paris and Milan studios. Everybody carries a gun or weapon of choice and can make one move per turn. So you’ll want to get behind cover and shoot from the perfect spot.
The characters in your team each have different weapons they carry, and special abilities with a cooldown timer. The combat starts off relatively easy, but soon you’ll be introduced to complex Xcom tactics. Duck for cover and use your alley as a trampoline to move twice as far.
Although Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle sounds like the biggest mistake in the gaming industry this year, personally we think it’s the best we were shown at E3 2017.
You can buy the game starting August 29th, 2017 on Nintendo Switch via the Ubisoft Store. It also comes as Limited Edition alongside some nice statues of those crazy Rabbids. The 3” and 6” figurines of Rabbid Mario, Rabbid Luigi, Rabbid Peach and Rabbid Yoshi are available to pre-order via the Ubisoft Store.
