Ubisoft dropped a real bombshell today: They will be working with Nintendo on a crossover with Super Mario Bros. and their own Rabbids franchise. They pitched this idea to Shigeru Miyamoto years ago, and now it’s really happening.
Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle will be a tactical adventure game, similar to XCOM, which all happens because the Rabbids accidentally warp themselves into the Mushroom Kingdom. Players will control Mario, his friends, and Rabbids dressed like Mario characters, as they travel through puzzle-filled levels, and use rayguns to combat familiar foes, as well as some strange new faces. A rabbid combined with a piranha plant appears in one of the trailers.
Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle is set to launch August 29 for Nintendo Switch. Check out the trailer here.
