Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle: Infos & screenshots leaked
The existence of a collaboration game between Nintendo and Ubisoft exclusively developed for the Switch is one of the first rumours that was shared on the networks. And today, evidence piling up from different sources strongly suggests that this rumour might indeed be totally legit. This game would be called “Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle” and lots of infos supported by several screenshots were leaked.
According to the screens shared below, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is developed by Ubisoft Paris & Milan (Snowdrop Engine), with a launch slated for August/September. Where the Rabbids titles are mostly party games, this one will be a “crazy combat adventure”, with a dedicated Story Mode (20h to complete) and 2-player co-op included. We’ll have the choice to play either with a hero from the Mushroom Kingdom (Mario, Luigi, Peach, Yoshi) or a Rabbid dressed up as one of these heroes.
The game will divide in two styles: exploration (35% of the gameplay) & turn-based combat (65%). Our characters would progress in four twisted Mario’s worlds filled with puzzles, secret zones and easter eggs. Combats would be highly tactical and use canon weapons, with each character having its own style. See all the details in the screenshots below.
If this rumour turns out to be true, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle will be revealed during the Nintendo Spotlight at E3 2017, with hands-on gameplay to come up shortly after.
