Today, Ubisoft released a new trailer to celebrate today’s launch of the Nintendo Switch exclusive Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. The strategy game stars an unlikely crossover between two of Nintendo and Ubisoft’s most ubiquitous franchises.
Developed by Ubisoft Milan and Ubisoft Paris,* Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle features Mario, Princess Peach, Yoshi, Luigi and four Rabbid heroes taking on combat, puzzles and exploration across four iconic worlds. In the campaign, players will form a team of three heroes from a roster of eight diverse characters, each with their own unique personalities and skill sets, ensuring that battles play out differently with each team combination. Using strategic vision and a collection of more than 250 unique weapons with distinct characteristics, players have multiple ways to guarantee victory.
The game’s additional local co-op challenges, available in two levels of difficulty, allow players to join forces with a friend and take on new challenges with a team of four heroes. Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle takes full advantage of the play anywhere, anytime ability of the Nintendo Switch, with battles playable on-the-go or at home. In addition, players will be able to unlock new in-game features with their unique amiibo figures.
“Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is truly a passion project from the development team and we can’t wait for players to get their hands on the game,” said Tony Key, senior vice president of marketing and consumer experience, Ubisoft. “The response from fans has been tremendous and we believe the game is a must-have for Nintendo Switch owners.”
