One of the more curious titles we have heard about for the Nintendo Switch is Rabbids Kingdom Battle. The game is a joint development between Nintendo and Ubisoft and stars Nintendo’s very own mascot, Mario, and also Ubisoft’s popular Rabbids. The game is set in the Mushroom Kingdom with the Rabbids dimensions invading it. Investigative journalist Liam Robertson has provided some more information on the mysterious game in a series of tweets.
I haven’t played it myself, but I hear it is closer to a strategy RPG style thing like X-Com than a conventional RPG.
I don’t know what the title is. There was a rumoured name a little while back that had “Mushroom Kingdom Battle” in the title, I think.
It’s set in the Mushroom Kingdom and the rabbids dimension is sort of invading it. Most of the enemies are evil/warped rabbids.
It does feature Mario and various other main series characters. Nintendo has apparently been very controlling of how they are used.
There are also rabbids themed around various Mario characters like Mario and Luigi (costumed rabbids, that sorta thing).
It was Ubisoft who pitched the game to Nintendo a while ago. Nintendo gave them the thumbs up and was happy to do it and closely oversee.
Gameplay is largely strategy based. There are many weapons and there is a focus on equipping your characters with the appropriate weaponry.
The game is content complete and localised, ready to ship. Has been since late last year.
