Nintendo World Report did an interview at this year’s E3 with Mario + Rabbids creative director Davide Soliani. At one point, NWR asked Soliani if they could reveal some exploration parts of the game. Soliani revealed details about the game’s chapters, boss fights, and more. Here’s what he had to say:
“I don’t want to spoil much, but I will say it’s 30 percent of the overall game. It’s needed to connect the combat phases, but I didn’t want to ever just have a hub where the player could load battles. I wanted to create a seamless experience and that’s why we said players should really immerse in the exploration, and you know every world is divided into 10 chapters, like the chapters of a book, you can read just a chapter, or you can read multiple of them. There’s are some secret chapters in each world. In each world there is a mid boss in the middle of it. There’s a boss fight at the end of it. There are secret chapters, and in between you have exploration where you can collect treasure chests in order to find collectibles, but also cool weapons that can upgrade your character. You can solve puzzles to advance and you can meet several other heroes that will start to be part of your roster. And each of the heroes has unique abilities; these will open up new possibilities in terms of strategy gameplay for the players to be applied on the battleground.”
I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around this game having exploration. To me it seemed like it was just glorified loading screens.

Yeah…How about that.
When I first heard of this game and then heard it was a turn based style game I thought there was no way in hell I would ever want to play it. Once I seen the trailer I was sold.
With what he said we can confirm DK as a character that will join Mario and company (the boss that resemble DK is an ovbious hint). I hope Wario, Daisy and Waluigi join as well.
