A very unlikely crossover (unless you’ve been following certain rumours) was revealed earlier at Ubisoft’s E3 Conference, exclusively for Nintendo Switch. The new tactical adventure, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle has been officially announced, and will be releasing in the West on the 29th August 2017 (that’s a day before my 22nd birthday y’all).
The game, which has been in the works for three years, follows a new adventure where Rabbids have somehow found a way to invade a new universe, specifically the Mushroom Kingdom. Unfortunately some of the Rabbids have gone bad (or rabid), so it is up to Mario to team up with other Rabbids to put an end to this chaos.
The game is primarily a turn based tactical RPG (similar to Fire Emblem), but will also include some exploration segments too. Each characters will have their own abilities, there are support abilities too, and you also have the ability to destroy cover if you are a bit of a daredevil! Finally, it was also announced by the man himself that Grant Kirkhope was involved with creating the music for the title.
