Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Revealed

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.

Check out the announcement videos, screenshots, and art after the break!

REVIEW – Bravely Second: End Layer

So, you’ve returned. Do you still remember? I welcome you back to Luxendarc, two years following the events of the Great Chasm, when the crystals fell into a deep darkness. The world has been at peace and the war between the Crystal Orthodoxy and the Duchy of Eternia has since been ceased. Though that was then. And now, a new tale must be told…

Bravely Second: End Layer follows the long journey of Yew Geneolgia, a young knight from Gathelatio, where he will loose close friends but create new faithful companions, on his quest to save her holiness, Agnès Oblige, and discover the deep, dark secret of the Kaiser Oblivion.

Will Bravely Second: End Layer take home the gravy, or is it as weak as an Appling? Find out in our review after the break!
