Ubisoft wasted no time in pouring love all over Nintendo and the Switch during its E3 2017 press conference. It kicked off the show with Shigeru Miyamoto coming on stage and jumping right into the confirmation of Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle.
Ubisoft described the game as a “tactical adventure game,” but to keep it simple, we’ll just call it for what it is… “Super Mario XCOM!” Mario and the Rabbids can dive behind cover, plan attacks on invading enemies, use unique ability exclusive to certain characters, and conduct all this tactical combat to the relaxing sights and sounds of the Mushroom Kingdom.
Plus, the team gets let around by an adorable roomba.
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle will be available on Aug. 29 for the Nintendo Switch. Gotta say, I’m impressed! I love Ubisoft’s character models, but even more so, I love its renditions of the classic Mario theme songs. I can’t wait to see, hear, and play more.
