The Nintendo Switch gets another exclusive this week, and it’s not even made by Nintendo.
Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, the game everyone thought was a bad idea until they saw it at E3, launches this week on the Switch.
Kingdom Battle is a crossover title that sees Ubisoft’s Rabbids teaming up with Mario, Peach and others to help save the kingdom. The Rabbids will often wear costumes of Luigi and other Mario heroes, which some say is adorable.
The gameplay is a modern twist on classic XCOM turn-based tactics, with characters helping each other reach height advantage.
Ubisoft recently announced a season pass for Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle. Priced $20, the season pass includes new solo and co-op challenges, new steampunk-themed weapons, and new story content in 2018.
