Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle - Nintendo E3 Conference

What time is E3 2017? Schedule, how to watch in the UK, and when are the Xbox, PS4 and Nintendo conferences – all

Ubisoft made a decision to open their E3 press conference to quite the unlikely alliance: Mario and Rabbids are teaming up in a brand new crossover RPG, titled Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. But the trailer proves that notion wrong. And it looks as though the game makers drew from past titles to include lots of the goofy flair and amusing quirks from the Rabbids and Super Mario franchises. However, now with the official reveal, players now know the official details and the game does look pretty cool.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle looks interesting, with both a heavy exploration component and turn-based battles. It also looks fantastic to boot, with deep strategic gameplay. Players will be able to customise their heroes with different weapons allowing them to perform different attacks.

Nintendo mastermind Shigeru Miyamoto was on hand at Ubisoft's E3 event in Los Angeles Monday to introduce the new game. Needless to say that the collaboration thrilled Soliani.

The premise of the crossover is that the Rabbids have been introduced to the Mushroom Kingdom, so now, like nearly everything else they touch, the kingdom is broken. Of course, it's up to Mario to save the day. Ubisoft also teases that Beyond Good and Evil 2 will allow players to explore System 3 alone or with friends and "dive into the foundations of the franchise's universe while traveling between diverse planets and moons in search of adventure". The French video game publisher has continued supporting Nintendo's consoles over the years, such as the Wii and the Wii U.

"[Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle] was a very exciting challenge for all our teams".

If this concept is new to you and you can't help but think that this all sounds a little odd, take comfort in the fact that these games have always prided themselves on their strangeness.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle launches on the Nintendo Switch on August 29.

Now, Walmart has posted a product listing for a Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Day One Edition. Has your perception of the game changed now that Ubisoft has finally explained exactly what type of game it is?
