posted on by Karen Ressler
Nintendo Switch game slated for August 29

Game developer Ubisoft confirmed during its E3 presentation on Friday that its is developing a crossover between Nintendo's Mario franchise and its Rabbids franchise. The game, titled Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, will launch for Nintendo Switch on August 29.

Ubisoft began streaming a behind-the-scenes video detailing the development of the crossover.

Ubisoft describes the game:

In Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, you'll explore a Mushroom Kingdom that has been turned upside-down. Those iconic green pipes have sprouted Rabbid ears and turned white, and many other sights familiar to Nintendo fans have been caught up in the craziness. As you explore this colorful, vibrant world, you'll collect coins, solve puzzles, and find hidden chests containing items and gear to help your team grow stronger against the challenging enemies that stand between you and your goal.

The characters in the game are Mario, Peach, Luigi, Yoshi, Rabbid Mario, Rabbid Peach, Rabbid Luigi, and Rabbid Yoshi. Each has different weapons and abilities for use in turn-based gameplay. Players can choose three characters for single-player campaigns, and two characters each for co-op challenges.

The game will launch with a standard edition and a collector's edition with a Rabbid Mario figurine, collector's cards, and the original soundtrack. Those who preorder the game will receive eight in-game weapons.
