This Smart News Release features multimedia. Just, you know with Mario and Rabbid characters instead of gritty space soliders. Outwit unpredictable enemies in dynamic turn-based combat and co-op challenges, and solve puzzles along the way. The single-player campaign consists of four worlds, with players able to fill out their party with characters from the Mario universe and Rabbids that resemble them.
It is being described as a "tactical adventure" by Ubisoft.
Ubisoft kicked off its E3 2017 presentation with Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. The exploration of the 3D world included some truly freaky sights - like a giant toilet with a spiked-choker-wearing duck floating within - before we got to see the gameplay in all its tactical, turn-based glory.
The Mushroom Kingdom has been torn apart by a mysterious vortex, transporting the chaotic Rabbids into this once peaceful land. 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. "The teaming of our intellectual properties is symbolic of this partnership, and we can't wait for players to get their hands on the game". Kingdom Battle was held back until now.

Nintendo is great at giving its consoles support from their exclusive blockbusters like Mario and Zelda, but if it doesn't have other big gaming franchises and studios on-side, it might not sell as many units as it would like. For the 2016-17 fiscal year Ubisoft generated sales of €1,460 million.
According to Ubisoft, the story begins when the Rabbids are mysteriously transported to the Mushroom Kingdom. All Rights Reserved.

Given the popularity of Nintendo's mascot, it seemed inevitable that Ubisoft would take a run at drumming up some extra cash through tie-in merchandise - which it will now officially be doing through several different forms.
The initial details hinted at a game that's similar to Super Mario RPG.
