Ubisoft's Rabbids and Mario Crossover Announced, Mario+Rabbits Kingdom Battle

Miyamoto said via a translator at the press event that he challenged Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle's developers, "Whatever you do, don't make a jump game or a Mario platformer". Skull & Bones, a pirate-themed PvP naval combat title was also shown with both cinematic and gameplay trailers. In battle mode it seems you're playing a full on tactical turn-based game in which your heroes must defeat evil Rabbids.

In combat, each character has a zone of movement they can move around before attacking. Ubisoft is calling it a tactical battle game.

The Nintendo Switch may end up living and dying on its third party support, but Ubisoft has made its intentions clear. Its truly ridiculous cinematic trailer looks like Inception: Extreme Sports Edition, which probably isn't literally representative of the game, but remains gorgeous.

Shigeru Miyamoto, the legendary designer of Mario at Nintendo, came out onstage to talk about the game. Needless to say that the collaboration thrilled Soliani. The exploration of the 3D world included some truly freakish 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. Nintendo is very protective of its IP, and allowing Ubisoft to merge one of its franchises with Nintendo's biggest is like two huge Game of Thrones families joining their houses with a wedding. Just Dance, for instance, debuted on the Wii in 2009, and that series has gone on to sell more than 65 million copies to date.

This is the story of an unexpected encounter between Mario and the irreverent Rabbids.

In confirmation of Laura Kate Dale's claims since way before the launch of the Nintendo Switch, Ubisoft kicked off their conference with the confirmation of Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. Mario, Peach, Luigi and Yoshi team up with some similarly attired Rabbids and with some silly guns to take on enemy Rabbids.
