Mario x Rabbids is a very real RPG coming to Nintendo Switch

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe helps the Nintendo Switch to yet another record

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, the rumored crossover RPG from Ubisoft and Nintendo, will reportedly release either this August or September for Nintendo Switch. The "crossover RPG" is set to be built on Ubisoft's Snowdrop engine and should release in Spring this year.

"With more than 459,000 combined packaged and digital sales in the US on launch day alone (April 28), Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for the Nintendo Switch system is the fastest-selling game in the long-running Mario Kart series", the press release said. A glitch in the game's online multiplayer challenge disappointed many players given the "communication error" notifications that would constantly appear in the said mode's lobby.

Expect an announcement at this year's E3.

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. For those hesitating on the Nintendo Switch, this game is also offered in a bundle with the console - for those lucky enough to find it. Not hitting with a big Zelda or Mario game didn't make the Wii U a failure, and the system had a number of fantastic titles. Let us know in the comments section below. The launch titles for the Wii U weren't as groundbreaking as Breath of the Wild, but launching a console with any Legend of Zelda title blasts any numbers off the charts and up into space. Wonderfully, almost all of these can be entirely ignored, and you can play Mario Kart 8 Deluxe without any knowledge, and it's still riotous fun.


A freakish crossover RPG combining the Super Mario and Rabbids franchises is set to be released in the fall for the Nintendo Switch. Taking the most recognisable mascot this industry has even known, and smashing it together with the mad ravings and musing of a far lesser known cast of characters that you might have preferred to disappear entirely.

Smart steering and auto-accelerate, however, "effectively take not only challenge, but also skill, out of the game".

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is sublime.

Of course, with nothing more than a name and someone's projection of information based on tidbits of information and art we've never seen, it's hard to gauge just how appealing Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle will be to casual, hardcore, young or old audiences. Overall, the game boasts an attach rate of 45 percent meaning that 45 percent of all Switch owners bought the game.
