Mario + Rabbids reduces Nintendo’s famous hero to the pop-culture icon he’s become

Screenshot: Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle/Ubisoft The opening scene of Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle depicts Nintendo’s hero as we rarely see him within his own series: as the real-world pop-culture icon that he is.

Mario + Rabbids is a shockingly good Nintendo Switch strategy game

When images of Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle first leaked ahead of E3 this year, it felt like a joke. Here was Nintendo’s most important character paired with… a Minion-like rabbit taking selfies in Princess Peach cosplay? Things got even stranger as more details emerged. Not only was the mash-up real, it was a turn-based strategy game in the XCOM mold, complete with Mario, Luigi, and crew wielding laser-spewing guns. But the biggest surprise is …

Mario Rabbids Kingdom Battle Nintendo Switch Review

Nintendo / Ubisoft We’ll admit, when the idea of Nintendo’s immortal icon Mario crossing paths with Ubisoft’s anarchic and – we’ll say it – frequently irritating Rabbids was first floated, we groaned along with the rest of the internet. Surely, at best, it would be a crossover on par with the Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games sub-franchise – good for character recognition and keeping younger players happy, but not living up to the …

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Review – Switch

When Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle was revealed to the world through a leaked image of a selfie-taking ‘Rabbid Peach’, it’s fair to say that not all reacted with joy. It seemed like a horrific bit of fan art, especially once follow-up artwork showed Mario and company targeting guns at foes; yet when the game was revealed plenty of eyebrows were raised and it became clear that Ubisoft had embarked upon an ambitious quest to …

‘Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle’ Hands-On, Nintendo Switch

Mario’s got a gun. So does iconic plumber’s brother, Luigi. As does Nintendo’s usually amiable egg-laying, everything-eating Yoshi. Not to be outdone, Princess Peach carries a massive shotgun. Coming to the Nintendo Switch on Aug. 29th, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is a bizarre mash-up game that smashes together Nintendo’s brightly colored universe with Ubisoft’s slightly dark, slightly crazed mayhem-centric Rabbids. The game brings with it many firsts. It is the first direct Nintendo and …

In defence of the Rabbids, the unlikely successors to XCOM

Kid’s crap. Knock-off Minions. Mascots of a bargain bin Wii franchise. That’s probably how you think of the Rabbids, the diminutive stars of the games you black out for during the Ubisoft E3 conference. Read more: the best strategy games on PC. Since this year’s E3, though, the publicly accepted position on the subject has become dislodged. It hangs uncomfortably in the ether, like one of the two teeth in a Rabbid’s maw. Because somehow, …
