Two-Player Local Co-op!
Could this have been Nintendo’s biggest E3 surprise? If it was, that ship has sailed as someone has provided the Nintendo World Report with enough information and art about Mario x Rabbids Kingdom Battle to give us a good idea of what the game really is.
The art itself doesn’t seem like official art that is made to make the rounds on social media, but instead, it seems like it is made for the purposes of internal communications within the Ubisoft and Nintendo teams.
This is what the tell us:
Title: Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle
Genre: Crazy combat adventure
Release date: August/September 2017
Platform: Nintendo Switch
Developer: Ubisoft Paris & Milan
Storymode length: Approx. 20 hours
Age Rating: PEGI 7 (Provisional)
Multiplayer: 2 Player Local co-op
Last thing we are missing of course is actual gameplay, so expect that to be shown first at E3, unless Nintendo decides it is time to open the floodgates for this title. Nintendo’s E3 showcase is this June 13th and Mario x Rabbids Kingdom Battle is rumored to be released sometime between August and September of this year, making the wait for this title easier to bear.
