Today Ubisoft released a new trailer of its upcoming Mario-meets-Rabbids-meets-XCOM game Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle.
The trailer focuses on the man with the mustache himself, on top of giving a good look at the weapons he’ll be able to take down the aliens… ahem, I meant the Rabbids.
We also take a glimpse on Mario’s many abilities, including smashing multiple enemies with a giant hammer, going into overwatch… ahem, I mean react during the enemy turn, boost allies’ attacks, and stomping enemies.
As usual, the game looks super-colorful and super-crisp. I will admit that every time I look at it, I struggle to believe that this isn’t simply a Nintendo game. That’s definitely a job well done by the folks at Ubisoft Milan and Paris, and a testament to the flexibility of The Division‘s Snowdrop engine.
We also just learned that the game will be playable at Gamescom in Cologne starting on August 22nd.
Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle also won our Best Strategy Game award at E3 2017. It will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch on August 29th.
