Nintendo Insider, Emily Rogers has released some more information on that Mario + Rabbids crossover RPG that Ubisoft are said to be working on for Nintendo Switch.

She has revealed that the game will apparently have eight playable characters including Mario, Luigi Peach and Yoshi, fit with their own sci-fi weapons including lasers and arm cannons.

Apparently though, you won’t control these characters. You’ll control a small floating dish, which can guide the characters through the world.

Lastly, she confirmed that there would be co-op multiplayer.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle” has eight playable characters — including Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Yoshi — and they each have their own sci-weapons, laser guns, arm cannons, etc. But you don’t control the characters — you control Tuttorio, a small floating dish, to guide them through the worlds. There is also co-op multiplayer.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle has not been confirmed but it was seemingly leaked in a Ubisoft anniversary video which showed Nintendo characters seemingly merged with Ubisoft’s Rabbid characters. 

We’d expect it to be revealed at E3 at either Nintendo’s showing or Ubisoft’s press conference.

Thanks, Emily.
