Nintendo and Ubisoft will reportedly team up on a brand new crossover game. The two gaming giants will reportedly announce the new Nintendo Switch game at the E3 Gaming Expo to be held between 13-15 June.
If the rumours are true, then Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is a new role-playing game being developed by Ubisoft. In fact, it will be made using the company’s Snowdrop engine, which was also used for The Division.
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom is said to have an August/September release date for Nintendo Switch, and will be unveiled during Ubisoft’s E3 press conference.
According to Kotaku, characters include Mario, Luigi, Yoshi and Peach, as well as four Rabbids dressed as the Nintendo icons.
In addition to characters from the Mario and Rabbids series of games, Battle Kingdom features turn-based combat and two-person co-operative multiplayer.
It’s good news for the Nintendo Switch games list, especially with high-profile new releases like Darksiders 3 and Call of Duty: WW2 not appearing on the platform.
