Yup. It’s true. A crossover between Super Mario and Rabbids is going to be a thing on August 29th. (It’s XCOM + Mario + Rabbids).
Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle is a turn-based tactical (XCOM!) adventure game where you wander around in a charming-looking world with an exploration mode as well as a battle mode. I think the game looked pretty cool, to be honest.
We know this much about the combat system: we enter battlefield zones with a variety of characters. These characters will have different abilities, creating a mix-and-match system – as we progress, we get more weapons, and more heroes, bringing more tactics to the field. This way, the player will have to plan each movement sequence before playing them out. This is a game that can go both ways, I feel. It could turn out to be really weird, or it could turn out to be totally awesome. I’m excited to figure out the answer to that!
Consider me intrigued… Watch the funny and adorable trailer here:
