Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Is Now a Thing

There are very few things that surprise me in video-games these days. But this. This was one of them. Who could foresee, when we first heard rumours about Rabbids teaming up with Mario, that it would be a Turn-based-strategy game. Just check it out for yourself will you?

I don’t know what scares me more: The fact that Rabbids actually made me laugh, or that Mario is holding a hand cannon. Did the Mushroom Kingdom only just pass firearms legislation?

This is straight up XCOM, and I fucking. love. It. It appears they’ve added their own unique twists to the classic formula, so that, combined with Mario and I am ludicrously excited.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is set to be released on the 29th of August of this year for Nintendo Switch. That’s pretty close!
