New Mario and Rabbids Crossover Rumors Emerge

The game will apparently have eight playable characters: Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, Peach and, bizarrely, four Rabbids dressed up as Mario, Luigi, Yoshi and Peach.

The crossover role-playing game will feature characters from Nintendo's Mario franchise along with the Rabbids from Ubisoft's Rayman and Rabbid series.

A Mario and Rabbids RPG is coming to Switch in spring, Kotaku reports. Since 2006's Rayman Raving Rabbids, the characters have appeared in 12 mobile and console titles ranging from platformers to party games.

The game is also said to have "a goofy sense of humor", with some of the art showing Mario and his friends carrying guns that fire lasers. August and September is a great time to release this on the Nintendo Switch as it's a release window that's not too crowded. Although the art assets were asked to not be shared by this anonymous source, they do prove that the game is in development.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is a turn-based RPG that supports two-players in local co-op.

The game, called Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, is built on Massive's Snowdrop engine, the same engine behind The Division.

Most of the talk about Mario recently has focused on Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and the upcoming Super Mario Odyssey for the Nintendo Switch.
