Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle adds Versus Mode to its repertoire

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Versus Mode

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Versus Mode

The new mode is a welcome addition to a fantastic game, and once again shows Ubisoft delicately balancing the mix of paid and free add-on content for their games.

Turns go back and forth with players getting three actions per turn, making the biggest challenge the most presents.

In the main campaign for Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, players will form a team of three unique characters, customizing their abilities via each character's dedicated skill tree to form the ideal trio.

Ubisoft is challenging their Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle players to check just how sharp their skills are in the new co-op Versus mode that arrives tomorrow, December 8. The mode's characters are said to be evenly matched, but there are optional power-ups available throughout the maps that will give the players an edge.

Additionally, playable characters in the mode will be "beefy, upgraded versions of all eight characters" (presumably to ensure character balance), while 16 different unlockable variants will be available on top of standard, "all-around starter loadouts" for each character. Unlike the game other modes, this Versus mode allows you to pick an all-Rabbids team or pick a trio exclusively from the Mushroom Kingdom.

While I wish this update also came with online play, it's cool to see games like Mario + Rabbids getting support in the form of free little updates like this.
