Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle
Gameplay: The Mario/Rabbids strategy mash-up game we never knew we wanted is here! The Rabbids are transported into the Mushroom Kingdom, and they have to team up with Mario and his mates to take down other Rabbids that have turned bad! The plot isn’t too important – all you need to know is that Mario and the Rabbids have guns now, and it’s crazy and goofy and funny! When you encounter baddies, the game moves into a turn based strategy game, where you guide three characters through battle. You move between cover, use special abilities, and have your characters work together to beat the bad Rabbids! This is not at all what you might expect from a Mario or a Rabbids game, but it totally works! This game is smart, clever, and funny, and although it’s not quite as good a strategy game as Fire Emblem it’s still super cool! Graphics: The Mushroom Kingdom looks amazing on the Switch! Mario and Rabbids got us super excited for Super Mario Odyssey, because as much as we like the crazy rabbits, seeing Mario and his pals looking so good is a real highlight! There are heaps of LOLs in the background, so make sure you keep your eyes peeled!
A totally unexpected, cool game!
Not as deep as Fire Emblem!
