Please take a look at this ridiculously awesome game from the folks at Ubisoft.

Nintendo is super protective of their intellectual property, which is why it was very surprising to see Ubisoft partner with the Big N on a title set in the Mario universe. Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle was officially announced at E3 2017 after a numerous rumors circulating about an XCOM-like featuring Mario characters. We are currently working on our review of the game, but in the mean time check out this gameplay footage.

        Same. It looks pretty good, but there's something about that price point that I just can't get myself to pull the trigger on it. Maybe, after release and reading a lot of reviews; which I suspect will all give it at least an 8/10.

          I am enjoying it, but I can understand the trepidation.

          Should have a review up soonish.

        Nobody was expecting a Rabbids crossover to be good. Biggest surprise of the show
