Mario + Rabbids versus mode launches December 8

Mario + Rabbids versus mode launches December 8

Versus Mode will be playable locally between two players (by either using two controllers or one pair of Joy-Con controllers), but will contain some surprises that are different than the main game.

Each player picks a custom three-hero squad and has a breadth of attacks and abilities from across the campaign at their disposal.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is a brand new adventure to life featuring Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, and Yoshi, and four Rabbids heroes: Rabbid Mario, Rabbid Luigi, Rabbid Peach, and Rabbid Yoshi.

The Nintendo Switch is quickly becoming the go-to console for games with couch co-op and local multiplayer.




"Each player has just three available actions per turn, and how you decide to invest them is a big part of the strategy here", Ubisoft wrote in a blog post. For each character, the player will choose from among three unique pre-sets, with specific statistics and skills to create their own strategy.

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.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle now features a great single-player mode as well as cooperative challenges, but Ubisoft isn't stopping there. Customise your battles by limiting the number of turns, adding a time-limit, removing item drops, and more to adjust the scale of your tactical experience.
