Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle has been called "E3 2017's worst-kept secret" for good reason. We've already seen official art, and we already have a good idea of what the game's about.
The actual reveal happened today at Ubisoft's press conference, though. Er, try to act surprised! Big smiles -- yeah, that's it.
Here's another surprise: Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle looks like a lot of fun.
The Mario cast teams up with Ubisoft's Rabbids to save the Mushroom Kingdom, which has been thrown into disarray by the arrival of the Rabbids (surprise). It's a turn-based strategy game that alternates between combat and exploration. When the heat's on and Mario and his Rabbid pals encounter Rabbids Gone Bad (sounds like a video series), they can dispatch their foes with a combination of defensive and offensive abilities.
Most intriguingly, though Mario and the crew are limited in how far they can move around the map in each turn (as per tradition in most turn-based strategy games), the good guys can jump off each others' heads to expand their zone of movement. Nice!
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle comes to the Nintendo Switch on August 29.
