Ubisoft is Making a New Rabbids Party Game, But You Might Not Get to Play It

Seems it's only announced for China at the moment.

The Rabbids are back on the Switch, but right now, it seems like only in one region. A new party game starring Ubisoft's uncontrollable party animals is coming to China.

Shared by industry analyst Daniel Ahmad on Twitter, this new Rabbids game looks like a four-player party game developed by Ubisoft Chengdu. The trailer shows several players using the Joy-Con motion controls to shake down a tree or play lava bumper-cars.

It also seems to draw heavy inspiration from Journey to the West. We'll see more at the upcoming ChinaJoy convention, but right now, it seems set for only China. It's likely this is part of Nintendo's push to finally put the Nintendo Switch in China, though hopefully we'll get a chance to see it come over to US shores. This Rabbids game feels fairly reminiscent of Super Mario Party, including the fist-pump gestures and jockeying for the front spot in selfies of the four players. It'd be cool to see what the Rabbids take on Mario Party looks like.

The Nintendo Switch is having a strong year, outselling other consoles and seeing games like Super Mario Maker 2 and Fire Emblem: Three Houses make waves. However, it's also dealt with continuing issues related to Joy-Con drift and the overall handheld experience.

We'll see how the rest of 2019 pans out for the Switch, and whether we get to see the Rabbids come over to other regions. Hopefully, we'll be throwing a Rabbids party before the year is out.
