The studio behind the game, Ubisoft, revealed both a new cinematic trailer and a sneak peek at some gameplay on Saturday. The game even received an official launch date and will come in sometime in 2022. The official announcement at Ubisoft Forward followed a leak hours before on Nintendo’s online store.
Nintendo originally announced the first game, Mario + Rabbids title, Kingdom Battle, at Ubisoft’s press conference at E3 2017. And the game turned out to be one of the best early games to come on Nintendo Switch. It mixed the elements from the Mario and Rabbids characters with solid yet accessible X-COM-style tactical action. People often call it “a shockingly good Nintendo Switch strategy game.”
