E3 2017: Mario+Rabbids Kingdom Battle Gameplay Revealed For Nintendo Switch

We got a surprise today at the E3 2017 PC Gaming Show when Yves Guillemot, the co-founder, and CEO of Ubisoft came on stage to nearly immediately reveal the company's latest project- a collaboration with Nintendo for an all new Mario game. Ubisoft and Nintendo partnered for Switch and this is the first major title to arrive as part of their deal.

It's a Nintendo Switch exclusive and although the Princess Peach Rabbid is adorable, we're unconvinced about how it's going to appeal to a wider audience.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole didn't have any news to share - we already knew its October 17 release date. Ancel did a breakdown of the new trailer here. Development is being handled by Ubisoft in Europe and will play unlike any Mario game we've seen before.

Assassin's Creed IV was the lone pirate entry in the franchise, and Ubisoft is building on that to create an entirely new series based on the pirate life. It launches in Spring 2018. Starlink: Battle for Atlas, The Starlink: Battle for Atlas logo, Ubisoft, and the Ubisoft logo are trademarks of Ubisoft Entertainment in the United States and/or other countries. On the exploration side, the game will feature at least 4 world environments to discover, and environments will also include puzzles and secret zones.

Starlink: Battle for Atlas is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch.

The Far Cry 5 gameplay demo featured Boomer the dog.

Here's the announcement trailer.

This one had been rumoured for a while and actually leaked in the middle of Ubisoft's press conference, but now it's safely out in the open.

A lot of this was along the lines of what Stephen saw back when the game was announced.

Michel Ancel took the stage and with tears of joy thanked fans and Yves Guillemot for believing in this project, nearly 15 years after the first game of the trilogy was released. Entering into battle, it's pretty much what you'd expect; there's shades of XCOM, and to a lesser extent, Advance Wars and Fire Emblem, with cover, overwatch, team up attacks, and so on.
