In the surreal world of video game marketing, Ubisoft are often front and centre. Last year they even made a headset, the ‘Nosulus Rift’, that fires farts rather than hi-def visuals into your face regions to promote South Park: The Fractured But Whole.
Therefore, it’s no surprise that they’re doubling down on one of their latest titles. Announced at E3, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is essentially cute X-Com. Rayman will be twisting in his grave to miss out on this one in favour of his lesser lupine minions, who will be rubbing shoulders with Nintendo’s most precious IP.
Ubisoft have opened an Instagram account for one of the ridiculous characters, namely Rabbid Peach, the alternate universe version of the Mushroom Kingdom Princess. If it wasn’t evident enough in the trailer, she’s tech-savvy enough to be snapping selfies left right and centre, and why not let her have an account to share these works of art to all of her… uh… fans?!
If you just can’t wait for more, you won’t have to wait long to play the game, as it will be dropping on the 29th of August this year for Nintendo Switch. For more coverage of Kingdom Battle keep it locked right here at Quillstreak!
