What a mystery this is
Mystery & Rabbids
It's common knowledge that Ubisoft are the ones behind the ever-intriguing Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle on the Switch, so goodness only knows what could be inside a suspiciously blank box from their UK headquarters. Obviously we know, as we had to open it to record the video, but we wanted to keep it as much as a surprise...
Exploration, turn-based strategy at the core of the experience
It's been the worst-kept secret in quite some time, but Ubisoft finally formally lifted the lid on Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle during its E3 press conference. The previous extensive leaks were, as expected, on the money - Ubisoft has no doubt been hunting moles for a number of weeks...
Well of course...
If Ubisoft has any self awareness. a prospective reveal of Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle will be accompanied by self-deprecating remarks around the company's inability to keep secrets. With the Ubisoft Press Conference around the corner a listing has popped up on Walmart for a 'Day 1 Edition'. You can see a screengrab below, with...
Ubisoft has been keen for a while
Ubisoft is a successful company, and like all money-spinning corporations is always looking out for potential opportunities to produce hit games. There are irrepressible rumours / leaks of Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle for Nintendo Switch, so it's only natural to wonder about past attempts to bring the franchises...
What a mystery this is
Perhaps one of the worst kept secrets in the industry right now is the existence of Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, an upcoming crossover RPG which has been known in one way or another for months now. After a recent leak which showed off a bunch of official artwork for the game, its existence is in little doubt, though...
It's one of the oldest rumours around upcoming Nintendo Switch games, and now it seems some art is doing the rounds. We're referring to a game reportedly called Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, a title that to we're led to believe is real and set for this year. The following fuzzy image was initially doing the rounds. For those that...
The rumours are true?
A short while ago we reported on the rumour that Ubisoft was working on a title which places the cast of the Super Mario series in the world of the Raving Rabbids, and that it was set to be a Nintendo Switch launch title. This rumour has been given additional weight by the fact that Mario, Luigi and Toad appear in Ubisoft's...
Could this be Ubisoft's "surprise" secret game?
Not so long ago Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot teased that the company had a "surprise" game in development, and a recent rumour seems to suggest that it's an RPG which combines the world of Rabbids with Super Mario. According to LetsPlayVideoGames - a prime source for Switch rum
Three extra days of Rabbid fun
Last week we reported that the Rabbids would be rumbling on to European 3DS consoles on 16th November. Today Ubisoft has confirmed that Rabbids Rumble will be launching on 13th November in North America, three days before it hits European shores. Rabbids Rumble features over 100 crazy Rabbids to capture and collect,...
We knew it
A few weeks back we unearthed an age rating for Rabbids Rumble and Ubisoft gave us no comment. Now we know the game's real, as we have a press release and assets. Rabbids Rumble has minigames — of course — but also has a turns-based combat system that promises "intense battles mixing tactics with the Rabbid’s classic wackiness"...
Ubisoft is preparing another outing for the Rabbids, as we've unearthed a rating for Rabbids Rumble. The Australian Classification Board slapped a G rating on the game, citing "very mild crude humour", which doesn't really give much away. The rating doesn't specify which formats the game is heading to, but as there have...
Bwwaaaagh, of course
If you wondered why Ubisoft's latest outing for its chaotic creatures, Raving Rabbids Travel in Time, only made its way to Wii this might go some way to explaining: the white terrors are heading to 3DS instead. Famitsu has the game pegged for a Japanese release on March 24th, but unlike its Wii counterpart it looks set to be a 2D platform adventure, with the lapine layabouts..
Explosive toilet rolls included
Raving Rabbids Travel in Time has probably given historians plenty of bother with its anachronistic view of history, but now it can similarly perplex anyone with a web browser with the official Flash minigame from Ubisoft. The aim of the game is to throw explosive toilet rolls at targets, taking them all out as quickly and with as few throws as possible. It's..
Chickens, eggs, arcades and cake
To celebrate the release of upcoming Raving Rabbids In Time for Wii Ubisoft and Nintendo Life were proud to present a very special competition, with three sets of tickets available, each set lets one winner plus two friends and a parent to attend a special Rabbids sleep over in the Science Museum. Contestants had to answer the following question: Where would you..
New trailer takes on the Wild West
A group of white rabbits found Excalibur and met Julius Caesar, and now they're in the Wild West taking on outlaw Billy the Kid. It can only be Raving Rabbids: Travel in Time. The first online-enabled party game in the series, Travel in Time plots a course through various times in human history and lets the Rabbids...
Rabbids back in party mode
The new Rabbids title was announced at E3, and now Ubisoft has unleashed a further set of details about Raving Rabbids Travel in Time. After a brief spell spent in the world of 3D adventures in Rabbids Go Home, the white monsters are now back in minigame territory as they explore the fabric of space in a washing machine. As well as promising the usual range of new..
Rabbids Go Home stamped with new, higher rating
A few weeks ago we hit you with the big news that Ubisoft's Rabbid adventure was facing recall from select UK retailers due to "potentially offensive content." Now you'll be pleased to hear Rabbids Go Home has reappeared on shop shelves with a new, higher PEGI 12 rating. Considering the previous rating was a PEGI 7 it may not seem a huge..
UPDATED - Recall not happening says Ubisoft, official statement on its way
We've just received some early reports that Ubisoft is recalling Rabbids Go Home from UK stores due to it containing "language that some users may find offensive". Actual details are hard to come by, but we'd hazard a guess that the line in question is "No penetration allowed in this zone". We could be..
Souped-up trolley hitting UK cities
Game-themed cars are nothing new - everyone from Pikachu to Sonic has had their face plastered on a car over the years - but a game-themed shopping trolley capable of 70mph is definitely something we haven't seen before. Add a huge Rabbid figure to the back - in mid-BWAAAH pose, of course - and drive the trolley through the streets of London and you've got one of..
Put this in your trolley!
There's only one possible conclusion to be drawn from Rabbids Go Home - it's mental. Anyone involved in its development should probably be sectioned under the Mental Health Act, such is the scale of the crazy acts featured in this first traditional adventure game for the Rabbids. Of course, if you've been following our...
