Some took the Mario and Luigi Rabbid forms in this image as a tease

Remember before the Switch launched and there were rumours of Ubisoft releasing a Mario/Rabbids crossover for the system? Well its surfaced again from known Nintendo leaker Emily Rogers, who has given more details on the supposed 2017 game. In her latest blog post, she responds to a reader question about the unexpected crossover, speaking about having eight playable characters alongside each having their own weapons.

The full blog post reads:

"Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle" has eight playable characters — including Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Yoshi — and they each have their own sci-fi weapons, laser guns, arm cannons, etc. But you don't control the characters — you control Tuttorio, a small floating dish, to guide them through the worlds. There is also co-op multiplayer.

Still no word from Nintendo or Ubisoft on the game's existence, yet with E3 now only around the corner could we be seeing a reveal there? Emily Rogers seems to think so pinning the release for August 2017. Until then speculation can only continue.

What do you think to the Mario/Rabbids crossover? Do you think it's likely, and do you even want this to happen?
