OverviewOverview

Mario and Rabbids Kingdom Battle is a chess-like strategy game where you control cartoon rabbits (the Rabbids) and Nintendo characters in turn-based battles with fantastical weapons through four different worlds.

It looks and sounds like a game for youngsters, but beneath this bright saccharine exterior is a deep strategy game not a million miles away from games like XCOM. You control Mario as he teams up with 4 “rabbid” rabbit heroes as they battle enemies. Each of these has their own stats, moves and techniques that are all effective in different sorts of battles.
