Update: WWG has now posted the full piece of art:
Original: The first piece of art has leaked from Ubisoft and Nintendo’s upcoming collaboration game for Switch, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. Twitter user FatalFlowey posted the image that shows one Rabbid wearing a Princess Peach outfit.
Earlier this month, Kotaku reported that Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle would be launching in August or September. The site also mentioned having seen art featuring “Mario and crew wielding guns that shoot laser beams.” We can confirm that the image above is a small section of that asset.
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is apparently being build with Ubisoft’s Snowdrop engine. The game is said to be including turn-based combat, two-player local co-op, and a “goofy sense of humor,” according to Kotaku’s article.

These will be a really great addition for when Nintendo releases their plans for Virtual Console on Switch. Keep in mind that these controllers can also be used with Windows, Mac, Steam, iOS and the NES Classic Edition if we have the right cable.
