Ubisoft launched a “Gold Edition” for Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle on the Switch eShop today. It’s nothing really too special since it just includes the game and the season pass.
There is something interesting in the listing, however. Ubisoft says that the DLC coming in early 2018 will include “an exclusive world featuring a new hero”. Unfortunately, no other details are provided.
The last round of Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle dropped in October. It provided players with access to the Ultra Challenge Pack, featuring a new co-op campaign and five exclusive co-op maps.

As we know, Ubisoft announced its latest financial results this past week. We have more information from the call that was held after the initial report was posted.
Early on in the call, Ubisoft said that Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle outperformed its own forecasts. The game is also once again confirmed to be the best-selling third-party title on Switch.
It was also pointed out that the growing / successful install base on Switch should have many benefits for Ubisoft. As a result, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is expected to have a longer than usual sales curve.

Ubisoft commented on the status of Switch during its financial call this past week.
