Guillemot first shared the following about the origins of the project:

It’s a busy time for Switch software updates. Not only is Nintendo providing patches for some of its older titles, but Ubisoft has also updated Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle.

Ubisoft hasn’t said too much about Mario + Rabbids’ sales on the record. However, as of last September, it was the best-selling third-party game on Switch.


Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle just had its one year anniversary. To celebrate, Ubisoft has shared a number of statistics, including the most picked roster, enemies defeated, more.

Here’s the full message from Ubisoft with an infographic:

With the impending release of Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle – Donkey Kong Adventure, Ubisoft had composer Grant Kirkhope and creative director Davide Soliani interview each other. In the video below, you’ll learn about how the two ended up coming together for the Switch game.

The Donkey Kong Adventure DLC for Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is pretty massive. Ubisoft has said that it’ll contain around ten hours of gameplay, but that wasn’t always the plan.

In an interview with Eurogamer, developer Davide Soliani revealed that the original plan was for the DLC to be “a small experience, two to three hours, one world.” That’s in contrast to how the content is now, with tons of gameplay, new music, and new elements for the combat system.

At E3 this week, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle and LEGO DC Super-Villains both had panels at E3 2018 in the E3 Coliseum. Recordings for both can be found below.
