Are you aware of the fact that Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle isn’t actually out in Japan yet? The much-lauded game has been available in the West for a couple of weeks now, but hasn’t hit Nintendo’s home turf yet. We’ve known for a while now that Nintendo are publishing the game themselves in Japan, and that it would be released sometime next year, but in the recent Nintendo Direct, a concrete date has finally been revealed.

Digital Foundry is back in action with a new technical analysis. In its latest video, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle gets the spotlight.

One aspect Digital Foundry brings up is resolution. When docked, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle runs at 900p. The resolution drops to 600p when playing in portable mode. However, this is masked by good implementation of anti-aliasing, so in handheld more in particular, the resolution drop isn’t really noticeable. Smooth edges and depth of field also help.
