MyGamingBoulevard has posted a video unboxing the Mario + Rabbids Ubicollectibles figurines. We saw a couple of these over the weekend, but the full set is now here. Check out the unboxing video below.

We’ve got our hands on some new character art from Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. Find the images in the gallery below.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle has a huge musical talent on board in Grant Kirkhope. Kirkhope worked on many N64 classics back in the day, including Banjo-Kazooie. He’s also more recently been involved with the likes of Yooka-Laylee.

In this month’s issue of GamesMaster, Kirkhope talked about his approach to making music for Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. Instead of trying to emulate Nintendo’s style with Mario music, he instead “had to try to come up with some kind of way of getting that crazy Rabbids thing into this Mario game – and a little bit of me in there as well”. The game may start out sounding a bit “Nintendo-ish”, but later evolves, and Kirkhope believes that players will be surprised as they reach the end.

Kirkhope told GamesMaster:

Alongside Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, Ubisoft is preparing some special figurines based on characters in the game. Take a closer look at two of them in the video below.

Ubisoft has now come out with a new Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle trailer specifically focusing on Rabbid Luigi. Watch it below.

The latest episode of the IGN Show featured Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. Creative director Davide Soliani stopped by, and a new co-op map was shown. Find the relevant segment embedded below.


Update (8/14): The Rayman Legends Definitive Edition demo is now live in North America.


Original (8/13): A demo for Rayman Legends Definitive Edition popped up on the European Switch eShop last month. However, it went live a bit early. Ubisoft intended to officially launch the download on August 14.

In Europe, the demo has now returned. You can find it by accessing the Rayman Legends Definitive Edition page in the “Coming Soon” section of the eShop.

The same demo will be available on Monday in North America as well. We’ll keep you updated when it’s live.

With Ubisoft officially publishing the Rayman Legends Definitive Edition demo, the original version from July has been updated. You can see how the old and new releases compare below.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle creative director Davide Soliani shared a little nugget about the game’s performance on Twitter. When Switch is docked, the resolution will be 900. Like almost every other Switch game, it’s 720p in portable mode.

We’ve also pretty much known that Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle runs at 30 frames per second. But if you needed further confirmation, Davide has offered just that. Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is 30 FPS both docked and when playing on Switch.

Nintendo has added a listing for Rayman Legends Definitive Edition on the eShop. Thanks to that, we have the game’s file size.

Rayman Legends Definitive Edition won’t be too big of a download at 2.9GB. Still, physical will be an option as well in stores. The game launches on September 12.
