Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle now features a great single-player mode as well as cooperative challenges, but Ubisoft isn't stopping there.
The new local versus mode lets two players pit their wits against each other on the same screen, using two separate Nintendo Switch controllers, or one pair of split Joy-cons. In the game's additional co-op challenges, players team up with a friend in local multiplayer, where they'll play three levels of difficulty, taking on adversaries as a team. "Each player has just three available actions per turn, and how you decide to invest them is a big part of the strategy here", a post on Ubiblog reads. You'll be able to pick a squad and weapons and take on another player locally. And if you're in a hurry you can limit battles to as few as seven turns, with time limits for each turn.
How to see this spectacular holiday meteor shower
From December 13-14, one of the most prolific celestial events will take place in the form of the Geminids Meteor Shower. The brightest stars Pollux and Castor in the constellation Gemini are named for the famous twins from Greek mythology.
Since launching back in August, Ubisoft's strategy crossover Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle has enjoyed critical acclaim by bringing together the unlikely combination of Mario and the Rabbids, and tomorrow players will get to enjoy a whole new side of the game with a competitive edge.
The mode will also feature adjustable options per match including timers, time or even removing all the items as you see fit. Nintendo's 2017 midas touch has also extended to an odd 3rd party collaboration with Ubisoft on Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle.
