Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle getting versus mode this Friday


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.

Cubs sign starting pitcher Tyler Chatwood to 3-year deal
Factoring in ballpark and season, Chatwood still finished last season with an above-average ERA+ of 107, per Baseball Reference . The Cubs have landed their first new starter this offseason in their effort to fortify a rotation that will see turnover.

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.
