Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

A Delightful New Take On Mario
by Jeff Marchiafava
Concept:

Combine Team Mario with Ubisoft's own demented Rabbids for a lighthearted but challenging take on the turn-based tactical strategy genre


Graphics:

Ubisoft adopts Nintendo's style of crisp, cartoony visuals while throwing in its own underpants-laden twists to the world design


Sound:

The mash-up cast offers up all the grunts and exclamations you'd expect. Grant Kirkhope's musical score perfectly punctuates the action


Playability:

The controls can be finicky during some timed block-pushing puzzles, but mapping out your strategic offense maneuvers works great


Entertainment:

While Kingdom Battle's puzzles won't win any awards, the robust selection of challenging tactical battles entertains from beginning to end


Replay:

Moderate

Ubisoft surprised gamers when it announced not only was it working on a Mario title for the Nintendo Switch, but that it would be transporting the mustachioed plumber and friends to the turn-based battlegrounds of the tactical strategy genre. While that may sound like an ill fit for gaming's biggest kid-friendly mascot, Kingdom Battle succeeds by not only what it cribs from the genre's leaders, but also by what it adds to the mix.

Kingdom Battle mashes up the Mario and Rabbids universes with the flimsiest of storylines. A material-merging VR headset falls into the hands of the time-traveling rabbids, who waste no time in accidentally transporting themselves to the Mushroom Kingdom, jumbling up the two worlds in the process. The onus falls on Mario to clean up the mess, along with some of his old friends, a few helpful rabbids, and a Roomba-esque robot named Beep-0, which you use to plot your moves during battle.

The madcap adventure plays out across four uniquely themed worlds, each of which offers 15-plus tactical battles against "corrupted" rabbid forces. Kingdom Battle draws no shortage of inspiration from the genre-leading XCOM series, from the navigational aids and overlays that make planning your moves a breeze to some character abilities like Hero Sight, which allows Mario to snipe a moving enemy on their turn (why they didn't call it Marioverwatch is beyond me).

But Kingdom Battle is more than a kid-friendly XCOM clone. Your squad of heroes is more mobile than in most tactics games, and can perform dash attacks and head stomps while on the move to supplement their weapon attacks. Characters also have their own special abilities (including the aforementioned Hero Sight or enemy-attracting Magnet Dance), giving each of your three characters a trio of maneuvers to perform every turn. As such, each battle plays out like an intriguing optimization puzzle, as you swap back and forth between characters' movements, weapon attacks, and abilities to set up the best team combos and maximize the damage you inflict on enemies. Additional Mario-themed elements like sewer pipes that transport you around the battlefield and chain chomps that take a bite out of the nearest character offer more wrinkles to the gameplay, and reinforce Kingdom Battle's unique identity.

The Mushroom Kingdom has been torn apart by a mysterious vortex, transporting the chaotic Rabbids into this once-peaceful land. To restore order, Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, and Yoshi must team up with a whole new crew: four Rabbids heroes! Together, they will battle with weapons through four worlds filled with combat, puzzles, and unpredictable enemies.

Developed exclusively for the Nintendo Switch system, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is the best of the Mario and Rabbids franchises, combining all that you love about Mario's iconic universe with the side-splitting antics of the Rabbids.
