Super Mario-Rabbids crossover game reportedly on the way

Players Report Problems With 'Mario Kart 8 Deluxe' Multiplayer

Players Report Problems With 'Mario Kart 8 Deluxe' Multiplayer

If all the rumors about the expected union of the two are true, fans will be able to enjoy a Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle crossover as a new RPS very soon on Nintendo Switch.

According to Kotaku, characters include Mario, Luigi, Yoshi and Peach, as well as four Rabbids dressed as the Nintendo icons.

Furthermore, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle will be a turn-based RPG with two-player local co-op, encompassing a "goofy sense of humor", according to art assets shared with Kotaku (that were asked not to be shared).

The game is set to release on the Nintendo Switch this August or September. This would also be a great build for going online and getting started with competitive and multiplayer modes if you're a novice.

Either way, it means that consumers are excited about new games for the Switch, which can only be a good thing for Nintendo.

Samsung Galaxy S8 Smartphones launched in India, prices starts at 57900 INR
While the Galaxy S8 is powered by a 3000 mAh battery, while the Galaxy S8 Plus comes with a larger 3500 mAh battery. Both phones are water-resistant and allow for biometric authentication with fingerprint and iris scanners.

The game was originally reported back in January by Laura Kate Dale, a journalist known for leaking information about the Switch before its release. You never know when Luigi-and an opportunity to make a viral gif-is just around the corner.

Nintendo also suggested that sales numbers for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe point to "an attach rate of 45 percent".

Rumours of a Ubisoft-Mario crossover emerged shortly before the full reveal of the Nintendo Switch.

Climbing to fifth in the all-formats chart was none other than The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, a feat attributed to a boost in Switch sales encouraged by the arrival of both Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and replenishment of console stock in the region. Taking a close look at the character classes, karts, wheels and other pieces available to you before you burn rubber could mean the difference between dragging along in last place and crossing the finish line as a victor.

But arguably, Mario Kart 8: Deluxe shines most when played with friends in split-screen mode.

Blues, Ducks must respond at home to even 2nd-round series
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, the Oilers are favored at home in today's game, as they are getting odds of -130 to win. They saw out their win as the Oilers' lead in the second-round series in the Western Conference was cut to 2-1.

The demand for the Switch game console remains strong.

Smart steering and auto-accelerate, however, "effectively take not only challenge, but also skill, out of the game". It's not a great look for a game where one of the major draws is multiplayer and for a company who has plans to roll-out a paid for subscription service for online play.

Ditching the repurposed stages from Mario Kart 8, Deluxe instead offers a selection of eight specific battle courses to duke it out on - five of which are brand new (including one themed around Splatoon), and three which have been pinched from older games.

Perhaps the biggest overhaul is to the Battle Modes, which in the original bordered on unplayable thanks to its tedious "joust" mechanics that were as much fun as getting slapped in the face with a wet sock.
