There’s no doubt that one of the major surprises in 2017 has been the emergence of Mario + Rabbids as a genuinely interesting title. The Nintendo Switch game, developed by Ubisoft, looks set to be an impressive outing for the plumber. Now it’s been revealed that the game will include a Season Pass, which will release alongside the game
Outlining the content gamers can expect in this, Ubisoft revealed;
Today, Ubisoft® announced the post-launch plans for Mario + Rabbids® Kingdom Battle, which will include new weapons, solo challenges, co-op maps and brand new story content.
Season Pass owners will be able to enjoy three pieces of DLC:
8 unique steampunk weapons will be available at the launch of the game, each one with its own statistics. These items will be exclusive for season pass owners.
This autumn, players will be able to test their skills with new solo challenges, or with a friend, through additional co-op maps.
In 2018, players will be able to play through brand new story content.
The season pass will land on August 29th, 2017 – alongside the Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle game.
This is perfectly fine. I don’t like Season Passes (and from the sounds of the press release, you’ll need to buy the whole thing to get any of the DLC) but I guess that’s just the way things are in the industry right now. 8 weapons does seem a touch excessive mind you.
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle was arguably the biggest surprise of this years E3. The game’s announcement came during the Ubisoft E3 conference, where Mario developer Miyamoto made a personal appearance. The reaction to the game was positive all around – with the series seemingly taking more than a few nods from the excellent XCOM series.
We’re excited to see the game in action, and will have a review around the time the game launches!
