Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle for Nintendo Switch LEAKED

Nintendo and Ubisoft cross over in 'Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle'

Lots of people loved Assassin's Creed: Black Flag, so Ubisoft apparently chose to give players a piracy-focused game called Skull & Bones. It's been a while since the Mario series has went back to the RPG genre. You'll be switching between adventure mode and battle mode, with the combat taking the form of turn-based combat within a set arena against Rabbids gone bad. Mario + Rabbids feature a number of unique mechanics like pipes you can move through to flank enemies, team based moves, and character based weapons. It is an exclusive title for the Nintendo Switch, and it launches on August 29. The game will be releasing in Autumn of 2018, and will release on PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and also on traditional platforms like PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Ubisoft displayed a lot of high quality software planned for 2017 and beyond.

Following in the footsteps of Skylanders, Lego Dimensions and the now dead Disney Infinity, Ubisoft is diving into the world of toys to life games. It looks to bridge the gap between movies and games and is a destructive tale of a man's obsession as you explore his digitally recreated memories.

Figurines are now available and the game itself comes out on August 29th exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. Grace Armstrong will be your sniper, Nick Rye will bring death from above, and Boomer will be your loyal dog companion as you infiltrate and raise hell. For the 2016-17 fiscal year Ubisoft generated sales of €1,460 million.

The game itself looks neat enough, but I don't know if I need more stuff cluttering up my desk. With the sun reflecting on the monitor screen, it made for an awkward and unimpressive showing of the new Assassin's Creed game. Compared to previous years, this year's dance number was short and over quickly.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 was finally confirmed at the event, to great applause.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 is happening indeed, and developers had a long cinematic trailer to confirm it. Its truly ridiculous cinematic trailer looks like Inception: Extreme Sports Edition, which probably isn't literally representative of the game, but remains gorgeous.
