Article excerpt

After the Mushroom Kingdom is torn apart by a mysterious vortex, Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, and Yoshi team up with four Rabbids to bring back order in Ubisoft's Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. In a journey through four worlds, these eight heroes explore a new world filled with secrets and nods to classic Mario games. Players will outwit unpredictable enemies and solve puzzles along the way in this modern combat adventure designed exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. In a game as appealing in handheld mode as on the TV screen, fans can play everywhere, and even on the go, thanks to short game sessions. New in-game features can be unlocked with amiibo figures. This exciting mesh of two powerhouse franchises is rated E10+ for Cartoon Violence, Comic Mischief, and Mild Language.

Included in this remake is the Minion Quest: The Search for Bowser mode, which tells the story of the game from the perspective of Bowser's minions. Players can recruit characters to grow their own Minion army as they fight to locate their missing leader. The game is compatible with amiibo figures from the Super Mario series, while new figures--Goomba and Koopa Troopa--are soon to be released. For the Nintendo 3DS, the game is rated E for Everyone with Mild Cartoon Violence and Mild Suggestive Themes.
