Ubisoft announce a new local versus mode for Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle.
Ubisoft are releasing a free update for the super-cute, turn-based strategy game, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle.
The new local versus mode lets two players pit their wits against each other on the same screen, using two separate Nintendo Switch controllers, or one pair of split Joy-cons.
Players can select a party of three heroes from the game’s roster of eight, and apply one of three different skill and statistic load-outs. Additional settings allow for the customisation of turns, timers or items.
The new mode is a welcome addition to a fantastic game, and once again shows Ubisoft delicately balancing the mix of paid and free add-on content for their games.
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Versus Mode will be available to download on Nintendo Switch from December 8, 2017.
