Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Ultra Challenge Pack

The most unlikely success story of Nintendo’s 2017, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, gets some ultra-challenging DLC as part of its season pass.

For the longest time, Nintendo has resisted DLC, and sharing Mario with anybody else. Now, they’ve published an Ubisoft-developed game featuring those infernal Rabbids, and are slinging DLC left, right and centre.

Today Ubisoft has both announced and released the Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Ultra Challenge Pack DLC.

It’s an extra-hard bundle of new content, including:

  • 8 new Ultra Hard Challenges inside each world’s Secret chapter.
  • A new co-op campaign composed of 5 exclusive co-op maps, featuring Chain Chomps, Tornados, Boos and Pyroclasts.

Oh. That was a short list, wasn’t it? When the press release opened up with bullet points, we thought it was going to be bigger than that. Still, the co-op mode sounds fun.

Here’s a video to give you a little taste of what’s in the Ultra Challenge Pack:

The Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Ultra Challenge Pack DLC is available now as part of the game’s season pass, which you can pick up now from the Nintendo eShop for £15.99.

Presumably that means there’s more to come, but we don’t know what that will be yet.
