Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Gets A Versus Mode!

This just came in, Ubisoft announced an all-new Versus mode for their Mario and Rabbid cross-over, Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle.

The new update does not cost a penny and you can now go head-to-head with your friends through this local game mode. Players can take advantage of the Joy-Con pair or the Nintendo Switch Pro Controllers and play on the same screen. However, it did not state that you can play against another player who has a Nintendo Switch. We have reached out to Ubisoft for comment.

But aside from that, here are the full details of the latest update:

  • Players will freely pick three different heroes among the eight from the main game. And for each character, they will choose among three unique pre-sets with specific statistics and skills to create their own strategy.
  • Surprising and random bonus items are dispatched on the battlefields, confering additional actions, double damage or other advantages to the player who achieves to get them.
  • Every battle can be customized with various settings, from adding a timer or limiting the number of turns of the battle, to removing all the items for a pure tactical experience.
