Laura Dale of LetsPlayVideoGames reported today that according to her sources at Ubisoft and Nintendo, the Switch will be launching alongside Mario RPG: Invasion of the Rabbids.
This new Ubisoft-developed title (“under the watchful monitoring of Nintendo) apparently conforms to Nintendo’s standards as far as how their characters and iconography are used by third parties.
Laura Dale says that “the title will focus on the Mario universe being invaded by Ubisoft’s Rabbids characters, some friend and some foe, and will feature a new Bowser form based around the design of the Rabbids as a recurring boss enemy”.
There should also be many cameos from the Mario series’ cast.
It will also have a neat feature: a quicksave system that lets you save your game on short notice if your Switch battery is low when you’re on the go.
Mario RPG: Invasion of the Rabbids should have a playable demo ready for the press this January, and will apparently also feature in Nintendo’s January events showcasing their new system.
