On Sunday, Ubisoft posted a video of their Paris event in commemoration of the developer’s 30-year anniversary. It included an inconspicuous piece of evidence that a Mario and Rabbids crossover is on its way.
As you can see above, three figures of Mario universe characters in Rabbids form were on display at Ubisoft’s Ubi30 celebrations in Paris.
On the man in the photo’s left, we can see the Mario Bros. with Rabbid ears, and on his right, Toad is visible.
Industry insider Laura Dale reported on November 19 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 “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, which explains why the Toad Rabbid is on display.
Expect a formal announcement at Nintendo’s Switch event on January 12.
