Versus Mode Being Added To ‘Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle’

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, the wacky partnership between Nintendo and Ubisoft, is getting a brand new mode. Find the details below, via Ubisoft’s Blog.

How sharp are your Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle tactics? Sharp enough to test against another human player? You’ll be able to find out on Friday, December 8, when the free Mario + Rabbids Versus mode arrives. Pitting you against a friend on the same system (and playable either with two controllers or with a pair of Joy-Cons), Versus challenges players to hand-pick their three-hero squads, and use every attack and technique available to them to claim victory across small, surprise-filled maps.

 

There’s a catch, however. Each player has just three available actions per turn, and how you decide to invest them is a big part of the strategy here. You may be accustomed to moving, attacking, and using techniques for each of your heroes during every turn in the campaign and co-op, but Versus is a different story. Will you move all your characters into strategic positions, or will you spend all your actions to, say, move Luigi into a sniping spot, activate his motion-attacking Steely Gaze, and then open fire on a juicy target? Whatever you do, you can bet your opponent will be watching your every move, so be careful not to leave yourself vulnerable.”

Will you be diving back into Kingdom Battle to try out Versus mode? Comment below, let us know.
