Nintendo Publishing Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle in Japan and Korea in Early 2018

After the surprise success of Mario + Rabbids Battle Kingdom in North America and Europe, Nintendo is releasing the title in both Japan and Korea.

The game was developed by Ubisoft and published by Nintendo exclusively on the Switch. The company’s decision to release the game in its home market denotes that it has faith in the title. It was received well critically, with many praising its unique mashup of the stoic Mario characters and the potty-mouthed Rabbids. The tactical combat was also incredibly strong and deep, especially for a game with so much charm and style bursting out of every seam.

In our review, we praised its sense of humor and gameplay, remarking that they combined to create an unexpected and unforgettable experience.

Mario + Rabbids Battle Kingdom will release in Japan and Korea January 18, 2018 exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
