More On: E3 2017 Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

One of the big surprises at E3's press conference today was the unveiling of Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle.  As the title implies you have the Rabbids from Ubisoft invading the Mushroom world of Mario.  The twist is that the game isn't a platformer but rather a turn based strategy game that looks a lot like XCOM.  

This isn't a bad thing as the game mechanics fit really well and the game oozes charm and charisma.  The best part about the announcement is that the game will be out August 29th which is certainly good news for Switch owners who are looking for AAA titles to play.
