More On: Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

The king of swing and golden bananas, Donkey Kong himself is coming to Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle this spring in a new story campaign that takes the game to a new world. From the looks of the trailer it appears to be DK Island, which makes sense, and the Rabbids' headgear makes it look like maybe they've teamed up with the Tiki Tak tribe from DK Country Returns. This DLC will be available as part of the season pass or for purchase separately.

I'll be honest, I'm not really a fan of XCOM style strategy or Rabbids so Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle was a hard pass for me. That said I'm glad it was such a surprise success and found an audience that loves it, and I'm happy Ubisoft and Nintendo continue to support it.
