More On: Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle E3 2018

First up, if you don't recognize my grammatically bloated reference in the title of this article, that means you need to get your hands on a Nintendo 64 and play Donkey Kong 64.

But now, let's get to some news. 

Ubisoft had a great show yesterday at E3, and one of the highlights was the first gameplay trailer of the DLC Donkey Kong Adventure for Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

From the press release: the DLC sees Donkey Kong, Rabbid Peach, and Rabbid Cranky (take it to the fridge) journeying "across four brand-new environments and fight in a new epic battle against a vengeful Rabbid Kong who uses his new powers to take over a mysterious island". 

New fighting abilities include "Donkey Kong's grab-and-throw skill that propels friends, foes, and cover stones" as well as "Rabbid Cranky's gift of shooting enemies mid-air", some of which you can see in the trailer. 

Two Shark-Rabbid enemies are another highlight of the trailer. Described as "massive and unpredictable bosses", they "will do anything to achieve their Machiavellian goal".

So intellectual. 

Donkey Kong Adventure releases June 26th, and on the 25th for Season Pass owners. Watch the gameplay trailer below.
