Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

Unless you were living under a rock in the weeks and months leading to E3 (or reading exclusively this website for your gaming news), you definitely knew about Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle before Ubisoft and Nintendo officially revealed it. That’s right: news of the game did leak ahead of its reveal, which is not an uncommon occurence in the video game business.

But how did the developers feel about that leak, and especially about fans reactions before they could even see the full picture? Eurogamer actually went and asked them (and more precisely David Soliani, Creative Director, and Grant Kirkhope, Music Director)!

Here’s the video:

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle (Switch) comes out on August 29th in Europe and North America, and next year in Japan.
