[RUMOR] Ubisoft working on a Rabbids and Super Mario crossover RPG

Post by Gameguy1996 on Fri Nov 18, 2016 11:39 pm

In a crazy rumor the Rabbids and Mario might be crossing over in a RPG game for the Switch. The game is expected to be released at launch.

This comes from a LetsPlayVideoGames report...

- according to sources at Ubisoft and Nintendo
- Switch will launch alongside a new Ubisoft-developed turn based RPG, with the name suggesting it will be a crossover of the Raving Rabbids and Mario series
- currently under the working title ''Mario RPG: Invasion of the Rabbids'', is being developed under the watchful monitoring of Nintendo
- ensuring that it both hits launch day and that it conforms to Nintendo’s own internal specifications for how Mario characters and iconography should be presented
- title will focus on the Mario universe being invaded by Ubisoft’s Rabbids characters, some friend and some foe
- will feature a new Bowser form based around the design of the Rabbids as a recurring boss enemy
- numerous cameo appearances from the Mario series’ best known characters
- core party will feature numerous, more minor characters
- is a particular focus on Yoshi as a primary party member, alongside a playable Rabbid
- title will have a playable demo ready for press to experience in January
- will feature a quicksave system to ensure that saving is possible on short notice if the battery on the Switch handheld is running low
- part of the planned press demo includes the JoyCons vibrating to imply a Rabbid jumping into and out of them from the TV or handheld screen
- idea is to imply your system is infested with Rabbids, and that they could at any time jump out of your controller and interfere with gameplay
- title is going to be one of the cornerstone trailers shown when Nintendo details the system further in January
- Nintendo intends to pitch the project to consumers as a Mario RPG project in collaboration with Ubisoft, in spite of Ubisoft doing most of the work on development

This would be such a crazy game if it's true. I also think there just using Mario's name for more sales and to toss in Bowser as the main bad guy again.

Okay this whole idea is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard and that's honestly exactly why I think it's totally true. Something like this would just be such a wild guess otherwise, even if it doesn't turn out exactly like this, something clearly is happening.

Rabbids? Do people even remember what they are? I'm trying to think of when they were last relevant. 

Really hoping this isn't true, while I was hoping we could see more Mario RPG games this isn't what I meant.

real talk rabbids are the worst please please do't be true

This is one of the craziest rumors that I have heard in the video game industry. I'm actually curious to see how it works if it ever gets released, really.
