Ubisoft’s Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle has been awarded Best Game at the 2018 British Academy Children’s Awards.
The turn-based tactical role-playing game managed to fend off competition from three Sony games in Everybody’s Golf, the madcap mini-game-packed Frantics and action-packed platformer sequel Knack 2.
The award is well deserved, and we, too, showered our own praise on the game in our Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle review, concluding:
“Whether you still struggle to comprehend the unexpected collision that the irreverent Rabbids have had with the Mushroom Kingdom or not, in Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, Ubisoft Milan readily proves at every turn that even the wackiest ideas can result in a sensational experience. With infectious humour, it will soon win you over to prove itself absolutely unmissable.”
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is now available exclusively on Nintendo Switch worldwide.
