Ubisoft has announced that Nintendo will publish Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle in Japan and Korea early next year.
The Nintendo Switch exclusive was developed by Ubisoft in partnership with Nintendo and presents a strategy adventure with Mario and pals when the Rabbids unexpectedly invade the Mushroom Kingdom.
“We were very happy to see that players across Europe enjoyed the unexpected combination of Mario, Rabbids and strategy in Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle for Nintendo Switch,” enthused Nintendo of Europe president Satoru Shibata. “We hope that players in Japan and Korea will also enjoy the game when it is released there in January next year.”
Ubisoft EMEA executive director Alain Corre adds: “Nintendo publishing Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle in Japan and Korea shows that they appreciate the quality of the Rabbids brand and this game, and have high expectations for them in markets they know better than anyone else.
“Nintendo has been an amazing partner throughout the game’s development game, and now, thanks to them, Switch owners in Japan will join in on the fun with millions of other players around the world.”
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch in Japan and Korea on 18th January 2018.
