Ubisoft & Nintendo have announced that Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle will receive a season pass with three pieces of DLC. The season pass will cost $19.99 and will have content ready to download on day one. The content available to those who purchase the season pass when Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom battle releases next Tuesday, August 29th, will be eight steampunk-style weapons. Later this fall, season pass owners will be given new solo and cooperative maps to play through and master.
Most intriguing, however, is the final pack that will arrive sometime in 2018. This DLC will be new “unexpected story content”. No further details were given, but hopefully it will bring in more Mario characters or even other Nintendo characters and worlds into the mix. Hey, with Mario & Rabbids combining for a game, anything else is possible!
Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle launches for the Nintendo Switch on August 29th, 2017 and will bring together the world of Mario and Rabbids in a turn-based tactical role-playing game, very akin to games like XCOM. I had the chance to try this game at E3 and came away very impressed with its charm and deep systems. This is one title you should keep your eyes on when it launches next week.
