Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Gets Couch Co-Op

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Co-Op

Ubisoft is challenging their Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle players to check just how sharp their skills are in the new co-op Versus mode that arrives tomorrow, December 8. It allows you to battle a friend on the same system (with two controllers or a pair of Joy-Cons), hand-pick three-hero squads and use every technique and trick from your sleeve to claim victory across special surprise-filled maps. Instead of the usual levelled-up campaign characters, both players will instead choose from upgraded versions of all eight heroes with a possibility to pick an all-Mushroom Kingdom or all-Rabbid Kingdom teams.

Players can continue playing with good all-rounded started equipment load outs or specialize in one of the 16 unlockable variants. There will be optional power-ups scattered around the map that can swing the balance one way or another.

From the blog post:

There’s a catch, however. Each player has just three available actions per turn, and how you decide to invest them is a big part of the strategy here. You may be accustomed to moving, attacking, and using techniques for each of your heroes during every turn in the campaign and co-op, but Versus is a different story. Will you move all your characters into strategic positions, or will you spend all your actions to, say, move Luigi into a sniping spot, activate his motion-attacking Steely Gaze, and then open fire on a juicy target? Whatever you do, you can bet your opponent will be watching your every move, so be careful not to leave yourself vulnerable.
