Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is a real Nintendo Switch game, per reports

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe sales impress, fastest selling in franchise history

The game will be built using Ubisoft's Snowdrop engine and is described as a "crossover RPG" that's due for release in August or September.

In addition to characters from the Mario and Rabbids series of games, Battle Kingdom features turn-based combat and two-person co-operative multiplayer.

The sales figures released for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe include both physical and digital purchases, and show the game has an attach rate of 45 percent in the States - meaning nearly one in two Switch owners have already purchased a copy of the game.

Nintendo has not yet officially announced the RPG, though it is very likely that the game will be making an appearance at the upcoming E3 in June.

"Even if you didn't really care about Battle Mode, the smallest changes in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe refine an already great racing game".


Having launched only late last week, the game stood as an impressive buy-in for potential Switch owners that had waited for more games to hit the console. Once done, make sure to secure the first place in these Grand Prix cups and you will see the Gold Mario in place of Metal Mario on your character selection screen. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe sold more copies than that when it was released on April 28th.

Yes, this is a completely ridiculous way to join friends in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, but with so many people wanting to do so and not being able to, this seems like one of the only ways to do it at this point.

Speaking of which, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is also up there in the number five position.

When it comes to which characters will be playable, so far there are reportedly eight. "She loves Mario Maker, but she could never participate in that game because of the complexity of the controls". While both are optional, the site claims they can feel "jarring" and take much of the game's fun away from the player. The sales of these games will say a lot about the future of the Switch.
