Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle in Japan and Korea will be published by Nintendo on 18 January, 2018. The game was developed by Ubisoft in partnership with Nintendo and is already the best-selling third-party title on Switch.
"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," said Satoru Shibata, president of Nintendo of Europe. "We hope that players in Japan and Korea will also enjoy the game when it is released there in January next year."
The take on Nintendo’s characters and the growing popularity of the Rabbids brand worldwide has, without a doubt, helped make the game one of the first third-party titles players buy for their Switch. The Rabbids TV show has been broadcast in 110 countries, and recently passed one billion views in China alone.
"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," said Alain Corre, EMEA Executive Director at Ubisoft.
"Nintendo have 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" added Mr Corre.
