After all of the rumours we've seen these past couple of months, it's not so surprisingly but equally as exciting to see Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is officially confirmed.

Not only did Ubisoft's E3 conference tonight start with a bang, it's also got Shigeru Miyamoto on stage with Ubisoft's president, and everything just got a little bit better.

As previously rumoured, this game will have a decent mixture of strategy and action. It's a turn-based tactical adventure in which the Rabbids have been transported to the Mushroom Kingdom, making the whole land a bit unstable. Mario being the top lad he is, hops in to help out.

Switching between exploration mode to battle mode is clearly marked, allowing you to snap into your tactical mind as easily as possible. With destroyable environments, character special moves, and plenty of opportunities to kick some serious, fluffy Rabbid butt, I've gotta say I'm kind-of stoked for it.

Uh...and there's a Donkey Kong Rabbid.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle will be coming (at least) to the Nintendo Switch on August 29th.
