Ubisoft has announced their new Nintendo exclusive title Mario Rabidds: Kingdom Battles.

In the main campaign for Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, players will form a team of three unique characters, customizing their abilities via each character's dedicated skill tree to form the flawless trio.

Check out the footage below.

The teaser trailer, which features the Rabbids and Mario crossover is just what you would expect - Rabbids messing around with a? block. The Crew 2 showcased some impressive cross-terrain racing on a number of different vehicles, with a release window of early 2018.

At just over a minute and 30 seconds long, the quick edit of scenes in the new trailer didn't reveal much of the plot. The last words are important as it hints that the other Life Is Strange won't star Max as the main character.

Some additional details on the game have also emerged online shortly after its announcement.

Nintendo and Ubisoft have collaborated on projects before, but this was the first time the Japanese giant had agreed to lend characters from the Mario galaxy to a non-Japanese company, said Poix. Graphically the game looked very impressive with a bright and vivid colour pallet, reminiscent of Mario Galaxy and Mario 3D World. Loot Hunt was shown off, one of the 5V5 PVP game modes that will be included in the game. It will involve players duking it out on small battlefields where they can hide, launch attacks, and so on, which some have likened to games such as XCom. Each character has their own special ability that provides either defensive or offensive capabilities.

As you move ahead you can also get more tools, use combo setups, find new weapons, heroes, etc. Checkout the trailer below. For everyone else watching at home, the game will be launching on August 29, 2017, which isn't very far away. Dan Hay, Executive Producer of the Far Cry series and the Creative Director of Far Cry 5 at Ubisoft Montreal, then took the stage to talk a bit about the story of Far Cry 5.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 was finally confirmed at the event, to great applause.
