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. This new mode will allow you to square off against friends on the same console.

Ubisoft announce a new local versus mode for Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. Fans of the turn-based tactical shooter can look forward to a much requested multiplayer mode that is arriving with a free update this week. 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? This new layer of strategy will ensure you need to keep an eye on what sort of power play your opponent is trying to set up.

In order to balance the matches, Versus mode will use standard starter loadouts of all eight characters, or sixteen unlockable loadouts all equipped with different stat specializations and weapons. It's finally time to watch Mario and friends gun down their Rabbid doppelgangers.
