In the run up to the reveal of the Nintendo Switch, Laura K Dale was the source of many insider leaks about the console which turned out to be true. According to Kotaku, they have been approached by a source which corroborates another one of Dale's leaks; the existence of a Mario x Rabbids crossover (entitled 'Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle’).
Kotaku's source remains unnamed but they provided assets for the game, and it is believed that the game will be coming to the Switch in August or September of this year.
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is pegged to include Mario, Luigi, Peach, Yoshi, and four Rabbids (dressed up as those characters) as playable characters in the game. The game is set to include local co-op and will apparently be a turn-based RPG.
There is a lesson to be learned from this. In the aftermath of Nintendo's January reveal, the lack of any announcement on the crossover was used as a way of deriding Laura Dale and the information she provided. This latest information should serve to remind that sometimes it is better to wait and see before passing judgment.SHARE YOUR COMMENTS BELOW OR ON TWITTER @STARBURST_MAG
