One of the surprise (if you ignored the leaks) announcements of E3 2017, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle mashes the Mario universe with that of Ubisoft's Rabbids in the form of a tactical RPG. Today, Ubisoft announced the season pass, which comes with three pieces of DLC. You can check out our hands-on impressions of Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle here (it won one of our Best of E3 2017 awards too).
The first DLC will be available on the launch of the game on August 29th and includes eight steampunk weapons with their own unique stats. The eight weapons are only available through the season pass.
Coming in the autumn, the second DLC will be released and comprises new solo challenges for players to test their skills. It also comes with additional co-op maps.
The final DLC included in the season pass will come sometime next year and include brand new story content. The announcement describes it as "unexpected story content."
The season pass will set players back $19.99 for the three pieces of DLC. There was no word on if those pieces of DLC will be available individually and if so how much they will cost.
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle follows Mario and the Rabbids as they team up to restore the Mushroom Kingdom. A mysterious vortex has unleashed odd enemies and torn up the world, and it's up to Mario, friends, and the Rabbids to restore it. It features tactical gameplay that should be familiar to anyone who has played the XCOM, Fire Emblem, or many other series. Of course, Mario + Rabbids puts its own twist on the gameplay, featuring things like Mario's signature jumping abilities.
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle releases August 29th exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
