Game Completion 2018 #3 – Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle

  • Game: Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle
  • Platform: Nintendo Switch
  • Developer: Ubisoft
  • Publisher: Ubisoft

One that I started and played through the bulk of in August 2017 when it first launched but, for some reason, I never quite finished the fourth and final world. I reckon that was partly down to the Switch’s packed release schedule, and partly because, well, although I love turn-based strategy games, I find them very tiring in long sessions.

Still, I was super-pleased to go back to it and get it over the line, because not only was it just such a pleasant surprise, but it was a terrific strategy game in its own right, irrespective of the franchises it smashed together. It just should not have worked, and it just did. Wonderful stuff.
