One of the biggest surprises to come out of E3 2017 was Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. Not necessarily because of the reveal itself, as the game had been leaked months prior and lots of details were revealed before the presentation at E3, but rather, players were surprised by just how much depth the game had. It was a very tactical RPG title in the style of XCOM, which really floored players. Some even thought it should get Game of the Year, or at least be nominated.
With its arrival coming in August, players are interested in any and all information that can be found out. Well, Amazon UK has revealed in a listing how big the digital download for the game will be. It’ll require 2.3 GB of data free on your system. That’s not too bad considering the Switch naturally has 32GB, and that can be expanded with SD cards should you need them. So barring your Switch being overloaded with games (and props to you if so!) you should be fine.
The other thing that makes this listing for Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle so interesting is that it lists that Amiibo will be functional for the game. The likely candidates for that are the Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Yoshi Amiibo that have already been released. But you never know, there could be some other Amiibo that get the spotlight for the game as well. Time will tell.
It’s hard to guess what kind of effects we’ll see in the game. It could be that you can powerup the character whose Amiibo you use. Or, it could give you special outfits or weapons to use in the game. Anything is up for grabs as we eagerly await its August 29th release date.
