Best video game deals
In this madcap crossover, Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and Yoshi join forces with four friendly Rabbids (from the hit gaming franchise Raving Rabbids) in a wacky adventure to save the Mushroom Kingdom from a not-so-friendly group of invading Rabbids.
The award-winning Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle for Nintendo Switch — for players ages 10 and up — is a wild co-op game full of strategy and puzzles, with new weapons and attacks. It's fun for newly minted Mario fans as well as devotees.
"Mario and Rabbids Kingdom Battle is one of the best turn-based strategy games I've ever played," raved a delighted gamer. "The combination of Mario and Rabbids might seem like an unusual combination, but they pull it off exquisitely. This game is surprisingly deep and requires planning moves and uses of abilities in advance in order to be successful. This may appear to be a child's game, but its deep game mechanics makes it a challenge even for seasoned gamers.
