News:: 'Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle' shouldn't work, but it does

Ubisoft's Rabbids are almost the antithesis of Nintendo's mascots. Sure, both sets of characters are family friendly and mostly mute, but Rabbids are uglier and lean on slightly more crass, juvenile humor. When I first heard Nintendo and Ubisoft were mixing the two together, I expected the worst -- and yet somehow, the mountain-sized toilet that scrolled past the background in my E3 demo of the game didn't feel out of place. In fact, the enormous commode is emblematic of my time with Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle. Everything about the game feels a little out of place in Mushroom Kingdom, but it somehow works anyway.
