Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle - Another huge round of rumored info

The following info comes from unnamed sources at Ubisoft...

- development started three years ago
- Ubisoft was the one that came up with the idea, and went through the standard pitching process to Nintendo execs
- seems like the title may have been in the works for Wii U at first
- being made by both Ubisoft’s Paris and Milan divisions, with the core creative direction being handled by Milan
- Nintendo is overseeing development and approving ideas, but have been very accepting and quick to approve ideas
- game features surreal, self referential gags
- at one point, there was a hulky Donkey Kong themed rabbid serving as one of the first boss encounters
- this rabbid has access to a pile of bananas that it can use to replenish its health
- to beat him, you have to cut off his food supply to prevent him from recovering
- the DK rabbid will dab periodically if it lands an attack correctly
- when the boss faints, the rabbid cosplaying as Princess Peach in your party takes a selfie with him
- the 8 playable characters each have an individual skill tree of sorts for developing special abilities
- each start with a base skill that they can later improve, in addition to learning new ones

- there are unique ones like Peach’s powerful ability to inflate enemies using a foot pump until they explode
- online suite was being tested several months back, although this mode was inaccessible in the test builds
- additional mode named ‘Arena’ was spotted in the test UI
- prototypes feature a mode dubbed ‘amiibo machine’, but the details behind it remain a mystery
- Ubisoft is producing prototype figurines of some of the game’s characters, which may turn out to be amiibo

Platinum discussing the potential for Bayonetta 3

A portion of a SourceGaming interview with Atsushi Inaba from Platinum Games...

SG: If Bayonetta 3 were to ever happen, would Bayonetta still be the protagonist or would you try to surprise fans?

AI: Maybe there would be a male Bayonetta! (laughs). I would like to make Bayonetta 3. We’re talking within the company even now about what to do. But because we’re constantly talking about it, that actually makes it really hard to say. If we weren’t talking about it, we could just say something random or offhand, you know, but because we’re actually talking about it…Of course, that’s just something that you talk about when you’re making a series – do you want to keep the same protagonist? There’s plenty of precedent for changing protagonists, and so that is something we discuss – do we want to keep the same one, have a different one, add new ones – but that’s certainly not anything I can say for sure at this point.

Remember, the Double Pack includes both the PS4 and 3DS versions of the game. I would imagine at some point there will be a double pack for both the Switch and 3DS versions.
