- Switch will launch alongside a new Ubisoft-developed turn based RPG, with the name suggesting it will be a crossover of the Raving Rabbids and Mario series
- currently under the working title ''Mario RPG: Invasion of the Rabbids'', is being developed under the watchful monitoring of Nintendo
- ensuring that it both hits launch day and that it conforms to Nintendo’s own internal specifications for how Mario characters and iconography should be presented

- will feature a new Bowser form based around the design of the Rabbids as a recurring boss enemy

- core party will feature numerous, more minor characters
- is a particular focus on Yoshi as a primary party member, alongside a playable Rabbid

- Nintendo intends to pitch the project to consumers as a Mario RPG project in collaboration with Ubisoft, in spite of Ubisoft doing most of the work on development

Coming from an ONM interview with Michel Ancel...

On his talent

"It's very kind of you to have me with such talented people, but I really consider myself to be an apprentice, where Miyamoto is a master. Well, maybe an advanced apprentice!"

On why Rayman and the Rabbids split into two franchises
