Ubisoft's Davide Soliani details the state of morale following the leak of Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

Coming from an MCVUK interview with Ubisoft's Davide Soliani...

“The leak did not impact the reveal, as we were taking our time to make sure the game was good and satisfying. For sure, the leak affected the morale of the team. After three years of silence and the commitment of the whole team, seeing the leak all over the internet was quite discouraging, but we kept our focus and we worked hard.

Finally, at E3, with the first real reveal of the game, we had a very good reaction from the audience. It was a big reward for the team. When I returned from E3, I returned to a completely different mood. The team was so proud of the general reaction and their individual contributions. They could not wait to keep working. The positive energy that players can create is something that can really drive teams to do their best.”

Not exactly the kind of bouquet you want to be carrying around with you. Bowser certainly has a way of ruining the moment, doesn't he.
