Ubisoft sees continued strong performance by Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

PARIS - May 17, 2018 – Today, Ubisoft released its sales and earnings figures for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2018.

Yves Guillemot, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer stated, “Ubisoft ended the fiscal year on a very positive note, with continued excellent execution across the board. The Group further strengthened its brands thanks to the quality of its games, strong live services and a deep commitment to player communities. During the fourth quarter, we reached a record of peak concurrent users thanks to record engagement levels and esports viewership for Rainbow Six Siege, the successful launch of Far Cry 5 – the second biggest launch in Ubisoft’s history – and continued strong performance by Assassin’s Creed Origins, Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle and our back-catalog titles. As a result, we have outperformed our financial targets, with record-high sales, digital and back-catalog revenues, and profitability.

In the short and medium term, Ubisoft has many growth opportunities to tap and expects further profitability increases. Our digital transformation is progressing at a faster pace than we anticipated. Our potential in the PC and mobile markets is massive, notably in China. Finally, we are continuing to develop and structure our esports offering, which represents a significant opportunity.

Over the longer term, new forms of gaming, enabled notably by streaming, will allow our brands to reach a much wider audience. Consequently, we are investing in our online services platform – which boasted 88 million unique active players[4] – as well as in artificial intelligence in order to better tailor the game experience to each player’s profile and therefore offer them ever-richer experiences.”

Just Dance 2018 - Beyoncé’s ‘Naughty Girl’ featuring Rabbid Peach

Beyoncé’s ‘Naughty Girl’ has been a fan favourite from Just Dance 2018 and we felt it would make a great song to give an alternate version to. But, the new choreography needed something new… something special.

Not just any coach could take us through these new moves and it’s incomparable sensual nature. We needed the best. We thought hard on who would be the ideal fit. Then it finally hit us! We all know that ever since her sassiness has hit the scene, dancing has never been the same. Her iconic presence and angelic voice parallel no other, and she would be perfect. Of course, we are talking about Rabbid Peach!

Join Rabbid Peach as she breaks down the new alternate choreography in the only way she could, fiercely. Of course, she couldn’t do it all alone. Her Rabbid back up dancers are up to their usual antics as they dance along and enjoy the map backdrop right from the Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle game. Have fun, dance along, and maybe take a few selfies!! BWAHHHH!

Thanks to Autumnalblake for the heads up!

Japanese singer/songwriter shares his fondness for Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

Over in Japan, Gen Hoshino is a well-known singer, songwriter, lyricist, actor, and voice actor. It seems he's also a gamer, as he took some time to praise Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle! He shared his thoughts on the game in an interview with Real Sound Japan.

- every time he purchases a new game, he often stops halfway, never getting the chance to complete it due to a tight schedule
- he's currently feverishly playing through Mario + Rabbids Kingom Battle

“Although it’s Mario, (Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle) is a turn based strategy game. It feels like a game which Mario fans overseas will play a lot. What the characters say in the game are something which you don’t really see in a Mario game. The cutscenes are beautiful and (the game has) a really good sense of humor.”
