It seems that the rumor wagon for Nintendo Switch has started again, as a new rumor has made its way on the internet suggesting that Ubisoft is developing a rather interesting game for Nintendo Switch.

This new rumor comes from LetsPlayVideoGames, who claim that their two sources from Ubisoft and Nintendo have confirmed that Ubisoft is developing a Rabbids And Mario Crossover RPG which will be available for the Nintendo Switch at launch.

The sources claim that the game does not have an official title yet but it has a working title ““Mario RPG: Invasion of the Rabbids” and the game is being developed under the supervision of Nintendo to make sure the game is available at Nintendo Switch’s launch and “conforms to Nintendo’s own internal specifications for how Mario characters and iconography should be presented”.

The title will focus on the Mario universe being invaded by Ubisoft’s Rabbids characters, some friend and some foe, and will feature a new Bowser form based on the design of the Rabbids as a recurring boss enemy. While there will be numerous cameo appearances from the Mario series’ best-known characters, the core party will feature numerous, more minor characters. There is a particular focus on Yoshi as a primary party member, alongside a playable Rabbid.

The report further suggests that a playable demo for the game will be available in January at Nintendo Switch Presentation for the press to experience. The game will also feature a quick save system “to ensure that saving is possible on short notice if the battery on the Switch handheld is running low”.

Nintendo Switch will launch in March 2017 but no specific date or price for the console has been announced by Nintendo.
