Tuesday, 13 Jun, 2017

Actor Elijah Wood's development company Spectrevision is collaborating with Ubisoft on this VR experience that straddles the line between movie and game. To bring order back to the Kingdom, Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, and Yoshi team up with Rabbids heroes in a journey through four different worlds. It's a Nintendo Switch exclusive and will be out August 29.

"When me and my team were told to work with Nintendo, with a game that could feature both Mario and the Rabbids, we immediately understood it was a lifetime opportunity", he said. Skull & Bones takes the best bits of Assassin's Creed: Black Flag - the sailing - and made an entire game based on that, with a few elaborations and tweaks. The Crew 2's reveal video featured some insane racing that switches from cars, to dirt bikes to planes.

"Try to make a Mario game that has never been made before", according to Miyamoto, as translated.

Players will also be able to utilize special abilities.

The gameplay trailer showed the game switching from exploration mode (which looks stunning), to battle mode. Cover will play an important role in battles, and it can all be destroyed using explosive weapons. Xavier Manzanares, the lead producer of the upcoming title took the stage to show gameplay for the upcoming game.
