I can remember after watching the E3 presentation for Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle a distinct flavor of cringe in my mouth. That image of Miyamoto and Yves, back to back with their blasters felt like a guarantee that this game was going to be pure crap, but in 2017 anything is possible. Mario + those silly Rabbids somehow capture the joy and fun of a Mario game with the strategy and tactical combat of an XCOM. Also, team jump is just ridiculously fun. Thanks for the head stomping fun, Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle.
