At the moment, the summery weather invites you to linger in the fresh air. However, this does not stop owners of a Nintendo Switch from gambling, they simply take the mobile console with them. If you don’t have the right game fodder for extended paddling fun in the open air, Nintendo will tempt you with a nice candy these days. With “Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle”, the manufacturer is temporarily offering a real cracker for free trial gaming.
From now until July 10, 2022, you can download the game for free and play it in full until the end of the promotional period. If you put your mind to it, you might even make it to the end credits in this span. Unfortunately, there’s a small but subtle catch: the offer isn’t available to all Switch users. In order to join the battle with Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and the crazy Rabbids, you need a subscription to the Nintendo Switch Online subscription service.

Insane strategy skirmish

Since it is absolutely necessary for playing online games and is comparatively affordable with an annual price of 19.99 USD, many Switch fans have such a subscription anyway. If that’s the case for you, get ready for a few hours of fun with Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. The game from Ubisoft is not, as is usual with Mario games, a skill title. Instead, turn-based strategy skirmishes await you. With a team of three and equipped with specialized skills, you fight your way through tightly defined battlefields turn by turn.
That sounds drier than it is, because thanks to the offbeat humor, the colorful world and a ludicrous background story, “Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle” provides plenty of amusement and good humor. If you don’t have a Switch Online membership, it’s hardly worth taking out extra for the campaign. Although the title normally costs around 30 USD, it is regularly available from 10 USD as part of eShop sales. The reason for the current free campaign is likely to be the release of ” Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope ” planned for October 20, 2022. With the free taster, Nintendo probably wants to whet your appetite in order to get you excited about the sequel. Be warned: the math could add up!
