Nintendo's got a brand new Super Mario game in the works, but with an all-new spin.

Rather than a traditional Mario title, this one co-stars the Rabbids, the characters from Ubisoft's long-running game franchise.
The new game is of course 'Mario & Raddids: Kingdom Battle', and it didn't come as surprise at E3 2017, because of all the leaks regarding it over the last few months, but now we know thanks to Ubisoft officially, that its a 'turn-based tactical adventure' game!
