Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle welcomes the Donkey Kong Adventure DLC adding the titular character and two other characters into the mix.
Mario + Rabbids Donkey Kong DLC Trailer Showcases The Characters
Ubisoft has not shared much about the DLC since its announcement earlier in the year, but as the release date is getting closer, the developer has finally dropped a trailer. The video offers a peek into the brand new team's adventures in a new island while Donkey Kong, Rabbid Peach, and Rabbid Cranky battle new Rabbid enemies and some of the monkey's typical foes.
"Embark in an epic battle against a vengeful Rabbid Kong who uses his new powers to take over a mysterious island," the description reads. "Discover a world full of reinvented tactical gameplay, new enemies, and secrets to uncover."
Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle Donkey Kong Adventure DLC is landing in Spring 2018 for the Nintendo Switch with the exact release date to be announced yet.
Donkey Kong Adventure Introduces A New Team In A New World
Ubisoft released an official announcement separate from the trailer that gives more details about the new characters and the new world.
The Donkey Kong Adventure DLC is bringing tropical environments fashioned after the Donkey Kong games, including a Lagoon, Jungle, Reef, and one that is being kept as a surprise. These four new areas are estimated to bring about 10 hours' worth of new content. Players can look forward to exploring a lot of nooks, discovering secrets, fighting plenty of Rabbids, and solving puzzles.
Aside from bringing the Rabbid-fied world of Donkey Kong, Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle also made sure to bring Kong's signature moves, such as swinging from vines or his ground pound attack. He also has the weapon Bwananarang and two abilities called Magnet Groove and Hairy Eye.
Completing Kong's list of skills is the Grab and Throw, which mean exactly as it sounds. DK will be able to pick up stuff on the map, including enemies and allies, and throw it.
Rabbid Cranky is also more than just a moody Rabbid, his old man cane is the Boombow with close-range and wide-spread attacks. Cranky's Barrel Bolt allows him to attack at a distance and his Long Story and Stink Eye skills further enhance his attack capabilities.
He also comes with a unique ability: to rain down Boombow blasts as he performs a team jump within the range of an enemy.
Rabbid Peach brings over her Mario + Rabbids weapons, the blaster, and sentry. However, she will have access to an arsenal of goodies in the Battle HQ like his Kong teammates.
Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle Season Pass Available
Those who are buying the Donkey Kong Adventure DLC may also be interested in the Mario + Rabbids season pass, which is available for $20. The DLC comes as a part of the season pass.
