Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle looks really fun

Ubisoft E3 2017 Press Conference Live Stream

We rolled up to Ubisoft expecting gentle disappointment due to the previously confirmed absence of host Aisha Tyler, but were immediately blown away by Miyamoto bursting through the back door with a stylised Nerf gun to debut the new Rabbids X Mario game. No more specifics have been revealed. That's no bad thing, we're just hoping Ubi Singapore is bringing something new to four-year-old mechanics.

In many ways, Far Cry 5 was probably Ubisoft's most-hyped title coming into E3 2017.

Crossing the world of Mario with Ubisoft's Raving Rabbids is odd enough, but it's even weirder that Mario + Rabbids: Battle Kingdom seems to be an XCOM-like tactical game. This game is the epitome of cooperation between the two companies, Ubisoft and Nintendo.

Described by producer Xavier Manzanares as a "tactical adventure", Mario + Rabbids is looking a bit like XCOM lite.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle launches on August 29th exclusively on Nintendo Switch. You can get the biggest news below, or check out all the details here.

The Crew 2 was officially unveiled with a trailer and a gameplay video showing off its variety of sports cars, off-road vehicles, and even aircrafts and watercrafts.

A new trailer was shown off featuring the custom hero and some snippets of gameplay. South Park: The Fractured But Whole, the upcoming successor to South Park: The Stick of Truth, will be available on October 17, while a brand new South Park phone game, South Park: Phone Destroyer, is set to release this year as well.

One of the highlights of the show, Skull and Bones is a pirate themed, online shared world game. Sony it ruined the sleep patterns of the United Kingdom team still further by bursting into life half an hour early while we were still swigging whiskey and playing Mario Kart.

There are different enemy types, which all have different abilities.

Just Dance 2018 will feature over three hundread different popular tracks, including the likes of 24K Magic (Bruno Mars), Chantaje (Shakira), Naughty Girl (Beyoncé), Automaton (Jamiroquai), and Bubble Pop!

Other reveals included Starlink: Battle for Atlas, a toys-to-life sci-fi game in which players create their own physical toy spaceships. A release date of Fall 2018 was given for Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One. Steep is getting an expansion. From Far Cry 5's confusing about-turn on its tonal direction through to a 2 Crew 2 Furious sequel that seems to have expanded its racing to land, sea and air, Ubisoft had plenty to show off.

Closing the show was another game we all vaguely knew about but were stoked to see confirmed: Beyond Good & Evil 2.

Ubisoft displayed a lot of high quality software planned for 2017 and beyond. The trailers looked breath taking and the gameplay just as much.
