In a past Nintendo Direct, a new character DLC was announced for Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle – none other than the first member of the DK crew himself, Donkey Kong. Since the announcement, news of a release date has been fairly scarce, but it looks like we may finally have something tentative, thanks to Ubisoft’s latest financial report.
In the report, there is a page detailing Ubisoft’s release schedule for April to June 2018. It covers both packaged & digital titles, as well as digital only titles. Under the latter section, there is a listing that reads “Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle – Donkey Kong Adventure” for Nintendo Switch. While this doesn’t give us a solid release date for the DLC, it does at least tell us that Ubisoft plans to release it by the end of June.
That’s not the only part of this section pertaining to Mario + Rabbids. There is also a listing titled “Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Gold Edition (Retail Only)” for Nintendo Switch, which is also scheduled for release between April and June of this year. This means that a retail version of the Gold Edition could be on the cards. The Gold Edition is already available on the Switch eShop, and includes the game and season pass.
