Ubisoft’s China-exclusive Rabbids game gets global release on Switch

Update [Sat 14th May, 2022 14:00 BST]: An official PR for Rabbids: Legends of the Party has been released – confirming a launch for June 30, 2022. A listing of the game is also available on the Switch eShop.

Get ready for a trip down the Rabbid hole with Rabbids: Party of Legends, coming June 30 on Switch, Stadia, Xbox One, and PS4 (including Xbox Series X|S and PS5 via backwards compatibility). When the Rabbids take a spin in their washing machine, they are mysteriously transported to a mythological world of chaos inspired by the classic Chinese novel “Journey to the West”. In this multiplayer board game, the Rabbids must fight their way through the chaos and find their way home.

Rabbids: Party of Legends features 50 mini-games that challenge players to strike silly poses, knock down opponents, slash chili peppers, show off their dance moves, and more. Up to four players can join locally, either 2v2 or free-for-all. Players can also create custom playlists of their favorite mini-games, and the AI ​​difficulty levels are also customizable, making the game accessible to all ages and fun for the whole family.

The Monkey King and his cohorts Pigsy, Sandy, and Tripitaka must retrace their steps in order to send themselves and the other Rabbids home. The story unfolds in four acts, each occupying a different region of the game board and taking players on a journey through the mythical realm.

Ubisoft Chengdu’s development team took inspiration from traditional Chinese imagery for Rabbids: Party of Legends, and worked to merge Eastern and Western sensibilities, blending an integral part of Chinese culture with light nature, strange and sometimes irreverent Rabbids.

Original story [Thu 12th May, 2022 01:30 BST]: It’s that time of the month when every company releases its earnings report, and with that comes a slew of gaming announcements.

On the Ubisoft front, it’s been revealed that the French publisher and developer will be bringing its China-exclusive version of Rabbids to the Nintendo Switch here in the west at some point between now and June. It is officially listed as Rabbids: Festival of Legends in the earnings report, but could potentially be located as Rabbids: Adventure Party.

This game, which is said to be inspired by Travel west (a classic piece of Chinese literature), was originally released for the Nintendo Switch in China in 2019 and is a party game where you play a variety of mini-games using Joy-Con controllers.
