Ubisoft is pulling back the curtain on Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle's next major DLC expansion, Donkey Kong Adventure. Donkey Kong Adventure will be the final DLC expansion for Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle provided through the game's Season Pass. Players will play as Donkey Kong and party up with friends, both new and old, to experience an all-new Mario + Rabbids story on a mysterious island. The Donkey Kong Adventure DLC is planned for release in June.
Donkey Kong Adventure, being the featured DLC of the Mario + Rabbids Season Pass, should be exactly what fans have been waiting for. Ubisoft says that the DLC will be about 25% as long as the original game's story -- about 10 hours. In those 10 house players will tour four all-new themed zones, including Lagoon, Reef, Jungle, and a secret zone Ubisoft is unwilling to share just yet.
Expect more than just new story and settings from Donkey Kong Adventure, though. Ubisoft will be adding a ton of new gameplay elements in the DLC to make it stand out. New characters Donkey Kong and Cranky Rabbid, and returning character Peach Rabbid, each of new skill-sets to experiment with. And they'll need all the help they can get to deal with the assorted new challenges introduced in Donkey Kong Adventure.
For now, Donkey Kong Adventure will mark the end of post-release DLC in Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. The game's Season Pass is almost spent, with earlier content, 16 new weapons and the Ultra Challenge pack, having been available for some time. Ubisoft could potentially announce a second Season Pass, but it seems much more likely that the publisher is moving on to a full sequel given Mario + Rabbids sudden success.
For Nintendo Switch owners that have yet to find the opportunity to pick up Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, Ubisoft has another announcement just for you. The publisher will be putting on store shelves an all-new Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Gold Edition highlighting the Donkey Kong Adventure DLC. A Gold Edition has been available previously which combined the prices of both the retail game and Season Pass, but the new Gold Edition is likely to have standard retail pricing.
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is available now exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
