Yeah. They are pretty damn long though.

Have to wait until Thursday to pick this up, hope to see a load of screenshots from you guys until then though! More than happy to support someone managing to subvert expectations to the extent they have, especially when it's backed with gameplay and art direction befitting of the Mario name.

Not that that hasn't been diluted elsewhere but I feel the gap in expectation between leak and reveal is wider than any other Mario tie-in I can think of.

Yep, and they seem pretty massive, each combining different archetypes.

World 1 - Ancient Gardens: Includes archetypes like grasslands, beach, jungle, etc
World 2 - Sherbet Desert: Includes archetypes like desert and snow
World 3 - Spooky Trails: Ghost archtype — graveyards, swamps, ghost towns, carnivals, etc
World 4 - Bowser's Castle: What you'd expect, although it looks like it also has industrial areas (i.e. clockwork)

He wanted something Mario hasn't done before. So it was a perfect combination of factors. Soliani got to make a game with the brand that got him into videogames (Mario) as well as a game in one of his favorite genres (XCOM-style tactics), and with the creative liberties afforded by the Rabbids. Dream come true for the guy. :-)

Thanks for this great answer / write-up! I had no idea that the lead guy was so much into XCOM specifically but it does explain a lot.

I need to.

The first boss, shown in many videos and screens is a DK Rabbid, with a remix of sorts of Jungle Hijinks for the boss music.

Also apparently near the end theres Rabbid Wario and Rabbid Waluigi. Bwaario and Bwaaluigi if you will. No normal ones though

The game has very little in the way of non-rabbid content.

I disagree.

The world are filled with tons of mario easter eggs in the background.

I fully expect this to be like Splatoon 2 where the eShop falls to pieces at midnight.

And for those asking, most US cards do not work for foreign eShops.

Yeah. The whole game world IS the Mario world with the Rabbids crash-landing and warping things. From the opening cutscene it goes hard on the Nintendo fandom.

I expect it's gonna take me like 30 hours after going through the main story + the challenge levels (which have been pretty neat so far). But I'm not a power gamer and tend to take my time.

I had never played a Rabbids game before this and was completely indifferent to them. Having now played about half of this I'm not sure I understand why they're so hated. Maybe they've been toned down for this particular game, I don't know, but they're just occasional slapstick relief. They certainly don't dominate proceedings or make the game feel worse. Certainly I think the two franchises feel more natural existing together in the same world than I could have imagined prior to playing it.
