No, it's nowhere near as soul-crushingly hard as XCOM but it was never going to be. It's a Mario game whereas XCOM is one of the most unforgiving games I've ever played.

That doesn't mean it's a total pushover by any means; you still need patience and the ability to plan ahead but you're in the wrong place if you want rock hard difficulty.

Is there a pre order bonus? I cancelled my amazon order because I wasn't going to get it until next week so I was going to buy it digitally or at a store. Will this be up at midnight?

Yeah some DLC but I'm not really sure what it entails.

It looks like there's bonus DLC that's bundled inside the game.

Spoiler question: Is there any reference at all to Rayman or any non-Rabbid Rayman content in this game? It's the only possible good thing left that might come of this game :/

This is amazing. Also, looking at Davide Soliani's twitter, he is an amazing/adorable human being and I want to protect him.

Not sure why you needed to spoiler tag that.

Also not sure about the bloded. I mean everyone who has played it says it's absolutely brilliant fun. Don't know why a fun, well crafted, inventive game is proving so distressing for you...

I'd take anything that punishes a failure to plan with retribution, I'm not quite expecting impossible ironman level stuff (though I wouldn't turn it down). I guess I'll wait to read/see some impressions this week before I decide between this and Yakuza

Well the answer would definitely be a spoiler, but you're right, the question itself isn't.

Also, I've despised the existence of this game since we first heard it rumored, but I've gone over that in other threads and I don't want to spoil the fun of people actually playing it, so I won't go into that here. To be concise, let's just say that, to me, any kind of Rayman cameo would be the lone diamond in an entire planet of rough.

Well, 9 PM PT, which is 12 AM ET. Most Nintendo first party games unlock at that time as well, but since this is a Ubi title, it could unlock later.

I just remembered: Sonic Mania unlocked at 3 a.m. EST. I guess they wanted it to be midnight on the West Coast. I wonder if the same will hold true for Mario + Rabbids?

Itching to download this bad boy!

Well, guess I'm getting this. I need a good single-player game to break my Switch in and this seems neat, never played XCOM but I heard Codename S.T.E.A.M. was a lot like it and I adored that game...

Hmm, this game doing well probably means if Nintendo needs another XCOM-like title they'll go to Ubisoft instead of Intelli Systems for a S.T.E.A.M. sequel, that sucks.

Couple of quick questions, is it 720p hand-held and 900p docked? Does it have touch screen controls too?

I came so close to tricking a Walmart into giving me an early copy today, but they wouldn't let me take it because of the street date. I literally almost had it.

Debating if I want to drive to a nearby Walmart and buy it at midnight, but I need to teach tomorrow at 8am.

Depends on the game and on where you live. For example, Sonic Mania was midnight... on the West Coast, so those of us on the East had to wait til 3 a.m.

Sonic was midnight PST. So this one will probably be midnight, either EST or PST.

Actually, Nintendo's first party retail titles typically release at midnight EST, but this is a third party title (actually being published by Ubisoft), so it's unknown whether it will release at midnight (EST or PST), or even by noon tomorrow, EST.

But since it's already released in Russia at midnight in one of their time zones, I'm going to guess it will release in the US at midnight PST, the same time as Sonic Mania.

Edit: Didn't realize you were in Norway. Cool that the game's up.
