I'm with you, man. I mean I get that they're not everyone's cup of tea, but it seems like everyone freaking out over this looks like:
Man why are y'all such haters. I have loved Rabbids ever since Raving Rabbids, they are purposely dumb little caricatures. What's the problem exactly? (Also have no problem with Minions either)
They fucked up.
So, unlike days of old, on NEW social networks (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, etc.), you can change your username.
If you go to the VERY first photo on @RabbidPeach's account, you can find it here:
You'll see it says to "Follow us @Rabbidsofficial"
Well, when you change usernames (IE: Rabbidsofficial to RabbidPeach) it leaves the other account open.
So now someone jumped on it yesterday in the vacancy that was left behind.
It's not a new account. They renamed @rabbidsofficial to @rabbidpeach, so they could keep all the followers. But now someone else jumped on the old name for the hell of it.
Are we sure Rabbids are for kids?
Mario + Rabbids has suddenly taken on an entirely different meaning
I love how a lot of people don't realise that the Rabbids are 4 years older than the Minions
are rabbids going to become gaming's minions
Ah yes all these terrible non-Nintendo developed titles that use their big IPs... Mario Party, Minish Cap, Oracle of Ages, Mario Baseball/Basketball... Horrible titles indeed
I have no idea what they were thinking when they let anyone of then Nintendo handle their valuable IP.
This is some Wand of Gamelot shit.
Game looks fun.
There's a fairly popular kids television show. Not so much keeping the brand alive, just doing regular marketing.
I'm more impressed that this account has been active and posting at least each month since 2014. Obviously it used to be a general rabbids account which they now renamed to suit the peach rabbid character. That's some dedication in keeping the rabbids brand alive.
