What technology is Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle built on?
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle was created with Snowdrop, a custom and intelligent engine that powers many of Ubisoft’s games including Tom Clancy’s The Division. Snowdrop’s unbelievable versatility made it the perfect tool to build the world of Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. As an interconnected and flexible system, Snowdrop made it possible to fill our unique universe with special effects, dynamic animations, weather & time setups and many more groundbreaking features.
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle launches on August 29th exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
