It's been rumored for some time with a lot of folks asking "is this for real," and Ubisoft finally answered all of that during their E3 press conference today. Mario Rabbids Kingdom Battle is an actual thing and it is coming to the Nintendo Switch this August.
Update: Earlier, we reported that the two player local co-op would include co-op in the campaign. This has since been clarified and the co-op will only be in specific challenges. The main campaign will be single player only.

Check it out.
Mario Rabbids Kingdom Battle will support two player local co-op in specific co-op challenges only, unfortunately. We're waiting to hear some more about what all that entails and will update with more details as they come in.
The game will be available on August 29, 2017.
