A new Rabbids party game for the Nintendo Switch is expected to make an appearance at ChinaJoy, which is taking place from August 2 to 5, 2019.
Developed by Ubisoft Chengdu, the new release will be the franchise’s first standalone game on the Nintendo Switch. The Rabbids first made an appearance on the Switch in 2017’s Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle.
From the trailer, the upcoming game seems to be themed after the Chinese classic Journey to the West, and follow the same formula as Super Mario Party, where players take part in various mini-games against friends and vie to be the first.
The trailer also includes a QR code that when scanned, leads to Rabbids’ official Weibo page. A quick look at the Mandarin name of the game reveals that it might potentially be called Crazy Rabbids: Adventure Party. The official English title is currently unknown.
Sadly, the Weibo post on Crazy Rabbids: Adventure Party stated that the game has been tailored for Chinese Switch fans which means we might not be seeing an international release for this game anytime soon.
More details will soon be released over the course of ChinaJoy 2019 so, hopefully, we get some clarification on whether the game will be brought to the West.
