To update [Sat 14th May, 2022 14:00 BST]: An official PR for Rabbids: Party Legends was released and confirms a launch date of June 30, 2022. A listing for the game is also available on the Switch eShop.
Get ready for a trip down the Rabbid Hole with Rabbids: Party of Legends, out June 30th for Switch, Stadia, Xbox One, and PS4 (including Xbox Series X|S and PS5 via backwards compatibility). When the Rabbids ride along in their washing machine, they are mysteriously transported into a mythological world of chaos inspired by the classic Chinese novel Journey to the West. In this multiplayer party game, the Rabbids must fight their way through the chaos and find their way home.
Rabbids: Party of Legends has 50 mini-games that challenge players to strike silly poses, topple enemies, peel chili peppers, show off their dance moves, and more. Up to four players can participate locally, either 2v2 or as free-for-all. Players can also create custom playlists of their favorite mini-games, and the AI’s difficulty levels are also customizable, making the game accessible for all ages and fun for the whole family.
The Monkey King and his cohorts Pigsy, Sandy, and Tripitaka must retrace their steps to send himself and the other Rabbids home. The story spans four acts, each occupying a different region of the game board and taking players on a journey through the mythical realm.
Drawing inspiration from traditional Chinese imagery for Rabbids: Party of Legends, the Ubisoft Chengdu development team worked to fuse Eastern and Western sensibilities, blending an integral part of Chinese culture with the light-hearted, odd, and sometimes irreverent nature of Rabbids.
Original story [Thu 12th May, 2022 01:30 BST]: It’s that time of the month when every company releases their earnings report, and with that comes a lot of game announcements.
On the Ubisoft front, it has been announced that the French publisher and developer will be bringing its China-exclusive release of Rabbids to the Nintendo Switch here in the West sometime by June. It is officially listed as Rabbids: Party of Legends in the results report, but could possibly be localized as Rabbids: Adventure Party.
This game that is meant to be inspired Journey to the West (a classic piece of Chinese literature), originally released in China for the Nintendo Switch in 2019, is a party game in which you play a variety of mini-games using the Joy-Con controllers.
