If you thought the strangest videogame related thing to happen this year is the announcement of Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, then think again.
Ubisoft have gone ahead and posted an interview between them and Rabbid Peach and we’re sharing plenty of extracts.

First off, it’s a pleasure to have you here Rabbid Peach! How are you adjusting to your new life here?
Rabbid Peach: “Well, it’s certainly…different. There’s a lot of butt to kick, and you KNOW I do it well. I might not have a nose, but I can smell my enemies’ fear! There’s definitely not enough class for a girl like me though, have you SEEN the clothes these bad guys are wearing? Yuck.”
Understandable! You mentioned kicking butt there, care to elaborate?
Rabbid Peach: “Oh gosh, it’s easy really, darling. I mean the rest of my beloved team might struggle sometimes, but I’ll gladly put them all on my back. These bad guys mean nothing to me, if anything they’re just good exercise!”
Impressive! What’s it like working with a team, especially legends like Mario himself?
Rabbid Peach: “Well of course the team NEEDS me for anything to work properly, but they’re a cute bunch. They mean well, and I know that my kind of healing talents don’t come easy to just anyone. Mario though? That man can do EVERYTHING! He’s strong, fast, smart and incredibly handsome to boot. You could say me and him are the dream duo.”
Speaking of duos, Mario and Peach are an iconic partnership! What’s your take on the situation from the inside?
Rabbid Peach: “Hmph. Are we here to talk about me or irrelevant things?”
Sorry, sorry. Back to you. We’ve heard that you’ve become addicted to the ‘Selfie’ phenomenon. What’s the secret to a good profile picture?
Rabbid Peach: [She giggles.] “Well step one, become a gorgeous diva like myself. Step two, make sure you get those super sweet one time only selfie snaps! Danger is glamorous, baby. Step 3? Work. It. Girl. Oh, by the way, to see the BEST pictures with a PERFECT model, make sure to follow @rabbidpeach on Insta!”.
Wow! There must be waves of people out there who are absolutely inspired by you. What kind of advice would you give to someone trying to make it to your position?
Rabbid Peach: “Don’t bother. There’s only room for one Queen Bee, and that’s moi.”
Well thank you for your time Rabbid Peach. It’s been a total pleasure to interview you. Anything you’d like to say to all the fans at home before you go?
Rabbid Peach: [By this point, Rabbid Peach had already taken out her phone and begun to take hundreds of selfies around the room.] “Hmm? Oh uhm, don’t buy tacky clothes and always be yourself! Don’t let anyone intimidate you or bring you down, you’re strong and independent and own your future! Oh, and make sure to follow my social media accounts! Kisses and see you for the game’s grand release, on the 29th of August!”
