On stage at the Ubisoft press conference, Mario-creator Shigeru Miyamoto said he had one rule for his collaborators on Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle: no jumping. It looks like they went for the next logical thing: a tactics game. Apparently, the Rabbids are loose in the Mushroom Kingdom and running amok, and Mario being the consummate hero sets off to clean things up. Helping him are a couple of Rabbids cosplaying as Luigi and Peach.

Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle is out August 29.
