Ubisoft has announced their plans for a post-launch DLC season pass for their upcoming game Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle on the Nintendo Switch.
The season pass will give players access to 8 additional weapons, which are available on launch. Come fall, they will also be able to access new co-op maps, as well as, challenges. Adding to that, the season pass also includes new story campaign missions, which is slated for release next year.
The season pass will set anyone interested in it back $19.90 and will be available for purchase on day one in the Nintendo Switch eShop. While this shouldn’t come as a surprise to people familiar with Ubisoft’s business style, some Nintendo fans may be caught off guard by this revelation (not that Nintendo has not tried their hand at the season passes recently).
