We Turned XCOM 2 Into Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle
It starts with using XCOM 2's character creator and making indistinguishable versions of the cast of Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle. That is also where it ends. Leo Vader and I make the abominations characters and then invite Jeff Marchiafava and Ben Reeves (who reviewed Kingdom Battle and War of the Chosen, respectively) to take their new soldiers into the alien war.
Both Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle and XCOM 2: War of the Chosen are out now and you can follow the links to read our reviews. The secret between the two games is that you really can't go wrong either way.
