Preview: Undressing Rabbids in Rabbids Land for Wii U
by Steven Hansen

Those wacky Rabbids are back. I suppose the Wii U wouldn’t be complete without a party minigame compilation starring these lovable loons; plus, they rake in the cheddar. So here we are. A stopgap before Mario Party 27 that adds to the new system’s launch yet another title from Ubisoft, which is backing the Wii U with gusto, between ZombiU and apparent Rayman Legends exclusivity. The latter alone has me itching to pull the trigger on a Wii U launch-date pickup, given how much I love Rayman Origins.

In Rabbids Lands, the barmy white rodents have taken over an amusement park, where they can be expected to get up to their ears in tomfoolery and mischief. Continue reading for a brief rundown of three new minigames that take advantage of the Wii U controller.

gamescom: Rabbids Land screens and trailer

Whenever there's a new console, Ubisoft's always the first in line to provide the third-party support. In the case of Wii U, whether that's a good or bad thing depends on how much you love Rabbids.  Rabbids Land was shown at E3 where ... nobody remembered it. Let a new bunch of screenshots and a fresh trailer remind you it exists. Now you remember. Hooray. "DAAAAAAH" and all that.

Impressions: Rabbids Land is the Wii U's Mario Party

I remember picking up the first Rayman Raving Rabbids game when the Wii launched in 2006. While I had planned on buying Red Steel alongside Twilight Princess (a purchase mandated by Nintendo fan law), a negative early-morning review had convinced me to drop the mediocre FPS in favor of a minigame collection that seemed much more fun. Was Rayman Raving Rabbids worth the $50 I paid at launch? Hell no, but I sure got more enjoyment out of it than when I played my friend's copy of Red Steel.

Since then, the Rabbids have become a successful property of their own, not only because of the Wii's lucrative minigame market, but because of their charming, silly personality. I never picked up any of the original game's sequels, and part of me feels like the Rabbids' schtick is played out, but I'd be lying if I didn't crack a smile every time they do something silly or scream "BWAH!"

And so as it was with the Wii, it is with the Wii U. Ubisoft is making a new game in the series, Rabbids Land, that is set to be a launch title for Nintendo's new system. This time around, the Rabbids are taking aim at Mario Party.

The Rabbids hope your Fourth of July was fun

Because the way that Rabbid is working that grill, I can only assume theirs didn't end so well. Of course, that's overlooking the fact that the Rabbids are likely French, since Ubisoft makes their games. They could be from Ca...

Rabbids annoying Christopher Columbus

Ubisoft has dropped this new Rabbids video into our laps and what kind of person would I be if I didn't post it to the internets? Watch and learn how the Americas were really discovered. Here's a hint: It involves Rabbids, the Santa Maria and gambling.

Hands-on: Messing with history in Rabbids: Travel in Time
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

The Rabbids are back and this time they’re screwing with history in Raving Rabbids: Travel in Time! The adorable little monster freaks have somehow gotten their paws on a time machine and are wreaking havoc on the time stream. The time machine also happens to be a washing machine. Yeah, let that image sink into your heads for a second. 

This latest entry brings the series back to its roots by focusing on multiplayer mini-games for up to four-players. There’s also a heavier focus on online features that will keep players coming back for more Rabbid chaos.
