ProtoIcon.png This game has a prototype article

This article is a work in progress.
...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.
To do:
Deserialize the binary C++ scripts. There's MANY.
  • Figure out a better way to view the in-game models and textures.
  • View 3ds_max_test_files.
  • This and this.
  • There's existing code in the base game for the PVP mode.
  • There's supposedly a prototype build of the game on that NAND dump.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is a, shall we say,... unexpected crossover between Nintendo's Mario and Ubisoft's Rabbids franchises, which takes the form of a turn-based tactical RPG a la the X-COM series. Despite the odd crossover idea, the game did rather well with audiences and critics alike. It was also Ubisoft's first Switch-exclusive game to use the Snowdrop Engine, the first time the engine was ever used on a Nintendo platform.

Unused Models



An early base design for the Lava Queen known as chr_enm_bwapeach_tpose_01 can be found in moria\sdf\nx\data\moria\baked\art\animation\01-chr\03-enm\bwapeach.
The model features hair different from the final Lava Queen design, and lacks many of the Lava Queen's defining features, such as her horned helmet, cape and gloves.

  • DebugStopWinCombat: Terminates a battle with a forced win factor.
  • DebugStopLoseCombat: Terminates a battle with a forced lose factor.
  • DebugFMFreeze: Unknown, Free Movement freeze?
  • DebugPlaytestFeedback: Playtesting feedback for Debug.
  • DebugPlaytestFeedbackExit: Exiting playtesting feedback for Debug.
  • DebugPlaytestFeedback_TooEasy: Responding with "Too Easy" to the playtesting feedback for Debug.
  • DebugPlaytestFeedback_TooHard: Responding with "Too Hard" to the playtesting feedback for Debug.
  • DebugCinematicSkip: Skips the cutscene.
  • DebugAmiiboUnlock: Unlocks amiibos.
To do:
Check all updates for some likely added in multiple.

As of the updates, a few more were added.

  • DebugPuzzleSkip: Skips the current puzzle.
  • DebugAddGoldCoins: Adds an unknown amount of coins to the current balance, also usable as a UI action, hardcoded.
  • DebugAddOrbCoins: Adds an unknown amount of experience orbs to the current balance, also usable as a UI action, hardcoded.

Internal Project Names

The game went with multiple mainly, Moria, given by the directory going by the name and many other references in files. rr5 is another relating to a string in the game executable, likely meaning Raving Rabbids (project/game) 5, relating to originally being the 5th game in the series, despite Rabbids Land came out earlier as rr6, suggesting this title was delayed in the Wii U era. The last one mentioned in files is RKB, which is unsurprisingly short for likely Rabbids Kingdom Battle.

Release Text
Base Built by rr5.buildfarm/PDC-BLD-481
1.9.58692 Built by rr5.buildfarm/PDC-BLD-522

Leftover Tom Clancy's The Division Data

Many files mention rouge and directories, which is the internal name for that game, meaning the game was likely built off a build of that game.

//does anyone know why this file is in here?

moria/game system data/fruit/team/team_settings.fruit has this note.

 This file is here in order to make the DLC discovery system work, since it needs at least a reference to a "retail" juice in the gameroot.

A note in various scripting files.

Unused Code

PVP Code

Present in the base game is a call loading a spawn location file for PVP which was later added in a semi-recent update, most likely Ubisoft was internally working on the PVP mode since Day 1!

file PVP ./spawnlocations/pvp-spawnlocations.juice

Revive Mechanic

To do:
Is this leftover from that other or specific to this game?

Present in moria/game system data/team/techniquesettings/techniqueparameters.fruit is a revival function.

bool myRevive FALSE < tooltip="can revive dead characters">

Unused Music

The Phantom's song in this game has three verses in the files, but only the first and last are played in-game. The second one has the Phantom talk about how Mario and co's attacks are ineffective against him, and was presumably going to play before the party figured out his weakness in the boss battle. According to an interview by Grant Kirkhope, the game's composer, the second verse was scrapped because the devs didn't have time to animate it in-game.
