In this madcap crossover, Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and Yoshi join forces with four friendly Rabbids (from the hit gaming franchise Raving Rabbids) in a wacky adventure to save the Mushroom Kingdom when a group of not-so-friendly Rabbids invade.

The award-winning role-playing game Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle for Nintendo Switch — for players ages 10 and up — is a wild co-op game full of strategy and puzzles with new weapons and attacks. It's fun for newly minted Mario fans as well as long-time devotees.

"This game came far out of left field," raved a delighted gamer. "Nevertheless, it's executed flawlessly. No RNG frustrations, no save scumming necessary. Lots of little nods to various Mario lore and history. Challenging scenarios, solid skill progression where I never felt over- nor under-powered, and great artwork.... My three-year-old was riveted with every battle..."

Right now, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is on sale for just $25 — that's 58 percent off — at Amazon.

Looking for a fun twist on a racing game? Nintendo has brought its beloved Mario Kart franchise to the real world with Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit for Nintendo Switch. This gaming accessory converts just about any floor into a Mario Kart track complete with checkpoints, power-ups and surprises.

While the Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit game is a free download from Nintendo, you need a Nintendo character kart set to actually play it. Happily, Amazon has Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit Luigi Set on sale for $92 from $100.

"This game is so cool. It feels like a real Mario kart game on the console even though the toy kart looks slow in real life," raved a five-star reviewer. "So innovative and so much fun — and the thing just works perfectly. You can even drift! My cats like to join in which is not only hilarious but looks like a giant monster is chasing or batting at your kart. This is my favorite Switch accessory so far."

Amazon is offering Just Dance 2021 for Nintendo Switch for $30, down from $50. That’s a 40 percent savings.

"I have all the Just Dance games — and granted, I'm going a bit nutty with all this staying at home during the pandemic, but this game may be my favorite," shared a stay-at-home dancer. "The songs are a great mix of genres, and the choreography has enough familiar moves to make the game comfortable to jump into, but it also has some new moves that I don't think I've seen in the other Just Dance games. And the backgrounds — wow — they are amazing. It's crazy to think how far the game has come over the years. Five stars for sure!"
