The series requires a Kinect or a PlayStation Camera and allows viewers to perform a series of mini games, such as matching the Rabbids' poses and virtual egg fights with the Rabbids. Up to four people can play on the PS4 and Xbox One, while two can play on the Xbox 360. Accruing high scores unlock additional episodes and content.
"The Rabbids Invasion TV series is very popular amongst kids and their families so we wanted to merge the success of this TV show with the studio's expertise in creating fun and original gaming experiences," brand producer Xavier Manzanares wrote on the Ubisoft Blog. "With Rabbids Invasion: The Interactive TV Show, we're introducing an innovative way that people can interact with their favorite characters. This is not only TV you can watch, but TV you can play."
The show was first announced at E3 2013 and season one premiered on Aug. 3. The second season was commissioned in December and is scheduled to begin in mid-2014 as 26 half-hour blocks each consisting of three episodes. The show is available to view on iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, the PlayStation Store, Samsung Media Hub and Vudu.
