The Raving Rabbids return with a collectible card game on mobile

Here's that Rabbids-flavored Hearthstone take you never asked for

Ubisoft is bringing back the Raving Rabbids for a new game: Rabbids Heroes, out on iOS and Android. Currently available in Canada, the mobile title is a fantasy-based trading card game in the vein of Hearthstone, Magic: The Gathering and other popular series.

Rabbids will duel in card-based fights as they try to head back to the Moon, where they originally came from. There's PvP options, touch-based controls and lots of shouting, as those familiar with the zombified creatures have come to expect. Check out the trailer up top to see all of this in action — including a card design that Hearthstone fans might find familiar.

This is the first time the multimedia franchise's stars have returned to their gaming roots in two years. The last time we saw the Rabbids was in Rabbids Invasion: The Interactive TV Show, a PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One game based on the Nickeloden cartoon of the same name.

Prior to that, the Rabbids made a mark for themselves in a variety of party games. The first, Rayman Raving Rabbids, launched 10 years ago; the series quickly shed its Rayman connection as the strange, maniacal rabbits found popularity with kids in their own right.

Ubisoft hasn't announced when fans outside of Canada can check out Rabbids Heroes. They can instead continue to look forward to that and a planned feature film, which Sony announced it was co-producing in 2014.
