>The worst part is that it might actually have made more money too. They were popular enough to get a tv-show and stuff.
I don't really think rabbids are that popular. I think Ubisoft just wants
them to be popular, or at least some exec at Ubisoft does. They think they're sitting on a pile of gold, but I have never seen nor heard a favorable opinion on rabbids, of the few times I see someone even acknowledge them. I don't believe the rabbids-centric games did all that well, considering how quick they died out, and the Mario crossover game only did well because its fucking Mario. All I ever hear about that game from people is how they wish the rabbids weren't really a part of it. Hell, the game forces
you to have at least one rabbid in your squad, from what I understand, which tells me the devs didn't really have faith people would pick them, otherwise. Hell, I didn't even know they had a TV show until you mentioned it, and it seems to be primarily French-targeted. I bet someone at Ubisoft has been fuming for years
over the popularity of minions for doing what rabbids tried to do but actually succeeding at it.
