Yes, Luigi Can Dab in Kingdom Battle

By Laura Kate Dale on at

Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle releases today in the UK, and to accompany the launch Ubisoft has put up a very important trailer for Luigi's inclusion in the game. Why is it so important? Because it confirms that Luigi can dab in game.

For you old fogies who're unaware of dabbing, get hip with the teens already! 'Dabbing' is a pose where kids point one arm upwards towards the sky while also bowing their head into their other arm. It's kind of like a dance move; it's kind of a way to express excitement. The kids find it rather exciting when someone agrees to do it, because it's the cool thing to do and such. And Luigi's got it down to a tee.

The fact that Ubisoft got a dabbing Luigi into Kingdom Battle before the practice went out of vogue is impressive. These kinds of trends come and go with variable speed, so it's always a gamble if such an inclusion will make a game funny or dated before it even releases. Good on Ubisoft for jumping on a teen trend before it was replaced by Fidget Spinners 2 - This Time They're Dubstep.
