Yesterday we reported on rumors of a new team-up between Mario and Ubisoft’s Rabbids. Not long after, Nintendo themselves confirmed the rumor with an official game listing. But you know what’s better than a website listing? An awesome new cinematic trailer and a gameplay trailer. And that’s what Ubisoft dropped during their E3 presentation today, giving us our first look at Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope. You can check it out below!
Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope revealed
Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope builds on the successful formula of the first game while taking it to new heights. The sequel is expanding far beyond the Mushroom Kingdom, taking Mario and friends on a quest to save the entire galaxy! You’ll hop from planet to planet fighting evil on your way to take down the villainous Cursa.
Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope features familiar faces alongside newcomers, like Rabbid Rosalina. There are also new allies called Sparks that formed when Rabbids and Lumas merged together. Sparks can lend their wild powers to your team, and their origin and nature are key to the game’s story. Ubisoft is aiming to push the boundaries of the genre with new action elements, and they hope to craft an experience that’s easy to learn, but hard to master. You can check out the gameplay trailer below!
Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope is coming exclusively to Nintendo Switch next year.
