The beloved characters of Nintendo’s Super Mario Bros. franchise and the denizens of chaos from Ubisoft’s Rabbids series are uniting once more. During today’s E3 2021 Ubisoft Forward livestream, Ubisoft announced that Mario, Rabbid Peach and their friends are back in a cosmic adventure in Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
Join Mario and the Rabbids Heroes as they take on Cursa and its dangerous minions. Cursa is inflicting chaos on the planets and their quirky inhabitants while seeking to consume all the energy of the Sparks, uncanny creatures formed by the fusion of Lumas and Rabbids.
On your adventure, travel and explore a variety of planets filled with strange inhabitants and hilarious secrets. Outwit enemies along the way in an innovative combat system mixing turn-based tactics and real-time action. Take control of your Heroes to dash enemies, team jump on allies, hide behind cover… and make the most out of each turn in tactical and dynamic fights.
Players will create their dream team of three Heroes from an eclectic roster of nine to face surprising bosses, familiar enemies from the Mario universe and exceptional Rabbids enemies in their cosmic quest! There are dozens of Sparks throughout the galaxy to locate, rescue and join the journey. Each Spark has a distinct power and personality, and heroes can use their special abilities in battle to gain the upper hand in combat. When this unlikely team combines forces with the Sparks’ immense energy, anything is possible … for better OR worse!
Serving as a sequel to Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope will be available on the Nintendo Switch sometime in 2022.
