Mario + Rabbids Sparks of HopeIs Looking Like The Switch’s Next Big Sleeper Hit

Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope finally gets the deep dive fans have been waiting for ahead of its October 20 launch. The turn-based strategy formula is back, but with a bevy of new sci-fi tricks up its sleeves, and it’s giving me major Super Mario Galaxy 3-vibes. Also Rayman will be coming in one of the future DLCs.

A new in-depth look at the game during Ubisoft’s Forward showcase debuted one of the game’s new locations, more complex RPG elements, and Bowser unloading on enemies with his Bowzooka. In the beginning of the trailer Mario, Luigi, and a Rosalina Rabbid explore a 3D planet called Terra Flora, finding hidden paths and solving light puzzles to unlock secrets. Later, the group navigates a battle on the back of a giant golden Wiggler train complete with a ton of new abilities. Overall, it looks like Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle with a bigger emphasis on exploration and character customization.

Ubisoft also announced that the game will have at least three DLC expansions after it launches as part of a Season Pass. We didn’t find out much more about when they will arrive, or what they will contain, but Rayman was confirmed to be a playable character when the third one eventually drops post-launch.
