Nintendo and Ubisoft are teaming up again for a sequel to Mario + The Battle of the Rabbids Kingdom. The original was a Well-received turn-based strategy game that came out at the very beginning of the Switch. Now Nintendo and Ubisoft are revisiting the series with Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope.
The sequel will take Mario, Luigi, Peach, Rabbid Rosalina, and others beyond the Mushroom Kingdom. They will have to save an entire galaxy and face off against a villain named Cursa. However, they will have new allies on their side called Sparks, who look like Rabbid versions of the Lumas of Super Mario Galaxy.
This time around, the developers say they’re adding new action elements to “push the boundaries of tactical games even further.”
The first cinematic and gameplay trailers aired during the Ubisoft Forward E3 event, but details initially emerged earlier on Saturday. Nintendo appeared to jump the gun with a Sparks of hope List of the online store which was later withdrawn.
Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope is a Nintendo Switch exclusive. It will be released in 2022.
