Nintendo reveals Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope

Sequel to the turn-based hit making its way to Switch next year

Ahead of Ubisoft’s Forward event today, Nintendo has revealed Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope via a listing on the eShop. The game, which is a sequel to 2017’s excellent original, looks to bring back Mario, Luigi, Princes Peach, and their Rabbid friends as they hope to rescue the Sparks, which appear to be playable as well. New locations (beaches, pirate coves, etc) are on the way, too.

Not much else is known about the game, as the listing only reveals one more key item: a 2022 release date on Switch. We’ll likely find out more later today at Ubisoft’s Forward livestream.

Team up with Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Rabbid Peach, Rabbid Luigi, and their friends on a galactic journey to defeat a malevolent entity and save your Spark companions. Explore planets throughout the galaxy as you uncover mysterious secrets and compelling quests!

  • Build your dream team with three heroes from an eclectic roster of nine.
  • Take down all new bosses, along with some familiar enemies throughout the galaxy. 
  • Rescue the adorable Sparks throughout the galaxy, who provide distinct powers that will help you in battle. 
  • Unleash your heroes’ skills but be strategic as you dash your enemies, team jump on your allies, and hide behind covers.
