Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope Leaked Ahead of E3 2021 Ubisoft Forward
Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope, a sequel/follow-up to 2017’s Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, has leaked on Nintendo’s website ahead of today’s E3 2021 Ubisoft Forward.
Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Rabbid Peach, Rabbid Luigi, Rabbid Rosalina, and more will be featured in this strategic adventure that is “a galactic journey to defeat a malevolent entity and save your Spark companions.”
Set to be released on Nintendo Switch in 2022, players will get to explore planets throughout the galaxy while building a team of three heroes from “an eclectic roster of nine.” The description teases that the game will feature all-new bosses, along with “some familiar enemies throughout the galaxy.”
The aforementioned Sparks, one of which appears quite similar to Super Mario Galaxy’s Luma, provide distinct powers that will help players in battle. Each hero will also be able to dash, team jump on allies, and hide behind covers, much like the original.
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle’s reveal at E3 2017 was one of the more special moments at that year’s show and was a big sign of Nintendo allowing other developers and publishers to experiment with its IP.
In our review of Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, we said that “its turn-based tactics gameplay has some great ideas that distinguish it from its inspiration.”
