When we predicted today that a Mario + Rabbids sequel was going to be announced tomorrow, we didn’t expect that prediction to come true even earlier than that. Thanks to a product page posted on the official Nintendo site, with no official announcement having been made, it looks like Nintendo have leaked the existence of Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope.
A sequel to the fantastic 2017 strategy game, Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope is coming in 2022 and has you heading on a galactic adventure to save the Universe. You’ll once again team up with Peach, Luigi, Mario, Rabbid Peach, Rabbit Luigi and Rabbid Mario, while the key art also shows Rabbid Rosalina and what looks to be a wholly new Rabbid character for the game. The listing also confirms that you’ll be collecting Sparks across the galaxy, which will provide you with unique powers. Below is the full information that was revealed, given there is the change this page may be deleted soon:
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.
While we don’t know for sure, we expect that Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope will be officially announced during tomorrow mornings Ubisoft Forward.
