Ubisoft has officially announced Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope, the sequel to 2017’s Kingdom Battle, at its Ubisoft Forward presentation (which officially kicked off the all-virtual E3 2021). The confirmation comes after the game leaked on Nintendo’s website earlier on Saturday.
The sequel is coming in 2022 with characters like Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Rabbid Peach, Rabbid Luigi, and more. They’re on a “galactic journey to defeat a malevolent entity and save your Spark companions.” The game’s description adds: “Explore planets throughout the galaxy as you uncover mysterious secrets and compelling quests!”
Sparks are the name for new characters formed by Lumas and Rabbids fusing together. Mario and company are traveling the galaxy to save each planet, rescue these Sparks, and defeat the villainous Cursa.
