Mario, Peach, Luigi and the Rabbids have taken to the stars in Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope, the sequel to the biggest surprise hit of 2017. Touching down on a mysterious new planet, the team encounters a new foe, Cursa. And so the battle begins anew.
For those who may have forgotten, Mario + Rabbids is a turn-based tactical game in the vein of XCOM. Ubisoft promises the game will continue the original’s trend of being easy to learn, and difficult to master.
I am so happy that a Mario + Rabbids sequel is happening. We ranked the original among our GotY titles for 2017 and we’re sure the sequel will continue to impress.
Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope is coming exclusively to Nintendo Switch. It is currently slated for release in 2022.
