Mario + Rabbids Successor Leaks
Going live on the official Nintendo website before either the Ubisoft or Nintendo E3 press conferences was the site related to Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope, the successor to the popular 2017 crossover.
According to the official site:
” 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.”
Based upon that description, as well as a few accompanying screenshots it seems the game will again lean on the XCOM inspired systems that drove the original title.
Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope is coming to Nintendo Switch in 2022, and if you want to learn a little more about the project (albeit in clear hush-tones), Creative Director Davide Soliani was on an episode of Dev Diary to discuss his journey and the franchise collaboration
