Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope is the sequel that fans of Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle have been waiting anxiously. A blend of XCOM and Mario adventuring, the series sees the residents of the Mushroom Kingdom joined up with Ubisoft’s Rabbids characters—Rabbids that are also doppelgängers of everyone from Mario to Princess Peach. The new game, Sparks of Hope, is set to launch in 2022. Give it a glimpse:

So, what to expect from Sparks of Hope? Here’s how Nintendo describes this sequel:

Mario and his friends team up with the Rabbids once again to restore order to the galaxy! Explore planets filled with quirky residents, and even quirkier secrets, while you stop a mysterious evil from plunging the universe into chaos.

Free range of movement appears to have also been added to characters during battle, which will change up the flow of those encounters. For those who have yet to play, Kingdom Battles, the first game, is available at a discount of 80 percent off its standard price. You can hit up this link to give it a look. Also, beloved composer Grant Kirkhope, who scored the original Mario + Rabbids, is back for this one. Things are look up for this oddball, fun franchise.
