E3 2021: Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope Trailer Revealed

There’s a new Mario game coming soon, as Ubisoft reveals the franchise’s second Rabbids crossover with a Sparks of Hope trailer.

One of Nintendo’s strangest projects in recent years was Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, a turn-based strategy shooter that brought together two popular franchises. Now, Mario and Rabbids are teaming up again, in Sparks of Hope.

We imagine that this reveal doesn’t come as a shock to many gamers, however. Not only was Kingdom Battle critically well-received, but the new game actually leaked earlier today.

Ahead of an official E3 reveal, Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope appeared on Nintendo’s website a few hours ago. But while this may take the wind out of the reveal’s sails, this new trailer is getting us excited once again.

Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope also appeared in this massive E3 leak that predicted every game coming to the event! Could this turn out to be a devastatingly accurate breach, only hours before major shows go live?

Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope Trailer – E3 2021

A trailer we didn’t know we needed until now, Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope is here, thanks to Ubisoft’s E3 2021 showcase.

The long-awaited follow-up to Kingdom Battle, Sparks of Hope is bringing Mario and Rabbids together once more. Like in the previous title, players will take control of a team of 3 characters, each with unique abilities, in a turn-based adventure to save the world.

Mario, Luigi, and Princess Peach are returning as playable characters, alongside Rabbid variants of the iconic Mario cast. In an all-new story, the heroes will be working together to defeat a malevolent entity and save adorable ‘Sparks’ companions.

This time around, Sparks will be providing distinct powers to aid you in battle. And there are more than a few worlds filled with mysterious secrets and compelling quests to explore.

This time around, we’ll have Rabbid Rosalina joining the team, alongside the Rabbid/Luma hybrids, Sparks.

Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope will release in 2022.
