Ubisoft has provided fans with a further look at the long-awaited sequel to Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle which is called Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope and it looks like it is shaping up to be something truly impressive. Gone is the grand based system restricting player movement in battles and players can now explore larger environments when out of battle, take on side-quests and solve puzzles. There’s also the inclusion of Bowser on your team along with Rabbid Rosalina and a new female character called Edge who wields a sword. The game also has some stellar composers including Gareth Coker (Ori and the Blind Forest) and Yoko Shimomura (Kingdom Hearts) along with Grant Kirkhope to compose for Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope. Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope launches on the Nintendo Switch family of systems on 20th October and you can check out the newly released trailer for the game down below.
