Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope Faces the Wiggler, Gets Rayman DLC
Ubisoft released a new gameplay video for the upcoming Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope. The seven-minute video shows the planet of Terraflora, where players will face off against a boss known as the Wiggler, as well as some of its combat, exploration, and puzzle elements.
In addition, Ubisoft announced that the game’s DLC will include the appearance of Rayman from the eponymous platformer series. Rayman will be added in the game’s third planned DLC, where he will join Rabbid Peach and Rabbid Mario as a playable character. This DLC will be included as part of the game’s Season Pass.
Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope sees Mario and his friends teaming up with the Rabbids to stop an entity called Cursa, which is consuming energy from the Sparks — fusions of Lumas and Rabbids — and plunging the galaxy into chaos. Players control a team of three members selected from nine playable characters, travelling from planet to planet to free them from Cursa’s influence. As players rescue Sparks, they are able to use their powers in battle, including generating an energy barrier or causing fire to rain down on enemies. Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope will release for Nintendo Switch on October 20, 2022.
