Nintendo may have just accidentally leaked a new Mario + Rabbids game on its website ahead of the Ubisoft Forward event scheduled for later today.
According to VGC, Nintendo posted a website for the yet unannounced game Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope. This game takes the iconic Mario team with their Rabbid counterparts on a galactic adventure to save Spark companions and defeat some unnamed enemy. In other words, it appears that the adventure will take gamers beyond the Mushroom Kingdom and to the stars (where Rosalina and Rabbid Rosalina may reside).
The website also listed additional information, such as a character roster of nine and a combination of old and new enemies. Sparks, too, will have some role in gameplay as they will “provide distinct powers that will help you in battle.”
Unfortunately, at the time of this reporting, the webpage has been taken down.
This game looks to be the sequel to Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. While the pairing of Mario and Rabbids initially received universal eye rolls, the game itself proved to be an absolute success. The collaboration worked well with the turn-based tactical gameplay and provided a fresh spin to both franchises.
Hopefully we’ll learn more about Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope later today!
