A sequel to Ubisoft’s Mario and Rabbids cross-platform strategy game, Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope, is coming to Nintendo Switch.
It was also revealed that Ubisoft would launch the game sometime in 2022, as well as a new cinematic trailer. Nintendo’s own online store leaked the announcement hours before it was made at Ubisoft Forward.
During Ubisoft’s press conference at E3, Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto announced the first Mario + Rabbids title, Kingdom Battle.
Kingdom Battle combines Mario and Rabbids characters with X-COM-style tactical action in spite of its strange IP mashup, making it one of the best early Switch games.
Nintendo is typically good at delivering sequels to successful games, but this is uncharacteristic of the company.
