Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope went gold a few days ago (which means that the development is finished and the game has gone to duplication, the final step before it is shipped to stores for example). The day after this announcement, several journalists and videographers published their impressions and gameplay videos after trying the game. There were also new interviews with the producer Xavier Manzanares. In several of them, he mentioned the lack of multiplayer (unlike the first episode, which allowed for co-op and competitive play), with this new game focusing purely on single-player adventure (see interviews with Screen Rant and Shacknews). Note that Ubisoft has also confirmed thata Ubisoft Connect account will not be required to play Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope. We also discovered that by pre-ordering the game on the store My European Nintendo Store (which is currently under maintenance, but you will have to go to this link when it comes back), an exclusive SteelBook will be offered. Nintendo also showed off some gameplay in the latest Direct broadcast on September 13. We’ve gathered video from the Live, the latest promotional video released by Ubisoft, and plenty of gameplay footage and new footage below.
As a reminder, Mario + The Rabbids Sparks of Hope will be available on October 20 next on nintendo Switch. There will be DLCs, all included in the Season Pass sold to €29.99 and included in theGold Edition (sold in physical form and as a download), which includes the base game and the Season Pass at €89.99. DLCs will be sold separately, and the third will add Rayman as a new playable character. You will find the information, videos and images previously broadcast in our old articles at this address.
