Rayman joins Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope

One of Ubisoft’s most iconic characters will enter the tactical arena, as Rayman has just been confirmed for Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope. Don’t get too excited just yet, though, because it’s important to note that Rayman will not be playable in the core game, but will actually be part of a planned expansion which will be sold separately.

Also revealed today, during Ubisoft Forward, was a brand new gameplay video for the colourful, but tactical game.

In a new gameplay video, Mario and his friends need to save the planet Terra Flora from cosmic villain Cursa. They will have to defeat enemies and face the Wiggler, enraged and infected by Cursa’s dark influence. The extract showcases a new vibrant world as well as all the different moves, combos, and action players have at their disposal. It also shows the wild possibilities brought by the Sparks during combat, as this boss battle promises to be another iconic moment in Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope.

Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope will battle it out on Nintendo Switch starting on October 20th.
