Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope is an upcoming Nintendo Switch game set to be released in 2022 and the successor to Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. Like its predecessor, the game is a crossover featuring characters from the Mario franchise and Ubisoft's Rabbids series, and sees the return of characters from the previous game in addition to introducing new ones such as Rabbid versions of Rosalina and Lumas named Sparks.[2] The game contains nine playable characters with a team of three allies like its predecessor. The game's story revolves around the cast venturing through space and traveling to different planets to rescue the Sparks. Also similar to its predecessor, the game was leaked ahead of its official announcement, on Nintendo's official website hours prior to the Ubisoft Forward 2021 broadcast.[10]

Whilst Nintendo is publishing the game in Japan like it did its predecessor, Ubisoft is taking publishing duties for South Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan over from Nintendo.


A force named Cursa wants to consume Sparks, which are a combination of Lumas and Rabbids. A team of Mario and Rabbid characters have to save the universe.[11]
