A new teaser video for Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope debuted at Ubisoft Forward, revealing that Rayman will reunite with the Rabbids and star in the game's third DLC expansion. As a new playable character in the upcoming DLC, Rayman will join forces with Rabbid Peach and Rabbid Mario.
In addition to this post-launch announcement, a gameplay video for the game's main adventure gave us a first look at a new planet and boss, which you can check out here:
In this new gameplay video, Mario and his friends fight to save the vibrant planet Terra Flora from the mysterious villain, Cursa. To do so, they will take down mischievous Rabbid enemies and face off in a boss battle against a massive Wiggler, who is enraged and infected by Cursa's dark influence. The new gameplay also showcases the wild possibilities that the Sparks can provide during combat by lending Heroes their elemental powers, as well as many of the different moves, combos, and actions players have at their disposal.
The DLC featuring Rayman will be available for standalone purchase or as part of the Season Pass, which is included in the Gold Edition. Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope launches on October 20 exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
