Mario + Rabbids 2: when is the release date?
We were talking about it this morning: a leaked very likely regarding Mario + Rabbids 2: Sparks of Hope had taken place. The game’s page on Ubisoft’s official store had posted a release date for the title along with images and content of the various editions of the title. Difficult to doubt the veracity of this information a few hours from the Nintendo Direct mini: Partners Showcase, even if it was then necessary to take a few tweezers and a handful of salt.
Nevertheless, the time of the Nintendo Direct has come and with it a trailer (to be viewed above) of the game confirming some information released this morning: the game will be released on October 20 on Nintendo Switch, while Bowser will join the team formed in the first episode by Mario, Luigi and Peach. The pre-order of the title will be available during the day, which can confirm or deny the presence of two distinct editions.
Mario + Rabbids 2: Bowser as a playable character
In addition to confirming the release date and the arrival of Bowser as a playable character (without his regular Rabbid, what a pity), the trailer illustrated the unfolding of a fight. As announced, Sparks of Hope ditched the gridded terrain of Kingdom Battle for freer movement. Bob-ombs will also be collected on the ground to throw them at his enemies. We note the presence of Lapin Harmonie, whose presence should be central given the synopsis:
The crazy team formed by Mario, his friends and the heroic Rabbids – and joined this time by Bowser – takes off to the stars for a new adventure. The galaxy has been in danger since a dark entity, Cursa, decided to absorb all of its energy. This objective involves capturing the Sparks, creatures born from the fusion between Lumas and Rabbids, in order to also absorb their energy.
At the end of the trailer, Ubisoft promises to reveal more information in a dedicated live broadcast. It will take place tomorrow at 6:00 p.m. on Ubisoft’s official Youtube and Twitch channels. Nintendo also announces that Nintendo Switch Online subscribers will also be able to try out the original Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle game through the Games on Trial offer. What to wait before October 20, 2022, release date of Mario + The Rabbids: Sparks of Hope.
