Mario + Rabbids Switch game joins Assassin’s Creed at Ubisoft Forward

Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope, the Nintendo Switch tactics sequel, is set to feature alongside Assassin’s Creed and Skull & Bones in Ubisoft event this week

Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope’s release date is not too far off, and while we’ve seen a lot of the upcoming Nintendo Switch game, Ubisoft is ready to show off more of the moustachioed mascot’s tactical crossover with the annoying French creatures known as the Rabbids. We’re set to see just that at the upcoming Ubisoft Forward on Saturday, September 10, alongside Assassin’s Creed and Skull & Bones details.

Mario + Rabbids Ubisoft Forward showcase may be one of the slimmer sections, given we already have a lot of details thanks to recent Mario + Rabbids videos released by Ubisoft. Still, this is the company’s last chance to truly sell any doubters on the game, so if you need any more convincing, be sure to tune in.

While Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope may seem a strange mashup to some people – it definitely was when the first game was announced – it looks set to be one of the few top-tier tactics titles on the Nintendo Switch this year, at least until we know when Advance Wars 1+2 Re-Boot Camp is coming out.

When is the Mario + Rabbids Ubisoft Forward showcase?

The September Ubisoft Forward is live on Saturday, September 10, and will feature Mario + Rabbids at some point during its runtime. It starts at 12:00 PT / 15:00 ET / 20:00 UK, with details on Skull & Bones and a special Assassin’s Creed showcase that will unveil the future of the franchise.

You can tune in through Ubisoft’s official website, or on their YouTube and Twitch channels. You can check out the latest Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope gameplay trailer below.
