New Mario + Rabbids video shows more than just an XCOM copy

Ubisoft shared a brand new Mario + Rabbids video showing how the upcoming tactical turn-based combat of Sparks of Hope has evolved since the previous game

Bowser, a large dinosaur crossed over with a turtle, holding up a cannon on his right shoulder. The sky is pink, below it in the distance are buildings that look like they're made from sweets. Everything is eye-popping.

Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope is right around the corner, and Ubisoft is ramping up coverage with a brand new Mario + Rabbids video going into more detail about the turn-based tactics game. This comes after a gameplay presentation from June, which was a similar length.

As we already know, Bowser’s joining the roster, but this Mario + Rabbids video reveals even more details about him and how he works in-game. There are also different planets to explore as you set out on this new adventure, as well as the new spark powers mechanic which offers exciting equippable items that allow you to switch up certain elements of the gameplay.

If you’re a fan of the game, we’ve got loads of tidbits, like how the Mario + Rabbids director preorders his own games, which is cute as heck. We’ve also got straightforward guides for all you practical folk out there, so head to our Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope pre-orders or Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope release date pages to get ready for the big day.
