Second Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope DLC Out Now

Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope: The Last Spark Hunter

Ubisoft has announced that the Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope: The Last Spark Hunter downloadable content is now available on Nintendo Switch.

In this latest DLC, as they are approaching Cursa’s Stronghold, Mario and his friends detect an anomaly in the Melodic Gardens, an enchanting planet where plants produce mesmerizing music. Suspecting a new Darkmess invasion, the Heroes change their course only to find themselves trapped on a silenced planet.

New challenges await our heroes in the shape of Kanya, the Last Spark Hunter, who will stop at nothing to accomplish her nefarious plans and has already created her own terrible weapon: the Mecha King Bob-Omb. However, Mario will not face this threat alone as he might encounter new allies, including an old friend in danger!

In the Melodic Gardens, players are invited on a journey through music and nature in which they can interact with the musical plants to solve puzzles. In addition to the nine Heroes of the main game being playable, five new Sparks can be recruited to stop Kanya’s schemes – and any help is welcome with new enemies like Fieldbreakers and Golems crossing their path.

The final downloadable content will arrive in late 2023, and will see Rabbid Mario, Rabbid Peach and Rayman join forces in what is promised to be “a surprising, fun and epic adventure.” You will be able to control Rayman and follow the game’s Heroes as they explore a new and mysterious place.

We enjoyed our time with the main game, concluding in our review: “It isn’t without its missteps, but, on the whole, Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope can be seen as a triumph of galactic proportions. Bolder and more daring in its vision for the unexpected collision of its Heroes compared with the original game, it is the exploration of its planets and the cosmic-powered combat system that underpin what amounts to an exceptional experience. It may perhaps be lacking the heart of its predecessor, but it certainly isn’t short on heroics.”

Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope is now available at retail and digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
