Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope is the upcoming sequel to one of the stranger collaborations in gaming history, Super Mario and Rabbids.

2017’s Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle title was released to critical acclaim and was one of the sleeper hits of that year, with players still enjoying the title now.

The sequel to the lauded game looks set to take the premise even further, with the unexpected pairing of Nintendo and Ubisoft’s characters getting another run in the sun.

Here’s everything you need to know about Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope, including the release date for the game, gameplay, information on the collector’s edition and more.
