In addition, Ubisoft said it will stream a Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope showcase on Wednesday at 5pm BST / 12pm ET.
Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope lands on October 20th!
The announcement came during Tuesday’s Nintendo Direct Partner Showcase presentation, which focused on third-party titles.
“The motley team of Mario, his friends and the heroic Rabbids – now joined by Bowser – blast off for a galactic adventure in the latest Mario + Rabbids game,” reads a press release from Nintendo.
“The galaxy is in a universe of trouble when a dark entity, Cursa, wants to absorb all its energy. In doing so, it will try to capture the Sparks, creatures born from the merging of Lumas and Rabbids, and drain them of their energy, too.”
Nintendo Switch Online members will also be able to try a free limited-time trial of the original Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle.
