A new Mario + Rabbids game was rumoured earlier this week and now Nintendo has accidentally put the listing live on their website a little early. This was noticed by a Resetera user, and has been confirmed to be on Google as well as Nintendo’s website.
It will be called Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope and it appears that both Rosalina and Bowser are new characters joining Mario, Lugi, Peach, Yoshi and their Rabbid counterparts.
The game is set to release in 2022 and like the original, it seems like it’ll be a strategy game that appears like it might take place in space. It’s expected that the game will be announced at Ubisoft Forward in the morning.
