Hope you like it!

Nintendo has revealed that a free trial of 2022’s excellent strategy crossover sequel, Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope, is available for Nintendo Switch Online members to download and play right now at no extra cost.

The trial includes the full game with no restrictions and is available between now and Monday, July 15th at 4:59PM AEST, giving you almost a week to play as much of Sparks of Hope as you can manage in that time. If, after the trial period ends, you decide you haven’t had enough you’ll be able to buy the game and your save progress from the trial will remain.

Conveniently, Sparks of Hope is also on special right now on the Nintendo Switch eShop at just $39.49 for the Gold Edition, which is a 67% saving and includes the Season Pass. You can also pick it up on Amazon. And if you don’t have an NSO membership already, you can get it for $29.95 here or $59.95 for a “family” membership with access for up to 8 accounts.

Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope earned a #8 spot in our 2022 Game of the Year countdown along with a 9/10 score in our review, with Harry writing, “While Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope is a markedly different game than Kingdom Battle, it’s a more than worthy sequel that successfully steps into its own space within the realm of turn-based strategy. It’s undoubtedly one of the best games on the Switch, and one of the best showings from Ubisoft in recent years.”
