After what seems like forever, we finally have a release date for Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope. The sequel to 2017’s Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle arrives October 20th, 2022, exclusively on the Nintendo Switch.

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 the official 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.”
