Like its predecessor, Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope prioritizes having a variety of movement options.
Although Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope builds on the core idea of its predecessor, Kingdom Battle, its formula also features some big changes. In particular, Sparks of Hope completely transforms the flow of combat, removing the grid-based movement and strict action economy of Kingdom Battle to incorporate a wider variety of meaningful choices you can make for each character on their turn. It’s a lot to keep track of and experiment with, but man, does it all make for an insanely fun game that I can’t wait to fully play. Each battle felt like an opportunity to switch things up and try something new to further refine how I make the most of my movement and each character’s unique skill set; even after the full three hours I had, I left the preview event. thinking about how he hadn’t had the opportunity to try absolutely every combination available. Sparks of Hope is definitely a game to watch and is coming to Switch on October 20.
