Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope arrives in just a little over a month, and today during the latest Ubisoft Forward presentation, the French publisher provided a fresh look at the game. The footage provides a peek at the game’s bigger, more dynamic open worlds, before culminating in a unique boss fight, that sees the Mario + Rabbids crew taking on a giant enraged wiggler while aboard a moving train. It definitely seems like developer Ubisoft Milan is looking to move outside the box a bit with this sequel. You can check out the latest Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope gameplay, below.
Meanwhile, it’s also been revealed Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope will be getting a year’s worth of new content, comprising three DLC packs. The last of these will introduce Rayman to the mix (remember when he was the star and the Rabbids were just the comic relief?)
