'Mario + Rabbids Sparks Of Hope' Rayman in the Phantom Show DLC Arriving Later This Month - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Aug. 1, 2023 @ 10:05 a.m. PDT

Mario, Rabbid Peach and their friends are back for a new adventure of cosmic scale in Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope!

Players will embark on an epic journey to restore order as Cursa, a mysterious and malevolent entity, twists the planets with its evil influence.

Mixing turn-based tactics and real time action, Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope’s innovative combat system will have players use their Heroes to dash at enemies, team jump on allies, hide behind covers, or take advantage of their special abilities in order to get the most out of every turn.  With its innovative gameplay, Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope will be a fun tactical adventure for new players and experts of the genre alike.

Determined to consume all the energy in the galaxy, Cursa and its minions are hunting the Sparks, uncanny creatures formed by the fusion of Lumas & Rabbids, and will destroy all who stand in its way. Players will have to locate and save the Sparks to have them join the adventure, opening up new tactical possibilities to help Heroes get the upper hand in battles. In addition to leveling up and customizing their Heroes, players will have the opportunity to pair them with Sparks to unlock additional abilities! They all have a distinct power and personality, ranging from energy shields to powerful elemental attacks.


Ubisoft announced that Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope: Rayman in the Phantom Show would be released on August 30, 2023 for $14.99 or as part of the Season Pass and Gold Edition.

In this last DLC for Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope, Rayman will team up with Rabbid Mario and Rabbid Peach as they meet again with the Phantom!

In this brand-new adventure, separate from the main game’s story line, players will control Rayman, Rabbid Peach and Rabbid Mario, as they discover the dramatic Space Opera Network, an uncanny TV studio full of props and easter eggs. This place is run by the Phantom, a previous antagonist from Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, now reconverted as a studio director beyond reproach. As the TV studio’s rating is lower than ever, he needs the help of true stars to help him get his past glory back.

Through a variety of TV sets, Rayman and his friends will be able to wander through brand new vertical levels, as Rayman can now use his haircopter ability to jump and take Rabbid Peach and Rabbid Mario with him. During battles, this new adventure will provide tons of new tactical possibilities as players will leverage the full power of Rayman’s arsenal, from his plunger blaster to his aerial traversal abilities, all coming straight from Rayman history.

Besides, the walk down memory lane won’t stop there, as David Gasman reprises his role as the limbless hero, and Christophe Heral joins Grant Kirkhope to compose the Original Soundtrack of this DLC.

On your adventure, travel and explore a variety of planets filled with strange inhabitants and hilarious secrets. Outwit enemies along the way in an innovative combat system mixing turn-based tactics and real-time action. Take control of your Heroes to dash enemies, team jump on allies, hide behind cover… and make the most out of each turn in tactical and dynamic fights.

Players will create their dream team of three Heroes from an eclectic roster of nine to face surprising bosses, familiar enemies from the Mario universe and exceptional Rabbids enemies in their cosmic quest! There are dozens of Sparks throughout the galaxy to locate, rescue and join the journey. Each Spark has a distinct power and personality, and heroes can use their special abilities in battle to gain the upper hand in combat. When this unlikely team combines forces with the Sparks’ immense energy, anything is possible … for better OR worse!

Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope builds on the fantasy of the publicly and critically acclaimed game Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle to offer a new gameplay experience and an epic journey through an endangered galaxy.

Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope is available worldwide for Nintendo Switch.
