The first trailer of the upcoming Rayman DLC in Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope has been revealed. The new DLC pack is called Rayman in the Phantom Show and will be released on August 30, 2023.
Ubisoft’s Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope is a tactical RPG on the Nintendo Switch. The game combines the universes of both Mario and Rabbids into one unique package. The Rayman DLC will mark the last major update to the game.
Players will take Rayman, Rabbid Mario, and Rabbid Peach through the movie-themed dimension titled the “Space Opera Network.” Each level is themed around a specific genre, from Western to pirates to medieval fantasy. The Phantom from Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle will be making his dramatic return as the main antagonist for the expansion.
Rayman can take advantage of several mechanics unique to the DLC. He can float using his helicopter hair, use a grappling hook on Rayman-themed points, and utilize special abilities that fans of the Rayman series will no doubt enjoy. Those who are fond of Rayman Origins and Rayman Legends may already have noticed the music in the trailer sounds remarkably similar to the main themes of those games. Expect to see many more references when the DLC releases in August.
The Nintendo eShop describes the game as follows:
Team up with Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Rabbid Peach, Rabbid Luigi, and their friends on a galactic journey to defeat a malevolent entity and save your Spark companions. Explore planets throughout the galaxy as you uncover mysterious secrets and compelling quests!
- Build your dream team with three heroes from an eclectic roster of nine.
- Take down all new bosses, along with some familiar enemies throughout the galaxy.
- Rescue the uncanny Sparks throughout the galaxy, who provide distinct powers that will help you in battle.
- Unleash your heroes’ skills but be strategic as you dash your enemies, team jump on your allies, and hide behind covers.
Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope‘s Rayman DLC will be available on August 30. Players can purchase the game now on the Nintendo Switch for $49.99.
