Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope Has Gone Gold, Ubisoft Confirms

Games Coming to Nintendo Switch (October 2022)

Ubisoft has confirmed that the upcoming Switch exclusive Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope has gone gold.

Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope has gone gold, which is an industry way of saying that it will release on the date Ubisoft had planned for it — which is October 20th. This is, of course, a small announcement for most, but it does give potential buyers a little extra reassurance. And what makes a gold status so reassuring is that, in spite of the game not being released, it will also not be undergoing any additional work. This means, at least for the most part, that the project is just about ready to hit the shelves.

“We are very happy to announce that Mario + Rabbids has gone Gold!” the Twitter update reads. “Keep an eye out tomorrow for press’ first impressions of the game.”

What Is Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope?

“Cursa, a mysterious and malevolent entity seeks out energy to further its nefarious plans, plunging the galaxy into chaos,” an official description reads. “Twisting the planets with its evil influence, it’s determined to consume all the energy of the Sparks, uncanny creatures formed by the fusion of Lumas and Rabbids, and destroy all who stand in its way. To bring order back to the galaxy and save the Sparks, Mario, and friends team up with Rabbids heroes in a journey through mysterious and ever-surprising planets.”

Sparks of Hope will be the second entry in the Mario + Rabbids series, and will serve as a sequel to 2017’s Kingdom Battle. For more updates on the upcoming chapter, be sure to follow the official social handle here. You can pick up Sparks of Hope for Nintendo Switch on October 20th.
