EVERYONE CAN SAVE THE GALAXY
In Mario + Rabbids® Sparks of Hope, all players can enjoy a seamless experience tailored according to their needs, with the ability to manage the difficulty level of the game a few minutes after starting their adventure. This option is also available later through the in-game menu.
To change the difficulty:
- Select ‘Settings’ from the main menu or ‘Options’ from the pause menu.
- Select ‘Gameplay’.
- Calibrate the ‘Experience’ setting slider to your own level.
Calibrating the overall ‘Experience’ setting will automatically change the ‘Enemy Threat’ and ‘Hero Health Management’ sliders. Arranging both settings separately will create a custom preset experience.
Beside this ‘Experience’ setting, the damage heroes received in combats can be completely disabled by toggling the ‘Invulnerability’ setting on. This will unlock a new innate ability that will allow the characters to suffer no damage and allow any player to enjoy their adventures through combats and exploration. This can also help you to try some of the craziest strategies without any risk!
In addition to adjustable difficulty settings, Mario + Rabbids® Sparks of Hope has also been designed to offer players a smooth and intuitive experience. For instance, camera movements and controls can be arranged at any time during the player’s journey. By the very way the game has been designed, controls have been made even smoother for all players, with single press button commands, aiming assistance during combats, and the possibility to personalize them at any time in the in-game menu. Those inputs, whether personalized or not, are often reminded before combats. On top of this, the game has been crafted to be color-blind friendly from the start, with no critical information conveyed through the usage of color only. All these choices are meant to enable all players of all levels, to enjoy the game and discover these galactic lands as they please.
This Mario + Rabbids® opus is suitable for players of all ages. Children, teenagers, parents and grandparents can all have a good (or more challenging) time discovering this crazy galactical adventure!

MARIO + RABBIDS SPARKS OF HOPE IN A NUTSHELL
Cursa, a mysterious and malevolent entity seeks out energy to further its nefarious plans, plunging the galaxy into chaos. Twisting planets with its evil influence, Cursa is determined to consume all the energy of the Sparks, those uncanny creatures formed by the fusion of Lumas and Rabbids, and to destroy all who stand in its way. To bring order back to the galaxy and save the Sparks, Mario, his friends, and Bowser must team up with Rabbids heroes and start a mysterious journey through ever-surprising planets.
In this tactical combat game, you will explore various worlds in the galaxy, solve puzzles and encounter impressive or surprising enemies, that you will need to defeat one by one. During battle, you will choose a team composed of three heroes, and match them with Sparks. Each hero has a set of special abilities, and will gain experience points after each victory, making them more and more powerful…
The chosen Sparks bring new abilities to the heroes and allow optimal tactical combinations and ideal synergies in battle. Unlocking Sparks through your journey and pairing them with the heroes will bring countless possibilities during the fights. Each Spark has its own powers, and you will be able to pick your favorite at any time, matching them with the perfect hero to fit your own playstyle on the battlefield!
All kinds of players can try and assemble their ideal team in battle, either by being a strategic player and planning their attacks from a distance with a long-range class like Luigi, or simply by chasing enemies around the battlefield with a brawler like Rabbid Mario, who can deal lots of damage at a close distance.
In Mario + Rabbids® Sparks of Hope, each planet you set foot on is yours to explore. From the sunny Beacon Beach to the desolate Barrendale Mesa, going through the freezing Pristine Peaks, the colorful Palette Prime or the bucolic Terra Flora, your wanderlust will be more than satisfied. Explore these open environments to solve surprising puzzles and quests, collect coins to spend on weapon skins and items, and meet their fascinating inhabitants.
