Rayman is joining Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope for an "exciting DLC adventure"

Expect "even more tactical fun".

Rayman is paying a visit to Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope for an "exciting DLC adventure".

Though the game isn't out until the end of next month, Ubisoft has confirmed that "the wacky Rabbids and Rayman reunite to [...] take on even more tactical fun when the Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope DLC arrives post-launch".

Here's the reveal teaser, although a teaser is all it is – no gameplay as yet, I'm afraid:

Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope - Rayman DLC Teaser Trailer - Nintendo Switch.

This sequel to Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle takes place in a "whimsical" and gorgeous new galaxy, that's a curious blend of both Mario Galaxy and Rabbids universes. Within its orbit float worlds of autumnal colour, frozen snow and sandy beaches, like a Mario Galaxy game in miniature.

Sparks of Hope's music will be provided by the returning ex-Rare veteran Grant Kirkhope - as the composer revealed last year - as well as Ori and the Blind Forest's Gareth Coker and Yoko Shimomura, of Kingdom Hearts and Mario & Luigi fame.

The full game is expected to release on 20th October exclusively on Nintendo Switch. As yet, there's no confirmed date for the Rayman DLC expansion.

For more about what came out of last night's Ubisoft Forward, check out Ubisoft talks Assassin's Creed Mirage, from Valhalla expansion to standalone franchise celebration. And if you're catching up on the night's announcements, the evening was dominated by teases for two blockbuster Assassin's Creed projects now in development; codename Red will be set in feudal Japan, while Codename Hexe looks to be inspired by European witchcraft.

Ubisoft also confirmed a couple of mobile game projects, including one set in China. Of course, before all of that, there's still next year's Assassin's Creed Mirage to look forward to, too.
