Get ready to join Mario and the gang with the free demo of Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope, now available exclusively for Nintendo Switch. The demo can be downloaded from the Nintendo eShop with players getting access to the game’s prologue and part of the first planet, Beacon Beach.

New Challenges

For those who already have the game and looking for new challenges, the Tower of Doooom is now live, the game’s first DLC available to those who have the season pass. The Tower of Doooom brings the heroes to a mysterious tower where they get to meet Madame Bwahstrella who needs their help to climb the tower, subdue Cursa’s minions, and rescue their old friend Spawny.

In this new DLC, players can look forward to a new game mode focused on combat. To reach the top of the tower, they must fight their way across procedurally-generated battles. To ensure success, they must combine the tactical gameplay of the main game and an additional layer of strategy.

The adventure starts with four heroes and Sparks, which are randomly selected from the full roster. Players need to build and upgrade their team throughout the expedition in the tower. Of course, it's important to plan strategically and adapt tactics to succeed. Those who succeed and reach the end of the Tower of Doooom will realize that it's only the beginning. That's because new expeditions are unlocked which have increasing difficulty and new cosmetic rewards.

Quick Update

Aside from the launch of the new DLC and the free demo, minor bug fixes and improvements have been added, including notifications to let players know that vaults can be replayed. This is good news for those who want to get 100% completion. There are also animations that appear when players feed Starbits to Sparks.

Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope is available on Nintendo Switch offered in both Standard and Gold Editions. Players can download the demo for free by connecting to the Nintendo eShop. For those who own the game and the season pass, the new DLC can be accessed through the main menu.
