- Cursa is the main antagonist, and is a force that wants to consume Sparks
- Bowser joins the good guys to help out, due to his army being lost
- each Hero has a custom weapon and unique technique
- each Hero can use Sparks in battle for special abilities
- Edge is a new Rabbid Hero with a sword

A new trailer for Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope was shared during the showcase, which you can see below.
Along with that, Gameplay and Team trailers were shared as well. You can see both of those videos below.
what were the surprises?
We learned a bit more about Bowser's appearance in the game, and we found out who's working on the soundtrack. There may have been some other superfluous bits in there, but those are the surprises I noticed.
That Ubisoft can have unique Rabbid designs and Mario can't.
thank you RMC!
excited about the more free form play style to this one!
