Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope, one of GameSpot’s favorite Switch games of 2022, is currently discounted to its lowest price yet. Amazon is selling physical copies of the charming strategy game for only $30. Sparks of Hope just launched a few months ago, so the 50% discount is somewhat surprising. As this is an Amazon deal, it could end abruptly or sell out fairly quickly.
If you’re unfamiliar with the game, Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope is a quirky strategy game that features a mashup of characters from the Nintendo and Ubisoft universes. You’ll take part in strategic, turn-based battles as you combat Cursa and her evil army in an attempt to save the galaxy.
Sparks of Hope improves on the formula introduced in Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, which is certainly worth playing as well. If you want to grab both titles, you can pick up the Cosmic Edition of Sparks of Hope at Best Buy for only $40. It comes with a digital voucher for Kingdom Battle that can be redeemed on the eShop.
Our Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope review gave it a 9/10. “Put simply, Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope is an absolute delight. This is a combination that shouldn’t work and yet it more than works–it excels,” wrote critic Steve Watts. “Ubisoft loves and respects these characters, and has now shown definitively that even something as familiar and comfortable as Mario is still capable of surprising us over and over again.”
