Smash Bros may have wrapped up its crossover roster, but Mario and his friends are ready for a team-up with the Rabbids from Rayman.
Just in, Nintendo has given us a look at the gameplay for Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope, and it features Mario and friends teaming up with some new Rabbid allies. Check it:
Lead your dream team of Heroes through luxurious planets and discover each planet’s curious inhabitants or…enemies! Build your own team by combining your favorite heroes and Sparks. Throughout your journey forge new alliances with the most unexpected ally. Level up, specialize them and emerge victorious!
Though the team-up of Mario, Luigi, and Peach is pretty expected, the game also makes Bowser a playable character, and each member of the team has a special set of skills they can use, from Mario’s double guns to the Rabbids who have abilities like close-quarter melee and putting your enemies to sleep.
While the game looks like there is a focus on exploring an open world, it looks like battle is going to be more of strategy, with players having to figure out tactics and use each hero’s skills the best way they can. You can also navigate your way behind your enemies and unleash some devastating attacks if you time your combos properly.

Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope comes to the Nintendo Switch on Oct. 20.
