Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope has its second DLC update, The Last Spark Hunter, coming soon. Now, some fresh story details have emerged…


Last week’s Ubisoft Forward presentation brought with it a new look at the second slab of DLC for Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope – an update called The Last Spark Hunter.

Thanks to the official Nintendo Switch news channel, though (via Nintendo Life), we now have some new story details from the update, which includes word of the enemies players will face (Golems, Fieldbreakers) and a particularly formidable sounding weapon: the Mecha King Bob-Omb.

Here’s the synopsis:

As they are approaching Cursa’s Stronghold, Mario and his friends detect an intriguing signal from the Melodic Gardens, an enchanting musical planet galaxy-famous for its harmonious biophonies, produced by a beautiful alien-like nature. Suspecting a new Darkmess invasion, the Heroes change their course only to find themselves trapped on a silenced planet.

Explore the Melodic Gardens and investigate to find the origin of the threat looking over this place that was once vibrant with music. Meet the planet’s wild inhabitants, explore the musical jungle and the mysterious ruins scattered around this new biome, and sail through the vast sea and sparkling lakes on your newfound boat. But tread carefully, as new enemies await you on this dangerous path. Golems and Fieldbreakers roam the planet and will provide new tactical challenges, even to the most experienced.

Saving the Melodic Gardens will ask you to face Kanya, the Last Spark Hunter. This highly dangerous and techy villain will stop at nothing to accomplish her nefarious plans. Be aware, stopping her won’t be easy, as she has created an all-powerful never-before-seen weapon: the Mecha King Bob-Omb.

The Last Spark Hunter isn’t the only update on the way, either. The same Ubisoft presentation also gave us an early look at a third piece of DLC, starring Rayman.

Neither piece of DLC has a launch date as of yet, but the fact that Nintendo’s released a fairly lengthy synopsis suggests that The Last Spark Hunter, at least, can’t be too far away.
