TL;DR: Coming to the Nintendo Switch on Oct. 20, Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope is available for preorder.
Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope Cosmic Edition — $59.99 at Best Buy (includes free $10 gift card)
Now available for preorder ahead of its Oct. 20 release exclusively on Switch consoles, Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope is an intergalactic adventure that sees the return of Mario, his pals, and their Rabbid counterparts in a follow-up to Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. The Nintendo-Ubisoft collaboration has a good chance of living up to the high expectations set by its predecessor, according to Mashable reporter Amanda Yeo, who deemed it “a challenging strategy game that prioritizes freedom and fun” following a three-hour preview.
Sparks of Hope will be available in Standard, Gold, and Cosmic editions, the latter being a Best Buy exclusive. You’ll find pricing, availability, and preorder bonus details below:
Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope Standard Edition — $59.99
Reserving the base edition of the game ahead of time will nab you a code for the Megabug Collection, a set of nine in-game weapon skins. Amazon, Walmart, GameStop, Target, the Ubisoft Store, and the My Nintendo Store all had it in stock at the time of writing.
Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope Cosmic Edition — $59.99
For the same price, Best Buy will give you the Sparks of Hope Cosmic Edition with the Megabug Collection and the Galactic Prestige Collection, which includes three more exclusive weapon skins. It’ll also throw in a free $10 Best Buy e-gift card just for kicks. (This one’s a no-brainer over the Standard Edition as long as it’s in stock, IMO.)
Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope Gold Edition — $89.99
Meanwhile, upgrading to the Gold Edition of the game unlocks a Season Pass with some upcoming DLC packs in addition to the Megabug and Galactic Prestige weapon collections. (Those DLCs include additional story content with a new character, quests, and battles.) Go through Best Buy or GameStop if you want a free $10 gift card or an exclusive Steelbook, respectively — otherwise, head to Amazon, Walmart, the Ubisoft Store, or the My Nintendo Store.
