If you see the latest images Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope You may be interested in the changes regarding the heroes of the game.

Nintendo Everything got a chance to speak with Xavier Manzanares, the game’s executive producer, and inquired about the decision to drop Yoshi from the main cast. It was explained that Ubisoft didn’t want to just “do the same thing over again,” and that meant developing a roster of heroes with characters like Bowser as well.

Here is part of the answer:

When we started thinking about the team and the heroes, we didn’t want to think, “Well, we’ve done this before, so we have to do the same thing again” and try to improve on what we had in Kingdom Battle. So the same is true for heroes.

We decided early on to go for nine heroes. We didn’t know exactly which ones and didn’t want to buy the ones in Battle Royale because that’s the rule. Because it’s not a direct sequel, we’ve talked, and we still believe today, that players will be more interested and think, “Okay, it makes sense because of the choices they made for the heroes and the archetypes they put into the game and what they do in combat and it’s cool and the synergy is super cool.”

In the end, the team opted to go with new characters like Rabbid Rosalina and even Mario antagonist Bowser. There’s also the mysterious “Edge” who will appear alongside Mario, Luigi, Peach and their Rabbid forms.
