Give it a try
Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope kind of came and went for a lot of folks, but it made a good impression all the same. Odds are you were either on the fence about it or just had a lot going on four months ago (I know most of us on staff did with all the games that were being dumped!), but now you’ll have a chance to check it out for free.
As of now, a demo is out on the Nintendo Switch eShop. The demo itself is fairly meaty, providing a glimpse of the intro to the game, as well as a chunk of the first area (Beacon Beach). This game still has life in it yet, as the Tower of Doom DLC is actually out today. More DLC is on the way too, including a Rayman add-on later this year.
If you do decide to pick it up as a result of the demo, you also have the benefit of post-launch patches, which have smoothed over some of the game’s bigger glitches (including a progress-halting bug for 100% completion).
