In July last year, Ubisoft and Nintendo revealed Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope - a sequel to the 2017 tactical turn-based Switch release Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle.

Last we heard, the game was "coming 2022", and it seems it's still on track. In the French company's latest earnings report, Sparks of Hope is mentioned within the current fiscal year lineup ending March 31, 2023.

It'll be released alongside games like Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora and Skull & Bones as highlighted by the official report (via Stephen Totilo of Axios):

"For 2022-23 we look to return to significant topline growth. It will be mostly driven by a diverse line-up of premium games, including Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora™, Mario + Rabbids®: Sparks of Hope and Skull & Bones®, as well as other exciting titles. This growth will also benefit from our Free-to-Play releases, especially those based on our biggest IPs."

In somewhat related news, Ubisoft has also announced it will be bringing its China-exclusive Rabbids game to the west.
