Ubisoft Forward kicked off its 'Ubisoft Forward' event this year with a "first look" at a quest in its upcoming Switch exclusive Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope.

As exciting as all of this was, the highlight of this segment was arguably the reveal of Rayman at the very end. During the show, game director Davide Soliani announced Rayman would be joining the game in the third DLC as a new playable hero, describing it as a "dream come true".

"The wacky Rabbids and Rayman reunite to embark on an exciting new adventure! Take on even more tactical fun when the Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope DLC arrives post-launch."

Rayman has previously appeared on the Nintendo Switch as a spirit character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, a playable fighter in Brawlhalla and his own adventure Rayman Legends Definitive Edition.
