A Nintendo leak surprises gamers with another Mario + Rabbids video game

Nintendo's official site accidentally posted a page for Ubisoft's Mario + Rabbids Spark of Hope, setting off excitement for a sequel
Had anyone expected a sequel from Ubisoft's Mario + Rabbids? Hadn't even crossed my mind, but I'm very excited for this title. When the first game, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, released in 2017 it was an unexpected mash-up of characters and a really fun game!

The page on Nintendo's official site has been taken down, but the cat is out of the bag, as they say. Sometime in 2022, the Rabbids return with Mario in Mario + Rabbids Spark of Hope!

Of course, announcement of the game came quickly thereafter as if the whole reveal was not accidental. Good save, Ubisoft.
