Mario, Rabbid Peach and their friends are back for a new adventure of cosmic scale! Cursa, a mysterious and malevolent entity seeks out energy to further its nefarious plans, plunging the galaxy into chaos.

To bring order back to the galaxy and save the Sparks, Mario and friends team up with Rabbids heroes in a journey through mysterious and ever-surprising planets.

Join them on their adventure to take on Cursa and its dangerous minions while exploring a variety of planets filled with strange inhabitants and hilarious secrets. Outwit enemies in an innovative combat system mixing turn-based tactics and real time action. When this unlikely team combines forces with the Sparks' immense energy, anything is possible... for better OR worse!
