This weekend’s Ubisoft Forward had a big piece of news for Switch owners! Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope has teased not another Mushroom Kingdom character, but the hero whose home series brought that bwah-ing bunnies to the world. That’s right – Rayman is back!

It’s been nearly a decade since the limbless legend’s last adventure, but now he’ll be teaming up with Mario and the Rabbids as part of Sparks of Hopes’ paid, post-launch DLC. No details on that content were given past the character’s presence, but if the first game’s Donkey Kong Adventure is anything to go by, players can expect a fitting tribute to the character.

Some new gameplay was also shown during the event, where the cast catch a train and deal with an irate Wiggler. This is just one of the planets you’ll be touching down in when Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope arrives on October 20th.
