Ubisoft says Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope has underperformed, but expects 'good numbers' over time
Off to a not-so-great start
While the original Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle managed to reach over 10 million players around the world, it seems like the follow-up will have a much tougher time getting close to that number.
According to Videogames Chronicle, Ubisoft has stated that Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope has underperformed against their expectations, and this goes along with overall holiday sales for Ubisoft games, which were “markedly and surprisingly slower than expected.” Ubisoft shared more on Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope, saying the slower start for the game was unexpected, especially with “excellent ratings and players’ reception as well as an ambitious marketing plan.”
While things are slow right now, Ubisoft does expect them to pick up going forward. Ubisoft specifically said they believe Sparks of Hope will “do good numbers” as the months roll on. The company didn’t share any specific figures, but hopefully it ends up reaching their expectations.
