The curtain rises on a crossover performance for the ages as Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope unveils its final DLC act – Rayman in the Phantom Show. Ubisoft’s iconic limbless hero joins the cosmic fray, bringing new abilities and mechanics to the acclaimed tactical RPG.

Rayman Headlines Mini-Campaign with Rabbids

Rayman headlines this separate mini-campaign as Rabbid Peach and Rabbid Mario support the long-eared protagonist. Their journey leads to the dramatic Space Opera Network, an intergalactic TV studio brimming with cinematic references and Easter eggs. There’s been little sign of the hero since the Rayman Legends game, so it’s good to see him back.

At the helm lurks the operatic directorial villain Phantom, a familiar foe to Rayman devotees. Here he has converted the studios for his own nefarious productions. It’s up to our heroes to restore creative integrity through rigorous rating battles across varied levels.

These themed arenas pay homage to iconic film genres, infusing Rayman’s trademark humour and gameplay. Players can expect to encounter western saloon shootouts, swashbuckling pirate coves, creepy Victorian mansions and more.

Between productions, Phantom himself critiques the team’s performances – success requires impressing this temperamental critic. Choose tactics wisely lest the phantom manager cut the scene for excessive blunders.

Leveraging Rayman’s Classic Costume Abilities

Of course, Rayman’s legendary skins/costumes expand strategic options exponentially. The rocket booster enables aerial mobility, while the vortex manipulation opens portals. Leveraging powers creatively will be key to five star reviews.

Overall, this DLC provides a refreshing palette cleanser between Sparks of Hope’s dramatic struggle against Cursa and her darkness. Trading high stakes action for TV tropes and antics captures that nostalgic Rayman spirit many adored over the years.

Early impressions suggest a celebration of Ubisoft history beyond even the Mario crossover itself. Hidden collectibles and design choices show clear affection from the developers themselves. With nothing to talk about since Legends and Jungle Run, hopefully this is the catalyst to a revival for the hero.

For Sparks of Hope owners seeking either a fun diversion or meaningful new challenges, Rayman in the starring role looks to steal the spotlight. And the curated runtime should satisfy without overstaying its welcome.

As the curtain closes on this intergalactic adventure, Ubisoft has saved a crafty collab as the true finale. Old rivalries are put aside as gaming mascots unite for varietal showstopping entertainment. Take your seats, the phantom is waiting.
