Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope is the sequel to the 2017 Kingdom Battle and has plenty of new and improved gameplay features. As with most tactics games, difficulty can be a hot-button topic. As players of all skill levels try to enjoy a game with their favorite Italian plumber, they might find the challenge too complex or simply too easy. Here is how to change the difficulty in Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope.

How to Change Difficulty Settings in Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope

At the beginning of the game, you’ll be able to choose your Difficulty setting between three different options. The game will disguise this when asking you how you want your time to be on the first planet. Your three options are:

  • Relaxing: For those who wish to kick back and enjoy the story. Enemies are weaker and deal less damage.
  • Average: Baseline difficulty for a balanced experience. Enemies are tough but fair.
  • Demanding: For a more intense challenge. Enemies are tougher and deal more damage. Hero management tasks are “hands on.”

Whichever you choose, don’t fret. You can always change these settings at any time. If you feel like the difficulty option you chose was wrong, all you need to do is hit the + button on your controller. Go to the “Settings” section and click on the “Gameplay” option. From here, you’ll be able to change the difficulty under the “Experience Setting” selection.
