Rayman is Coming to Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xzimiyxD88w



Pre-orders available now: https://www.nintendo.com/store/products/mario-plus-rabbids-sparks-of-hope-switch/
Rayman in Rabbids I get given Rabbids started off as a Rayman spin-off.
Yes.. And we can also make a female avatar nude too with this..



Edit : Oh my bad, it already exist.

True but the reason why I would like to mix-and-match Avatars is so that I could make a more accurate reputation of my character.

For example, here's what my Avatar in Sonic Forces look like:


Now on GMod and Source Filmmaler, you can get a mod that allows you to not only recreate your Sonic Forces avatar for GMod or SFM but also allows you to compile any body parts available in the mod pack. And with some ingenuity I know on retexturing and compiling existing models I manage to come up with this:


The SFM picture is much more accurate to my monkey character and that's because he has the mouth of a rabbit, ears of a female bear and tail of a cat.

If there was such a mod like this for SFM, I would make a Let's Play of sorts around it.

Who would guess that Rabbits could respect their elderly.

That looks a lot better.
A lot.
Aiai's ears feel too cartoonic and the lack of the long tail doesn't help too to make it monkey-ish.
Now it really looks like a monkey.

I doubt it since it's not officially approved by SEGA.

What Was The Last Official Sega Dreamcast Ever Released?





Quote
NSega’s last hurrah for first-party Dreamcast games was the Tetris-like Puyo Puyo Fever, which was released in Japan in March of 2004.
However, that wasn’t the de facto final official Dreamcast game ever.
In March of 2007, several days before the PlayStation 3 launched in Europe and Australia, Japanese Dreamcast owners also received the shoot ‘em up Karous.
So while many remember 2002 as the Dreamcast’s last year of even minor market relevancy, the console did live on for quite a few years beyond that.

Yeah. I wish there was such a mod for Forces to allow me to recreate my monkey.
Or better yet, have the animals that were cut from the game return.
I doubt it since it's not officially approved by SEGA.
That's a pity.

The horns are cool.
Why do they remove them?
May be because it's deemed devil-like appearance (that could change the ESRB rating)?

My guess Sonic Team had the Chinese zodiac animals in mind at first but figured dragons would be too OP of a choice.

Not confirmed yet, but judging from his unclean looks, he's either becoming poor or still rich but just don't want to stay in house anymore, becoming a street fighter literally.
According to the story leak, it's probably the later.
What's the point on going home if Eliza and Mel weren't there, for Ken his family used to be his everything, even the source of his strength.

So turned out Ken's leaked story was fake..
