Much to gamers' relief, E3 2021 stuck to its announced date and time to kick off the mega event in style. The E3 2021 schedule is in the public domain and it has helped generate immense interest in the gaming community for all the entertainment in store. The video games industry's biggest trade event of the year and the popular event kicked off on Saturday in an all-digital format a year after it was cancelled due to the pandemic. So far, new games like Unplugged and Wonderland have been announced and updates to Among Us have been revealed too. Now, Ubisoft has announced a Mario + Rabbids sequel coming next year, alongside a beautiful new game trailer for an Avatar game.

Game publisher Ubisoft on Saturday gave gamers a sneak peek at the company's upcoming game Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope for the Nintendo Switch that is expected to arrive next year, as reported by the Verge. The company also showed off a new cinematic trailer for the game, which shows off updated graphics and new elements on the popular strategy game.

While Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope has been announced four years after the original Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle was first revealed, it remains to be seen whether the game will be as successful as the original title when it launches. As The Verge notes, Kingdom battle offered a tactical action game that was one of the “best early Nintendo Switch games” when it was launched.

At its E3 2021 keynote, Ubisoft also revealed an incredible new trailer for a new game, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. The game is a fantastic new take on the original 2009 epic sci-fi movie that was directed, written and produced by James Cameron. Gamers are offered the visuals of the incredible world of the Na'vi, which allows them to explore their surroundings that also feature the same rich and detailed graphics.

As part of the trailer, gamers are also shown the dangerous RDA forces that seek to harm the Na'vi and their planet, with intense cinematic scenes of battle with the player (who is also Na'vi) astride a Mountain banshee, doing battle with a helicopter with armed soldiers inside. The world and its elements appear to be colourful and interactive, and the creatures and terrain both appear to feature lots of detail.

Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is also scheduled for release next year, and Ubisoft's announcement stated that the game will come to PCs and well as consoles like the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X and Series S. However, given the incredible graphics capabilities on these titles, it doesn't seem likely that it will be released for older consoles. However, it is slated for release on both Google Stadia and Amazon Luna, which is good for players lacking the hardware to play this game.
