From the now deleted web page from Nintendo:

– Build your dream team with three heroes from an eclectic roster of nine.

– Rescue the adorable Sparks throughout the galaxy, who provide distinct powers that will help you in battle.
– Unleash your heroes’ skills but be strategic as you dash your enemies, team jump on your allies, and hide behind covers.
