Mario & Luigi: Brothership Is A Brand-New Entry In The Series Coming Later This Year


Nintendo aired its promised June Nintendo Direct overnight, giving us around 40 minutes of new announcements, updates, trailers and releases for the Switch.

Immediately out of the gate, Nintendo dropped a pretty big surprise with a new Mario & Luigi title for the Switch, titled Mario & Luigi: Brothership and launching on November 7th.

The game comes complete with a great-looking cel shaded visual style, and looks to feature the series’ trademark humour, action and puzzle-solving. It’ll see the mustachioed brothers embark on a new adventure aboard the part-ship-part-island Shipshape Island, travelling the world of Concordia and saving the day as always.

Take a look at the debut trailer below:
