Kicking its latest Direct off with a bang, Nintendo has unveiled Mario & Luigi: Brothership, which is heading to Switch on 7th November this year.

Brothership marks the Switch debut of Nintendo's long-running action-RPG series, and the first brand-new entry since Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam appeared on 3DS in 2015.

Nintendo's Brothership reveal didn't offer much in the way of specifics, but it's described as a "sea-faring adventure that unfolds across mysterious islands", and there's promise of "evolved moves" for the Mario brothers when it arrives.

Beyond that, it largely looks to be business as usual, aside from the cell-shaded visuals, which marks the first time the Mario & Luigi series has been in full 3D. There's exploration, platforming, mini-games, and more of the series' rhythmic turn-based combat - oh and plenty of familiar faces too.

Expect Nintendo to share further details in the run up to Mario & Luigi: Brothership's launch this November.
