Following the bankruptcy of beloved developer AlphaDream back in 2019, many a Nintendo fan wondered when, or even if, the next Mario & Luigi game would materialize. Revealed during today’s Nintendo Direct broadcast, Mario & Luigi: Brothership is that next installment, and it’s coming sooner than one might have expected: November 7, 2024! Take a look at the game in this trailer:

The series’ signature Bros. Attacks seem to be returning, along with the partner-based exploration that the games are known for. Here’s a bit more about the adventure according to Nintendo:

All aboard for an island-hopping RPG adventure starring Mario and Luigi! The brothers are back for a brand-new entry in the Mario & Luigi series, where they set sail on Shipshape Island (part ship, part island) to navigate the vast world of Concordia. Play as the mustachioed pair and explore islands that range from tropical rainforests to bustling cities. Along the way, meet new friends to help you on your journey and encounter familiar faces from the Mushroom Kingdom like Peach and Bowser. Keep the “Brothership” afloat and rely on Mario and Luigi’s bond to save the day by employing Bros. Moves to get past obstacles and powerful Bros. Attacks to claim victory in a dynamic twist on turn-based combat.

The game certainly looks the part of a Mario & Luigi adventure, but whether or not it will maintain the quality of the titles that preceded it is up in the air. Things are looking good so far, at least, particularly insofar as the visuals go—the colorful, expressive style of the original Mario & Luigi games is intact and thriving in Brothership. What do you think of the game so far? Share with us in the comments!
