We've got our hands on 20 gorgeous looking screenshots for you to admire, as well as our first glimpse at the game's box art. We could waffle on about how pretty it all looks or attempt to over analyse the meaning behind Luigi's decision to pull up in a Mario Kart vehicle, but we figured we'd skip that and get right into the good stuff. Enjoy!
