Mario & Luigi: Brothership kicked off the latest Direct broadcast and although we've already seen a fair bit of footage of this new release, one thing Nintendo hasn't properly shown off just yet is the game's box art. Yes, it's been featured in listings here and there, but now, in the latest update, it's been given an official reveal on social media.

As you see it features Nintendo's famous duo, a new character called Snoutlet and a little bit of the world Mario and Luigi are about to explore known as Concordia. An empty background on the cover art (similar to Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey) also returns. Nintendo further notes how pre-orders are now live.

An official render of Mario in this new RPG adventure is also doing the rounds on social media. Here's a look:

In case you missed our initial coverage, in this new adventure Mario and Luigi will apparently be "all hands on deck" as they go on an island-hopping adventure in the world of Concordia with the help of Shipshape island ("part ship, part island").

While Nintendo hasn't revealed who the developer behind this latest entry is in the Mario & Luigi series, a representative of the company recently confirmed some of the original team members are involved in this new project. Mario & Luigi: Brothership sails onto the Switch this November.
