Microsoft’s Mojang and Nintendo is teaming up to bring Super Mario to Minecraft on the Wii U. Mojang will be releasing a new “Super Mario Mash-Up Pack” for Minecraft on the Wii U, which will bring 40 new Super Mario-themed skins, and the game’s textures will also get an improved look, and much more:
The Wii U version of Minecraft features the full game, as well as many of the most popular previously released content packs for no extra charge. Downloading the Super Mario Mash-Up Pack gives players 40 new Super Mario-themed skins, which transform the game’s characters into familiar heroes like Mario, Luigi and Princess Peach, and even troublemakers like Bowser, Wario and all seven of Bowser’s minions. All the world and item textures in the game will also be redone, providing players the opportunity to create their own Super Mario-themed locations within the world of Minecraft. While building, players will even enjoy listening to the smooth sounds of 15 pieces of music from Super Mario 64. Builders of all ages will love crafting massive new worlds using building blocks inspired by a series as accessible and recognisable as Super Mario.
Nintendo has released a video showing off the upcoming pack which you can watch below:
The new Super Mario Mash-Up Pack will roll out on May 18 as a free update for Minecraft on the Wii U. It isn’t known if Mojang will be bringing this to other platforms, but that probably won’t happen considering the fact that they have teamed up with Nintendo, and this is most likely an exclusive for the Wii U.
