Nintendo have announced that a Super Mario Mash Up Pack will be made free to all Minecraft Wii U players on 18th May.
The US market is also getting a physical copy of Minecraft for Wii U containing the main game and this new Mario pack. There’s no news on whether we’ll be getting the pack in the UK or Europe, though.
According to the press release, players will have access to “a Super Mario-themed pre-made world and a set of Super Mario-themed music and item textures. All this new content is inspired by games in the iconic Super Mario series, such as Super Mario World, Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine…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 Koopalings. 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 recognizable as Super Mario.”
