Minecraft: Wii U Edition gets some fresh paint this month with a Super Mario texture pack, pulling from classic games like Super Mario World, Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine. This pack includes 40 Mario skins, and 15 tunes from Super Mario 64. Classic baddies will get the Minecraft treatment, and players can run around as Mario, Peach, Luigi, and even Bowser. Just don’t try to jump on any hostile mobs, we promise it won’t end well. A randomly-generated Super Mario world awaits you, but new item textures will allow you to create your own Mario themed worlds.
Minecraft: Wii U Edition has become one of the top selling titles on Nintendo, and a Minecraft/Mario mashup is likely to keep it high on the list.
The Super Mario Mash-Up Pack arrives on Minecraft: Wii U Edition as a free game update on May 17th for those of you with a digital copy. The physical copy releasing June 17th will come with the Super Mario pack already included.
