Minecraft: Wii U Edition has been available for some time and, though it’s a remarkably good video game, it’s not felt especially Nintendo-ey. That’s about to change!As you can see from the spiffy trailer up there, a free Mario Mash Up pack is on its way to Minecraft: Wii U Edition. It features a Mario-themed world, 16 original super-tunes from Mario 64, a specific Mario-themed texture pack, and a heap of skins featuring your favourite Mario-buddies. In fact, there are over 40 characters to play as. Of course, the two plumber guys and the princesses are included but we’ve even packed in some of the cheekier folk like Kamek, one of the Hammer Bros and that pernicious plant, Petey Pirahna. It’s a delightful mix, all in all.
Did I mention that the Mario Mash Up pack is completely FREE? Yes, I did. Sorry.
All existing owners of Minecraft: Wii U Edition will get the pack on May 17th as a free update, but it’ll also come with the retail version of Minecraft: Wii U Edition which is due to appear in-stores from June 17th. The disc comes in a box which makes it a great, wrappable gift for friends or loved ones. Just sayin’.
Both the digital and the retail version of Minecraft: Wii U Edition costs $29.99, 30 golden coins, or the equivalent in your region.
