Minecraft has come to the Wii U and can be picked in stores for $29.99 and includes add-on content packs in the Nintendo eShop for free.  This includes the recently released Super Mario Mash-Up Pack, which adds elements from the Super Mario series to the game.

In addition to the Super Mario Mash-Up Pack, the Wii U version of Minecraft features Battle & Beasts Skin Pack, Battle & Beasts 2 Skin Pack, Natural Texture Packs, City Texture Packs, City Texture Packs, Fantasy Texture Pack, and Festive Mash-up. 

“Even more Nintendo fans are going to love discovering the worldwide phenomenon of Minecraft on Wii U,” said Steve Singer, Nintendo of America’s Vice President of Publisher & Developer Relations. “The retail version of Minecraft: Wii U Edition is great for any video game fan that wants to get creative and see what the Minecraft phenomenon is all about.”

The Super Mario Mash-Up Pack is only available in Minecraft: Wii U Edition. The bonus content 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 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. Builders of all ages will love crafting massive new worlds using building blocks inspired by a series as accessible and iconic as Super Mario.
