Minecraft is one of the most popular games out there and it is now available on consoles, desktop PCs and even on smartphones and tablets. Minecraft was also released for Wii U consoles back in December 2015 and it seems that a skin pack is about to be released for it, as well. This game is continuously evolving, so we should expect more skin packs and patch updates to be released for the Minecraft: Wii U in the near future.

Minecraft: Wii U is almost identical to the game on other platforms, but Nintendo has announced back then that it’s planning to release new content for this game in the near future. Well, the company has now announced that the Minecraft: Wii U version will receive Super Mario themed content, which includes 40 different character skins, new textures for the world and Super Mario 64 music.

In addition, the skin pack will come with a pre-made Mario world which was designed using all of the new content that the players can explore. The skin pack will be totally free and it will be available on May 17, 2016. Nintendo has also announced that it will release a retail version of the Minecrat: Wii U version on June 17, 2016, which will contain with the new Mario add-ons on the disc.

We remind you that Minecraft has many licensed skin packs, such as Doctor Who or The Simpsons, but this is the first time when Nintendo’s property is making its way to this popular game. Here is a trailer about the Super Mario Skin Pack for Minecraft: Wii U version:

Minecraft was launched in 2011, being created by Swedish programmer Markus “Notch” Persson and published by Mojang. In November 2014, Microsoft bought Mojang for $2.5 billion and continued to improve the game.
