Mario Minecraft!

I'm happy that this is finally releasing! Mario is getting a place in Minecraft, after it was announced last year with the release of Minecraft for Wii-U that the mustachioed one and his pals would have content in the game down the line. And it's coming next week! Nintendo announced yesterday morning that the "Super Mario Mash-Up Pack" will be available free next week on May 17th to Wii-U consoles. Starting June 17th, future versions of the Wii-U will be bundled with Minecraft and the add-on pack for $30 extra (to cover the cost of the game).

The downside is that this is only going to be available for Wii-U. There are no plans to expand it to other systems at this time, and it makes sense (as much as that sucks). Nintendo likes to keep their products on Nintendo platforms.

Users will get new skins featuring Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Toad, the Koopa Kids, and more. As well as Mario textures to the entire Minecraft landscape including items, and music from Super Mario 64. Enemies and creatures in the world will also change to replicate the mobs from the games. And it looks like it'll include a pre-made world with homes and areas that mimic some of the levels in Super Mario. Let's see what crazy things people can come up with in their worlds...and hopefully not get banned by Nintendo.
