Well, this news definitely came out of nowhere and totally did not expect this. However, it seems that Nintendo has partnered with Mojang and Microsoft, all of the companies and are bringing Super Mario DLC to Minecraft for the Wii U.
Starting on May 17, 2016, games who already own Minecraft for the Wii U will be able to download the Super Mario Mash-up pack, which will add new skins, a Super Mario themed world, Super Mario music and item textures. There’s also a retail version of Minecraft that comes complete with the Super Mario Mash-up pack that will be released on June 17 for $29.99.
My son is going to love this!
