"On May 17, the Super Mario Mash-Up Pack comes to Minecraft: Wii U Edition as a free game update. After downloading the update, players who own the Minecraft: Wii U Edition digital game, which launched last December, will have immediate access to new skins, a Super Mario-themed pre-made world and a set of Super Mario-themed music and item textures."

If you were looking for one of the coolest Minecraft updates it might be coming to the Wii U. The Super Mario Mash-Up Pack is going to add a ton of really incredible Mario themed gear in Minecraft making this version pretty compelling. I imagine you can get similar stuff on the PC with mods but this comes for free and automagically available to Minecraft Wii U owners.

Nice! I got Minecraft for the Wii U for my son a while ago.

Neat. Let me know how the new DLC plays when it drops.

I'm glad you posted this to let me know about it. I'm also glad I saw this post again a while ago, which reminded me about it. I loaded the game so I could get it for Vinny, but I didn't see this DLC listed. I went to the Nintendo eStore to find it, it wasn't there either. The game did tell me that updated data was downloaded, but that's about it. I finally figured out out to access it. If you choose to create a new world, you'll see the Mash-Up Pack in the options. I didn't play around with it, but I told Vinny about it. So, I don't have my own experience to share with you, just my initial impression of looking at the screen every now and then and hearing it while Vinny played it. The blocks do look like a mix between Mario and Minecraft, which should be expected. I think it looks kind of cool. At one point it looked like Vinny was in the Nether, which looked a lot like a place where you'd expect to see one of Bowser's castles. Although I recognized some music from Mario 64, some of it sounded kind of like a carnival, which I didn't really like. I may play around with it some time or watch Vinny play it some more. Anyway, I just thought I'd share my initial impression with you, since you asked.
