In a match made in block-shaped heaven, Nintendo is partnering with Mojang and Microsoft to bring the imaginative worlds of Super Mario. and Minecraft together.
The Super Mario Mash-Up Pack 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 Bowser, Wario and all seven of Bowser's minions.
All the world and item textures in the game will also be redone, providing players the opportunity to create their own version of the Mushroom Kingdom within the world of Minecraft. While building, players will even enjoy listening to the smooth sounds of 15 pieces of Super Mario 64. music. Builders of all ages will love crafting massive new worlds using building blocks inspired by a series as accessible and recognisable as Super Mario.
