Minecraft for Wii U was released in December 2015 and in May, Nintendo and Mojang have announced the addition of the Mario-themed mash-up pack, which is now available in the retail version of the game that reached the stores on June 17. The boxed version of Minecraft: Wii U Edition costs $29.99.

The Wii U Edition gamers can play this game on their GamePad using Off-TV Play feature and with the touchscreen functionality they can select items on the hotbar, explore the Crafting menu and do other things. Players can also play the game with the Wii U Pro Controller or the Wii Classic Controller and they can use the Mii characters as their in-game username.

The seven add-on packs that were released for Minecraft: Wii U Edition are the reason why the game is more expensive than the other versions of the Console Edition and they include Skin packs: Battle & Beasts skin pack and Battle & Beasts 2 skin pack; Texture packs: Natural texture pack, City texture pack and Fantasy texture pack; Mash-up packs: Festive mash-up and Super Mario mash-up pack.

In addition to the full game, the Wii U version of Minecraft comes with many of the most popular previously released content packs such as: Super Mario Mash-Up Pack, Battle & Beasts Skin Pack, Battle & Beasts 2 Skin Pack, Natural Texture Packs, City Texture Packs, Fantasy Texture Pack and Festive Mash-up.

The Super Mario Mash-Up Pack was introduced exclusively for Minecraft: Wii U Edition and it offers 40 new Super Mario-themed skins that will transform the game’s heroes into the familiar heroes such as Mario, Luigi and Princess Peach, or bad characters such as the seven Koopalings or Wario.

Players will have the ability to create their own Super Mario-themed locations, as the game will be redone, so buildings will be inspired from the constructions in the Super Mario game.
