'Minecraft' (ALL) Adds Super Mario On Wii U, Free Birthday Skin Pack On Xbox

Minecraft: Xbox One Edition is a sandbox building game which allows players to build, construct and craft objects in a cubic world.

Minecraft is a game based on limitless creativity and building in a three dimensional sandbox world.

Minecraft on Xbox is turning another year older, so Microsoft are releasing the 4th Birthday Skin Pack as a free download for Xbox One and Xbox 360 editions, along with our three previous Birthday Skin Packs!

It´s hard to believe it´s been four years since Minecraft arrived on Xbox consoles, and we´ve enjoyed every minute of it. We all know birthdays call for a celebration and we want to make sure that you can dress up for the occasion, so starting today through May 16 you´ll be able to download the 4th Birthday Skin Pack for Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition and Minecraft: Xbox One Edition for free. But that´s not all! Even if you´re new to Minecraft and missed out on the previously released Birthday Skin Packs, you´ll be able to download our three previous Birthday Skin Packs (conveniently named 1st, 2nd and 3rd Birthday Skin Pack!).

So, be sure to grab these celebratory offerings while they´re available, so you can amaze your friends and family by wearing your “I got the anniversary t-shirt” t-shirt.

Happy crafting!

Nintendo is partnering with Mojang and Microsoft to bring the imaginative worlds of the Super Mario series and Minecraft together. For the first time ever, players will be able to fend off blocky Hammer Bros. and Dry Bones the same way they do Creepers and Zombies.

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. All this new content is inspired by games in the iconic Super Mario series, such as Super Mario World, Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine. When the retail version of Minecraft: Wii U Edition launches in stores on June 17 at a suggested retail price of $29.99, the Super Mario Mash-Up Pack will be included on the disc.

“Both the Super Mario franchise and Minecraft embrace the magic of exploration and discovery,” said Steve Singer, Nintendo of America’s Vice President of Publisher & Developer Relations. “Players will have a great time adventuring and creating in this free game update that embraces the unique and memorable elements of both franchises.”

The Wii U version of Minecraft features the full game, as well as many of the most popular previously released content packs for no extra charge. Downloading 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 Koopalings. All the world and item textures in the game will also be redone, providing players the opportunity to create their own Super Mario-themed locations within the world of Minecraft. While building, players will even enjoy listening to the smooth sounds of 15 pieces of music from Super Mario 64. Builders of all ages will love crafting massive new worlds using building blocks inspired by a series as accessible and recognizable as Super Mario.
