Minecraft was released for the Wii U back in December 2015 via the Nintendo E-Shop and made a perfect fit for the Wii U, probably more so than any other video game console available today.

Compared to the likes of the Windows 10 version and Xbox version, the game is mostly the same but Nintendo wants to change that with a recently released Super Mario theme pack for the Wii U version. This is no doubt going to become very popular, and will be the envy of Minecraft players on other platforms.

The new content is set to launch on May 17, 2016, bringing with it a Super Mario themed world. Furthermore, 15 pieces of Mario-related music and 40 themes to spice up your Minecraft world are also included. This is definitely the best Minecraft theme packs we have ever seen, but unfortunately, it is only available on the Nintendo Wii U — a console on its way to the graveyard. Still, we’ve already seen several individuals claiming they are prepared to purchase a Nintendo Wii U just for this version of Minecraft, and why not? It’s the type of experience that can’t be found anywhere else.

The Super Mario theme pack is freely available via the E-Shop. Furthermore, those who purchase Minecraft for the Nintendo Wii U come May 17 on disk for $29.99 can also get it from the disk itself, so there’ll be no need to download it. If you’re interested in grabbing the digital version of Minecraft for the Nintendo Wii U, then jump to the E-Shop right here and pick it up.

Minecraft recently celebrated its 4th birthday on the Xbox. To celebrate, Microsoft made sure to gift players with several theme packs to help spice up their world. The packs are available for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One video game consoles only. You can also grab the Minecraft Xbox One Edition Favorites Pack come June 7 from the Xbox Store. As the name suggests, this will not be available on the Xbox 360.
