To makes the console version somewhat extra engaging, Nintendo has teamed up with Mojang for some particular Mario-themed content material. It’s going to be out there as a free replace in Might and supply a bundle of character skins, merchandise textures and music ripped from the portly plumber’s world. There may even be a pre-made Tremendous Mario-themed map, simply in case your thumbs aren’t as much as the problem of crafting one from scratch.

Nintendo says the brand new materials is impressed by Tremendous Mario World, Tremendous Mario sixty four and Tremendous Mario Sunshine. Because the participant, you’ll be able to select to decorate up as iconic characters together with Mario, Luigi and Princess Peach, or mischievous foes like Bowser and Wario.
