Nintendo has announced that the Super Mario Mash-Up Pack is now available for Minecraft: New Nintendo 3DS Edition as part of a free update.

A friendly partnership between Nintendo, Mojang and Microsoft, this pack includes a whole host of Super Mario-themed characters and environments for you to play with and explore. Players can try to stand strong against blocky versions of Hammer Bros. and Dry Bones, just as they would with Creepers and Zombies.

The pack originally launched for the Wii U edition of the game (as shown in the trailer above), although this release was over two years ago. We're quite surprised that it's taken this long to come over to the 3DS version of the game, but free content is never a bad thing. Make sure to update your copy of the game to get the latest goodies.
