Mojang announces Minecraft for the Wii U, Coming December 17th.
Mojang announced the news this Monday morning that Minecraft will be coming to the Wii U, December 17th. It was rumored to be announced during Nintendo’s last Direct but never happened. On Mojangs web site they revealed a video, seen below, and more information about the game on Nintendo’s Wii U. They Said,
It’ll cost $29:99 or equivalent, will be available to download on the eShop, and comes bundled with six of our most popular add-on packs. There’s even a Festive mash-up included just in time for the holidays.
We’ll be adding more content packs to Wii U Edition in the near future (Wa-hoo!), and updating the core game with free updates, just like our other platforms. As a quick reminder: all DLC packs are optional. You can have significant amounts of fun playing Minecraft without spending extra cash.
Minecraft: Wii U Edition will also feature off-TV play, so you can continue playing on the Gamepad when other people want to use the TV for less fun things like movies or other video games.
We’ll have more to share on Minecraft: Wii U Edition closer to its release. Looking forward to welcoming you to the world of Minecraft, Nintendo fans!
