Notch denies Minecraft is coming to Wii U

Notch has confirmed that Minecraft for the Wii U is not currently in development.

wii-uminecraft

Over the holiday break, rumor surfaced that Minecraft was in active development for the Wii U. It turns out this is not the case, as Minecraft creator Notch–Markus-Persson–has taken to Twitter to squash the rumor. He says that while Minecraft for Wii U makes sense, it’s not in development because the team at Mojang simply has too much on their plate right now.


That’s a bummer, but perhaps we’ll see Minecraft on Wii U in the future once the team at Mojang expands, or perhaps Nintendo can persuade the team that Minecraft on Wii U is worth seeing.

Thanks jjbredesen!

    oh poop

  • Ducked

    Well you know if you love Nintendo… you may as well bring MineCraft to the Wii U… like soon! :)

    • Juan Benitez

      True.. and it makes perfect sense for Minecraft to come to Wii U

      Minecraft + Wii u gamepad = awesome game!

      • Ducked

        Also = perfect gameplay!

    • DarkLegacy

      You speak true words. And I’d love to see Minecraft on Wii U

  • jjbredesen

    It really sucks because Minecraft would be perfect on the Wii U, the gamepad could be used for inventory manegment, and viewing maps. It would make everything a lot easier!!

        • DarkLegacy

          You’re welcome. When Notch said “I <3 Nintendo" I always thought that he should put it on Wii U if he does love Nintendo

          • Kaihaku

            Or at least the 3DS. Instead it’s going to the Vita. Sigh.

          • DarkLegacy

            I’d like to see a 3DS version of it, but it depends if it does go on the 3DS

          • jjbredesen

            He should and i will keep spamming him untill he gives me a proper answer!

          • DarkLegacy

            It depends if you have a Twitter account

            yes i have twitter account XD

      Let us hope that Mojang AB will include these features in the Wii U port of Minecraft.

      Note: Mojang AB created Minecraft.

      • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

        i can wait for it

        • NintenScience

          But, Mojang AB should NOT reject us…

          • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

            it doesn’t matter i can wait for it

      • jjbredesen

        They should i am still waiting for a response from him and yeah i know Mojang created Minecraft XD played it since alpha.

  • Juan Benitez

    Well…… Didn’t see that coming.. Oh well, at least he likes Nintendo!!!!

      2015: Minecraft for Wii U
      Programmers: why the hell the game doesn’t sell well!?
      most of the gamers: em…. welll like 3 years later? who want it?

    • Filipe1020

      The exact same shit from the PC now on another console, what is the excitment about that?

      • Nicolas Dorion

        Well the gamepad would work well with the game mechanics, and there would be offline multiplayer. Like the xbox version except it wouldn’t be a pain to navigate through menues

        • The_Last_Metroid

          I only want it for the splitscreen to play with family

    • Noah Hood

      Will you please make Minecraft for the Wii U Markus? I would appreciate it.

  • Petri

    Well, if PS Vita version makes even more sense than Wii U version,
    my guess is Nintendo does not want to pay for him to port it.

    • BIG Franky

      which goes to show you how dumb Nintendo is… idiots.

      • Juan Benitez

        ….Nintendo being dumb?….. they are billionaires… just letting you know…

        • jjbredesen

          *billionaires

        • BIG Franky

          the fact that you automatically assume money=intelligence tells me you don’t know anyone with money, LOL…. trust me, as someone that works with very wealthy people, intelligence isn’t always part of the package.

          • Zorlac79

            Works with? Or for!? (wealthy people)
            Doesn’t pretty much EVERYONE work for “wealthy people”?
            Better yet, who works for poor people?
            O_o
            By the way, your punctuation and grammar is showing your intellect as well.

          • BIG Franky

            YES!!! definitely i work “for” them….assumed that was a given…. what I meant is that I interact with them on a daily basis. sorry for the confusion.
            oh noes! LOL…. you didn’t just go the “grammar route” on a discussion thread did you? LOL… don’t. just, don’t. it cheapens your argument…90% of us on here just type in the stream on consciousness on boards like this….as if we are talking. I edit enough in my “real life” we’re just trying to convey points on here, right? not writing to get a good grade… cmon man.

          • Zorlac79

            Yeah, I did go the grammar route.
            You see, I have a habit of not intentionally making myself look like an uneducated moron, no matter where I am.
            I also look into something before I state it as a fact, a practice you should exercise.

            I feel the opposite of you, as I think it cheapens your arguments when you have a hard time typing with basic grammar and punctuation.
            When you first see a post, before even reading a single word, you can tell if a comment will have any intellectual background.
            Any person with any kind of education follows that practice, I can assure you of that.
            How are you supposed to accept a “point that was conveyed” as any kind of logical argument when it comes from a 12 year old or even worse, a 20-30 year old with a 12 year old IQ?

          • BIG Franky

            sorry man…. I just don’t care enough and don’t think it impacts a discussion…if I can look past it, so can you (and you should)… I have 2 BS degrees, an MBA, and A JD… I write for a living (as a technical writer)…. not too worried about what people on a video game thread think of me intellectually, LOL… sorry.

      • starwars360

        You very sad person. Wii U and PS Vita continue better sales meanwhile PS4 and 3DS continue madness crazy sales so Nintendo and Sony will be fine and they will be here forever!! You crying that Wii U continue around here without dead like Dreamcast or Virtual Boy. Oh AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA OH AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA OH AHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

        Nintendo and Sony always print money anyway!!! :):):)

        I love read trolls and fanboys who got glues on chair and hopeful Wii U or PS Vita continue downhill and discontinued it in future by Nintendo or Sony but that will never happens.

        Knock my door and give me big kiss and I give you giant SLAM!!! :)

        Your name is BIG F-Shitty!!!

        • Prince Marth IV

          Could you please repeat that in English?

          • NintenScience

            xddd

  • D.M.T

    He said he loves Nintendo lol. Are we supposed to believe that? If he did love Nintendo then he would be working on a Wii U version.

    Seriously why are 3rd party devs so stupid most of the times? A Wii U version of Minecraft makes more sense than a PS4 version.

    • BIG Franky

      are you serious? they have much more lucrative projects that they are working on rather than make a game that will sell 167 copies because the install base is so small…. stop being a blind fan-boy and get back to reality.
      a PS4 version makes perfect sense since there are more consoles out there (by end of March at least) and there are no family friendly games avail for it. this will explode on PS4 wherein it wont sell on Wii U because not enough people will buy it… omigosh dude, gimme a break! use your head, man!

      • Christopher Acuna

        No.

      • http://ejercitogeek.net/ Mercurio2054

        you don’t have the facts for that…

        • BIG Franky

          well, based on what has already been sold and documented pre-sales from Japan (which release in March), the PS4 will have approx. 5 million consoles (at least) sold by end of March… I don’t think Nintendo will have that…. and even if they do, its a much smaller growth rate…. (i.e., better outlook/prospects for game developers to release games on the other consoles)…

          • Yoshifan3

            totally agree man, but some people on here have their head in the sand, so i wouldnt waste my time, the wii u is a great system, but it will just be a first party system just like the last 2 consoles.

            i love the wii u, but sometimes the fans are the worst. they say they will buy 3rd party games, but they dont. instead they buy first party games. then they complain when the same company doesnt release a game for their platform due to low sales. even i understand when its gimped, thats totally fine. but when they actually try to make the best version, nobody buys it.

          • BIG Franky

            THIS. couldn’t agree more…. when Minecraft finally does come out for Wii U (and I think it will eventually…most likely sooner than later)…. these same idiots will cite Notch’s tweet as their reason for NOT buying it… (as if they were going to in the first place… NOT!) LOL

          • jjbredesen

            The Wii U has sold about 4,8M consoles so far and just sold 100K in one week, and yet you say that it will not sell close to 5M? XD The sales are getting better and better and i am sure once the PS4 and Xbone hype is done, the sales of the two systems will start to calm down. I predict that the Wii U will sell 60-70M consoles in its lifetime. If we look at the facts we know that the Wii U has sold about 4M in its first year, and it has been a bad year when i comes to games. We have not gotten anything big befoe Pikmin 3 came out, the more games that have come out the more sales the Wii U has had. And they have really gotten better in the last 2 months. Next year we have got loads of great games hitting like MK8 and Smash bros and Mario Kart Wii and Brawl really helped Wii sales a lot, and MK7 sort of is the reason the 3DS started to sell so great.

            Next year i think it will sell about 10M so by the end of 2014 there will be about 15M consoles sold. Then we have Zelda U, Metroid, Star Fox and maby F-zero for 2015? I dont know what we will se, but there will be games. And we also have Miyamotos new IP. I think that this + whatever else will be shown should let the Wii U sell about 8M in 2015. So it has now sold 26M. 2016 —> i have no clue what will come, but if we say that this gen will last until 2023 I think the Wii U will do very well. It will sell better than the Gamecube that i am 100% sure of.

            So when you say the Wii U will not do good enough for game devs to jump onboard i think you will be wrong.

            If the Wii U gets some good 3rd party exclus ives the future look verry good. And the sales could be even better next year. I am 100% sure that we will not have a year as bad as this one. Not untill the verry end of its life cycle.

            But that is just my opinion.

          • BIG Franky

            even though I think your estimates are way high… I just want to clarify… I NEVER said (or even implied) that I thought the Wii U wouldn’t do well! I said that it doesn’t make sense RIGHT NOW for game developers to take a risk on for development purposes.

      • NintenScience

        Wow, the hate on the Wii U

        • BIG Franky

          bro, I am not hating on the Wii U… I love my Wii U! I just hate when people make idiotic comments and say stuff like “the companies owe it to Nintendo to make games for the platform” or “these companies have it out for Nintendo and want them to fail so they don’t bring their games to the platform” etc etc blah blah blah…. stuff like that….
          guys, these are multi-million dollar companies that make decisions based on the bottom line…. from that perspective, given the current trajectory of console sales among the platforms, there is more opportunity elsewhere (better on PS4/XB1 than on Wii U)…. its just about the bottom line… nothing personal.

          • Phillip Fauble

            EA has it out for Nintendo. I don’t know that any other devs/publishers are making a point to slander them though.

      • Zorlac79

        Speaking of being a blind fan-boy. . .

        I bet soooooo many people are dying to buy a game they most likely already have for their next gen (now current gen) system.
        I bet it will make BILLIONS!!! omigosh, I used my head!

        • BIG Franky

          as of right now, if being released for both PS4 & Wii U on the same day, minecraft would sell more copies on PS4… that cant even be disputed. Nintendo people don’t buy third party games… facts are facts. do I think it would do well on Wii U? yes… definitely, but would it do better on PS4? I think it would…..these companies only have so many resources… they have to prioritize, and from a business standpoint… PS4 has to take precedence.

          • Skelterz

            Nintendo people?…

          • BIG Franky

            yeah.

          • Skelterz

            Big franky has a small brain.

          • Zorlac79

            Like I said in my other post, why then was the PS3 given the lowest priority?

          • BIG Franky

            it wasn’t… mojang entered into an exclusivity deal with Microsoft before the game ever became the phenomenon that it is. as soon as that agreement expired… BOOM…. onto the PS3!

          • Zorlac79

            Woops, my bad.
            Never cared enough to know that before, but I looked into that and you are correct.

          • Skelterz

            Your mum entered an exclusivity deal with me as soon as it ended boom i killed her.

      • Zackary Bruley

        Bo Burnum said it best:
        “This guys a virgin.”

    • Magnus Eriksson

      I wish I had your simple understanding of reality. Things would be so much easier then.

      • jjbredesen

        What he means is that a Wii U version would make more sense in terms of gameplay, (you can use the gamepad for inventory manegment and crafting) and that is a pain on pc, on the PS4 it will sell better, but it would be the same as the ps3/360 version, with minor updates.

        • Martijn Plasmans

          They wont make big bucks from a Wii U version. As simple as that.

          • jjbredesen

            I am sure that will change once the “U”-turn hits the rest of the world.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            It will. No reason what so ever that it woudnt change if Wii U makes an U.

          • Yoshifan3

            hey mag, theres finally some entertaiment on the wii u comments section! a kid that thinks hes a troll is trolling the comment section lol.

            Why have our comments got 2 downvotes?

          • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

            Don’t Know but some as upvote

        • greengecko007

          They can make more money by porting it to the PS3 and not adding anything to it. If it were to come to the Wii U, I would fully expect it to have gamepad integration with UI relocation, touchscreen controls for organizing inventory, and off TV play. It would also need a Miiverse community. All of those features would cost money to make, and for indie developers like Mojang don’t see any room profit in that.

          • jjbredesen

            It would not cost them anything just time. It would not take verry long, they already know how to program for touch screens and could use a bit of resources from MC:PE (Input), the hard part is that the Wii U does not suport java script…. So they would have to re creat huge parts of the code in C++ and that takes time. Miiverse would be cool, because it lets you share you creations with other people so if they could let you share you world folder through Miiverse that would be awesome.

            Its not that hard, put i don’t know if the Miiverse post system can handle files as big as what a world file would be. They could of course compress it to the exstreme, but it would take a lot of work from both sides.

          • greengecko007

            Time adds costs. They may be an indie developer, but they don’t work for free.

            I absolutely think it can be done, and that we may see Minecraft on the Wii U in the future, but right now, Mojang prioritizing the PS3 over the Wii U makes perfect sense, even if fanboys don’t want to admit it.

          • jjbredesen

            Yeah that is true.

      • D.M.T

        Keep your sarcasm to yourself Magnus, you’re not even funny

        • Magnus Eriksson

          Didnt try to be. Im honestly very jelous. Things would be much easier if I had your understanding of reality.

    • Majora’s Mask

      lets be real if the wii u sold as much as the ps4 it would have probably already come to the console

      • Zorlac79

        I can’t wait to see how many Xones and PS4s are being sent back to the return centers since they weren’t able to be sold at an inflated price on Ebay before the holidays.
        Yes the systems sold millions, but many were to scalpers that bought several at a time.
        All of those are now being returned to the stores, lol.
        They then have to be opened in order to be returned, then returned to the manufacturer to be tested and repackaged.
        That is a federal law. Electronic equipment can not be sold as new once used, guidelines must be followed.

        • BIG Franky

          I agree that there was probably a lot of this going on …. BUT, relative to total sales I am sure it is an insignificant percentage.

          • Zorlac79

            If there was an average of every user only buying one console and scalpers buying two to three, it will make a very large impact.

            Also, “lets be real if the wii u sold as much as the ps4 it would have probably already come to the console”; what would be your answer for it just now coming out on the PS3?

            If it was install base, why was the PS3 last to get it?

          • BIG Franky

            Microsoft jumped early on and got the exclusivity (console) deal before minecraft became the phenomenon that it is.

      • Kaihaku

        By that logic, why is it getting a Vita port and not a 3DS port?

        • Phillip Fauble

          Probably the hardware honestly. It’s not super weak by any means… but I feel like porting to 3DS would be pretty expensive.

      • D.M.T

        It doesn’t have to sell as much as the PS4, they just need to make sure the Wii U version is successful sales wise.

    • leo

      IK right?!

    • greengecko007

      If you could only work on developing for one console at a time, would you honestly choose Wii U over the PS3? If you choose the later, you have a much greater chance at making money.This decision is about making easy money, and believe me, there are plenty of Sony fanboys that don’t own a half way decent PC to play Minecraft on that bought this.

      Also, what happened to Nintendo fans not wanting inferior ports? That’s exactly what this is. The game even has DLC texture packs, which is a slap in the face considering you can get thousands for free on the PC.

      • D.M.T

        If i had to choose between the Wii U and PS3 I would choose the Wii U and here’s why: Wii U is the future of this industry while other consoles are not. The future of video games is the gamer having a second screen experience which in my opinion is better than just the TV. Another reason is because developing for the Wii U is more fun in my opinion and cheaper than developing for PS4 and XBO. To me it wouldn’t be just about making money, it would be about making money in a way that is fun. Shin’en is a 3rd party developer that only develops for Nintendo consoles and they are making money and having fun.

        Inferior ports shouldn’t even be an option to these lazy ass developers. Why make inferior ports and then complain that you didn’t make money on Nintendo consoles? That is contradicting themselves and only idiots love to contradict themselves. Make a great Minecraft game for Wii U and it will sell, simple as that. I told you once and i’m telling you again, stop defending anti-consumer practices from these 3rd party developers.

    • Kaihaku

      I can understand why it isn’t going to the Wii U… But it makes absolutely no sense to prioritize a Vita version over a 3DS version.

      • D.M.T

        It doesn’t make sense to skip the Wii U and it makes even less sense to make a Vita version.

  • Justagamer

    I hope so but if not atleast i have it for the 360

  • Squid

    I feel like the time it comes to wii U no one will care.

    • palomino blue

      I’m surprised anyone cares now.

    • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

      finally everyone care’s now for the Wii U

      • Squid

        I don’t mean they don’t care for Wii U, I mean they don’t really care for Minecraft anymore. Seriously, I don’t see what’s fun about it anymore.

  • Googs

    That’s a little bit disappointing, although understandable. Maybe in the future it’ll happen, who knows :)

    Maybe Scrolls and Cobalt would go Wii U!

  • Brandon

    if capcom & notch had a dev kit then they are both collecting dust. :P

    • Zorlac79

      As things get better, they will be dusted off.

      I do like my Xone, but my Wii U is the only system this gen so far to innovate and offer new experiences.
      Many people are realizing that and the fact that it will be a while before we see some good things on the Xone or PS4, much like what happened with the Wii U.

      • Brandon

        no it won’t capcom support is D-E-A-D on wii u because they have no future games for wii u! get over it! as for minecraft… not happening on wii u either! >=P plus avalanche studios won’t support it either & will MUCH rather support xb1 & ps4 & NO WII U IS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE A 1ST PARTY ONLY MACHINE!

        • Zorlac79

          Personally, I could care less from support from either.
          For the last several years and many games, Resident Evil is crap now. Besides that, the rest of their games are just plain mediocre IMO.
          I guess you are trying to troll me with that 10 year old maturity comment, but I am well past piss ants like you and not a fanboy by any means.
          On your way to maturity, learn how to read and write, it will be necessary if you don’t want to be stuck at your fast food job for ever.
          Then you will be able to afford more than one system and possibly lose you fanboy sickness.

          • Zorlac79

            Again, showing you maturity, or lack of. . .
            Seems like I hit the nail right on the head.
            I made a decent comment and you fired off on me for no reason.
            If you don’t like Wii U, why are you here? Just so you know, this IS a Wii U site.

            Look at it this way:
            Wii U with only 1st party support = still a great system.
            Xbox or Playstation with only 1st party support = dead.

          • Brandon

            I LOVE MY WII U! BUT WHOEVER SAYS WII U IS A 1ST PARTY ONLY SYSTEM IS FUCKING DEAD TO ME! like nintendo wanted the hardcore back? >=(

          • Zorlac79

            Where did that come from?!?! Issues??
            Who said it is a 1st party only system?
            Time for your pills man!

          • Captinn2

            It really started when you started ranting like ome fat ass gamer about how Minecraft i=won’t make it to Wii U. Your starting to get more ANNOYING than funny. Sheesh. You sound like my annoying Xbone lover 7-year-old Aydyn e.e

          • Yoshifan3

            if hes annoying you, that means hes winning. i learned to deal with it for months. its just now funny to watch him go on other websites and do this.

          • Captinn2

            So what do I do? Just watch him rant? Sounds fun.

          • Yoshifan3

            laugh, feel sorry for him (dont really), just get a soda and some chips and watch the entertainment, its pure comedy gold.

          • Captinn2

            Well, I have Canada Dry and Lays Chips(regular), so I will enjoy the movie! x3

            I mean Yoshifan3 didn’t even used as Many Full caps as you did or used profanity, or even used a “Your mom” in a sentence. pathetic really…. (Inb4 you call me a troll too)

          • Brandon

            WTH!? HE started it!

            I was fine until yoshifan showed up with his “starfox” garbage plus why did you take a picture!? trying to get me arrested & humilliated!?

          • TaintedXGamer

            no, and i hardly see how that is gonna get you arrested. I’m not reporting anything. so you have some beef with yoshifan3. no wonder you got upset/mad. .-.

          • Brandon

            the picture as in the link! oh and I have beef with him because 1.he started this & 2.he is making fun of me!

          • Yoshifan3

            nah, theres no beef, i just like pissing him off because he was like this on this sites forum, well i got in trouble for that, so here there are no mods, rules, and i can make fun of him all i want, all this swearing he does he did on the forum, he literally came on there to get perma banned, and now hes doing it here. i gave some tips to drive him off though, so hopefully that works.

          • Brandon

            not really! >=P just because I got perma-banned you treat me like a cunt!?

          • Yoshifan3

            not really what? what part are you replying to?

            also, star fox 2 wii u edition! i hear nintendo is making it just for you!

          • Brandon

            not really as in you drived me off! & QUIT IT WITH THIS STARFOX GARBAGE! I got a feeling you don’t even like starfox!

          • Yoshifan3

            are you kidding? star fox 64 is my favorite n64 game of all time. i used to play it all the time.

            if only it had online, i could play with brando!

          • Brandon

            and n64 kicks wii/u’s ass in many ways & the remake sucked & killed the damn franchise!

          • NintenScience

            The Star Fox video games are awesome.

            You mad?

            Edit: The down-vote on my comment proves my point.

          • Captinn2

            Personally, I think Earthbound is the best RPG game ever made.

          • Yoshifan3

            i feel that, honestly though im just here to piss this kid off, he got perma banned on this sites forum,

          • Captinn2

            He makes one horrible troll. Look a little bit down and see what I said e.e.

          • Brandon

          • Brandon

            STOP FUCKING MAKING FUN OF ME YOU CUNT!!!!!

          • NintenScience

            What?

  • Fred

    It would have been worth it a year ago, but I am a Boy Scout Leader so I work with boys every week. For awhile boys were begging their parents for an Xbox so that they could play minecraft and they played all day every day. Now it’s wearing off and they don’t talk about it much anymore. This would have been a great project, now Nintendo should be looking for something new.

  • companyoflosers

    just wait until they are done with the ps4 and xb1 versions. they will have more free time and maybe mojang and nintendo will start talking. nintendo has to learn to talk first though. who knows how may titles could have been but were passed up simply because nintendo doesn’t pursue them, they just lazily send out a devkit and expect devs to know what they want.

    • calum davison bowden

      Um… Nintendo approached 4J studios when they acquired Wii U devkits, but I agree, hopefully this will get Nintendo talking more to other studios to get more titles. Another thing that really annoys me(aimed at everyone)- Mojang aren’t responsible for console ports, 4J is.

        Ah yes, also on Wii Boxing. Ahh Manny Pacquiao does not intend to hurt people like Notch in real boxing rings. Ahh, sorry for the mistake, english is not my first language. God Bless.

  • Stephen Macneil

    I don’t own minecraft but I would get it for wii u

  • Sdudyoy

    In all honesty I don’t see the point of buying a version that has less content than the one I already own, the PC version will always be better, and I already own it.

  • Møhåmmęd Jårmøn

    Minecraft is perfect for WiiU. I would play it exclusively on WiiU lol and I have it for PC iOS and Xbox

    • Zorlac79

      Same here, I think it would get me playing again.

  • Gabe Hoffman

    I think you mis quoted him Ashley he said he is not aware of any plans for a Wii U version

  • leo

    Why WHY!!!!! Every console is getting it beside Wii U I smell some thing FISHY. Or they secretly don’t want to suppport.

  • Yoshifan3

    guys just an fyi, brandon is really easy to pick on, if hes insulting you (which is likely) just remind of his most hated game ever made: star fox. just ask him ” wanna play some star fox?” guarenteed if everyone says that, it will be alot more fun for you, and a misery for him to be on this site, you may drive him off. i should know, this kid got perma banned on this sites forums for this kind of stuff

    • Captinn2

      Thank for the tip >:D

      • Brandon

        SCREW YOU!

    • Brandon

      FUCK YOU!

    • NintenScience

      @yoshifan3:disqus and @brando67854321:disqus?

      lol

  • Nicolas Dorion

    It would be a good port. I can see how you would craft stuff and have your inventory on your gamepad and you would see the game on the screen, so you won’t have to interrupt your game constantly to craft or to select items…

  • Leo

    People wouldn’t buy a console to play minecraft specifically anyway, but that would surely be a very welcome bonus. If they are analysing the current trend they can see that the WiiU is slowly rising in sales, as the casual buyers are finally migrating from the Wii to WiiU. Notch should consider investing on WiiU right now.

  • Kaihaku

    I can understand why Minecraft U isn’t a priority… But seriously, Minecraft Vita is a bigger priority than Minecraft 3DS? Really?

  • Josie the Sketcher

    Although it’s a shame that it may not be coming to the Wii U, i’m not too fussed. When I played it on my ipad, I found it pretty boring but that’s my opinion. It’s probably much better on a controller anyway. Maybe Nintendo will release something similar, I hope!

    • classicgamer20

      MInecraft is not meant for the i Pad. If you want the full experience play it on a computer.

  • DarkK

    I….really don’t care. I’ve never been a fan of Minecraft anyway.

  • zX Excalibur Xz

    having your inventory and crafting on the pad while playing on the screen, makes the Wii U the perfect console for Minecraft.

  • John

    Who said it was coming in the first place? Hmmm I wonder..

  • http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B008SRISGU#reader_B008SRISGU Adam Howell

    I played minecraft on PC for about a month when it was in beta… or alpha.. Ran a server from my pc and played with friends. It was fun at first but once you learn the rules of the sandbox it starts to depend on your own creativity to invent fun things to do. I don’t have he drive or attention span to gain interest in it again, but it would be nice on the Wii U if only because it’ll make the wii U a viable option for kids who feel the need to get their minecraft fix.

  • DarkYoshi

    Argh, I hate how people get downvotes for writing the actual truth:
    Developers do not develop for consoles they wont earn on, It’s like suicide.
    You can’t tell indie devs to be “nice” to Nintendo. Nintendo needs to grab this chance
    themselves, and give Mojang a great deal.
