Wii U Version of Minecraft is Extremely Unlikely
MinecraftÂ truly is the indie success story in the games industry. Originally a smash hit on PC, the retro styled open world crafting and survival sim has since been ported to Xbox 360 and, as of a short while ago, PlayStation 3, having amassed sales exceeding 33 million units across all three platforms.
However, unfortunately for Nintendo fans, Mojang currently has no plans to release Minecraft on Wii U, despite the obvious areas in which the game could be enhanced with the GamePad’s second screen. This was confirmed when Minecraft creatorÂ Markus Persson took to Twitter, stating:
I agree a Wii U version would make sense, btw. The only reason for no current plans is we’ve got too much work already. I <3 Nintendo.
