    It is official folks! Minecraft for Wii U has been announced today and will even feature off screen play! It comes on the eShop December 17th, and will cost 29.99USD.

    The game will feature off-TV play, so players can keep their games going on the screen of the Wii U GamePad controller if another family member wants to watch something else on TV. The game also comes with some of the most popular current Minecraft add-on content packs:


    • Battle & Beasts Skin Pack
    • Battle & Beasts 2 Skin Pack
    • Natural Texture Pack
    • City Texture Pack
    • Fantasy Texture Pack
    • Festive Mash-up Pack
    “With so many included add-on content packs, Minecraft: Wii U Edition brings an exciting collection of Minecraft content and experiences to Nintendo fans,” said Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America’s President and COO. “Wii U players will have plenty of reasons to keep coming back to this iconic gaming experience.”

    In addition to the content that comes with the game, players will also be able to expand their experience with 16 additional add-on packs available for purchase within the Nintendo eShop at launch:

    1. Festive Skin Pack
    2. The Simpsons Skin Pack
    3. Doctor Who Skins Volume 1
    4. Doctor Who Skins Volume 2
    5. Star Wars Classic Skin Pack
    6. Star Wars Rebels Skin Pack
    7. Star Wars Prequel Skin Pack
    8. Mass Effect Mash-up Pack
    9. Skyrim Mash-up Pack
    10. Plastic Texture Pack
    11. Candy Texture Pack
    12. Cartoon Texture Pack
    13. Steampunk Texture Pack
    14. Pattern Texture Pack
    15. Greek Mythology Mash-up Pack
    16. Halloween 2015 Mash-up Pack
    More add-on packs will also be available for the game in the future.

    I just saw this on NintendoEverything, and I really hope this isn't the "BIG announcement" they said would happen today.

    My boner died after what Square said about splitting up FF7. I'm still hoping Nintendo can be my Viagra!

    They've been teasing the new Pokemon game for a long time, it would be expected to officially announce it soon.

    DON'T GIVE THEM IDEAS

    There's already been slip ups about it and minecraft has been out long enough for even the vita have its own port.
    If this is their conception of "big", it's no wonder their last e3 was such a disaster.

    I wouldn't be surprised in Minecraft amiibo since that's what Nintendo seems to be doing these days.

    It's okay to like a video-game, but buy "Minecraft" things, overpriced, is not a VERY GOOD idea, I think !
