    Rejoice miners! An official version of Minecraft is coming to the iPhone, iPad and even the Android.

    Speaking with Kotaku earlier this month, Mojang's head of business development Daniel Kaplan said that while the developer had discussions with third party developers, in the end they decided to "do the iOS/Android version of Minecraft inhouse."

    The port is due out later this year.

    This may be the first time a port of a game hits a mobile device before the game itself is done. Minecraft remains in beta, with nebulous plans for a full release perhaps later this year.[/p]

    Notch is working on too many things at once. Minecraft isn't even out of beta and he's working on an iPhone, iPad and Android version. Well, if they're porting it to these portable devices (excluding the iPad), I suppose there's a chance it'll come out for the 3DS.

    It's pretty fun, it's pretty much what you do with it that makes it fun.

    If I had it, I would try and make the most ridiculous house anyone ever seen. [​IMG]

    Notch himself isn't working on these versions of Minecraft. Aron Neiminen, a new guy at Mojang is responsible for these ports.

    Unlike WarioWare DIY, it actually does depend on how fun you make it.

    I dug a massive cave that got me lost every time I explored deeper and quickly got bored.

    Is it free? If not, how much? Available on Steam?

    I think I'll get it, I'm needing a new PC game since Super Meat Boy and some shooters.

    This... is possibly the sole reason why I would think of getting an iPad.


    ZOMG. That's all I can say.
