Minecraft unlikely on Wii U

Minecraft unlikely on Wii U

Load of blocks

Nintendo's eShop may be attracting a lot of small developers but Mojang, the team behind smash hit Minecraft, doesn't seem very keen on the idea.

Speaking in an interview with Edge, Mojang's Jens Bergensten had this to say:

Microsoft has an exclusivity deal for consoles. When it runs out we'll consider Minecraft for PlayStation, but Wii U is very unlikely.

Unfortunate news, since the Wii U's GamePad could be considered a natural fit compared to standard console controllers.

Would you like to see Minecraft come to Wii U, or is it old news already?

I would love for Minecraft to be on the Wii U. It's certainly a great fit considering you can use the Gamepad touch screen just like you would a cursor on a Computer. While still retaining the dual analog and control scheme that the game would require for being on consoles.

I've been saying Minecraft would be great on Wii U since the console came out. The Gamepad really would be perfect. A shame they're not considering it.
