It took years, and many had lost all hope, but Minecraft finally came to Nintendo Wii U late last year. When Minecraft: Wii U Edition was finally launched, it was only made available as a Nintendo eShop digital download. However, it looks like Minecraft has sold well enough on Nintendo’s home console to warrant a physical release. The official Minecraft Twitter account has just announced that Minecraft: Wii U Edition will be available in stores “soon.” We’ll keep a look out for an official release date.
Hey! Minecraft: Wii U Edition is already available on the Nintendo eShop, but soon you'll be able to buy it on disc in stores! Waa hoo!
