Finally, Mojang’s massively popular world-building game is coming to Nintendo in the form of Minecraft: Wii U edition.

  • Battle & Beasts Skin Pack
  • Battle & Beasts 2 Skin Pack
  • Natural Texture Pack
  • City Texture Pack
  • Fantasy Texture Pack

Mojang has announced that they are working with Nintendo on bringing exclusive content for Minecraft. Imagine Mario, Zelda, Kirby, Metroid and Pokémon all blocky and pixelated (breathe!). It’s also worth mentioning that the game will be playable on the Wii U pad if other family members are being boring and watching some rubbish on the TV.

Keep calm and hang tight – it’s only 10 days away.
