It’s finally here Nintendo fans. Minecraft will officially launch on Wii U on December 17th. To coincide with the launch, developer Mojang will also be including six of the game’s most popular content packs along with a festive Christmas pack just in time for the Holidays.
Mojang has also promised that there will be 16 additional content packs available post-launch. Mojang confirmed that special Nintendo themed content will be created collaboratively with Nintendo.
“We’ll be adding more content packs to Wii U Edition in the near future (Wa-hoo!), and updating the core game with free updates, just like our other platforms,” says Mojang’s Owen Hill. “As a quick reminder: all DLC packs are optional. You can have significant amounts of fun playing Minecraft without spending extra cash.”
The game will be available as a download on the Nintendo eShop and will include Off-TV play on the Wii U gamepad. Eager fans can purchase the game for $29.99 starting next week.
