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.

Before I became a Geek Under Grace I was a student of Journalism and have always aspired to write for a gaming and geek culture publication. I am truly blessed to have found an outlet to reach not only thousands of fans, but those who may not have yet found Christ.

My favorite genre of games is third-person/sandbox games. I like the freedom that they allow both in gameplay and in scale and they just seem less bland and limited than more linear titles. I still have a soft spot for RPG games but I now enjoy JRPGs far less than I did as a child because they are still basically the exact same as they always were, with a few exceptions of course. I also enjoy playing more tactical third-person multiplayer shooters or first-person shooters that try to shake things up.

I absolutely hate games based on WWII or Vietnam as those settings and those types of gameplay have been done to death. Though I am not opposed to a future Assassin's Creed title being set during one of these wars. I also typically tend to stay away from MOBA's as they are notorious for abusive, and generally unsavory online communities.

My favorite game of all time is Chrono Trigger, which ironically enough is a JRPG but its one that I consider untouchable in quality. The runner-up for my favorite game of all time would be Star Fox 64.
