Minecraft: Wii U Edition is the big announcement for the day

Damon Baker, who works licensing at Nintendo of America, first announced on the Nintendo World Report’s Child’s Play podcast that there would be “something happening on Monday”. And, this appears to be the big news. Minecraft is officially coming to Nintendo’s Wii U console.

Mojang let the cat out of the bag this Monday morning with a silly video. The game will launch on the Nintendo eShop on December 17th and will cost $29.99. Also, below we have a gallery of screenshots for you to enjoy.
