Minecraft Wii U Edition

Minecraft Comes To Wii U December 17


It took a ridiculously long time, but finally — on the eve of the NX — Minecraft will be released for the Wii U later this month.

The gamepad has great potential as a Minecraft controller, more so than any other console controller, so why did it take THIS long for the game to come to this system? We don’t have answers, but now that the two are finally together, why gripe further?

Add-on-wise, the Wii U edition has a lot of catching up to do, which it’s doing all at once. ALL these packs will be available on launch day:

  • Battle & Beasts Skin Pack
  • Battle & Beasts 2 Skin Pack
  • Natural Texture Pack
  • City Texture Pack
  • Fantasy Texture Pack
  • Festive Mash-up Pack
  • Festive Skin
  • The Simpsons Skin
  • Doctor Who Skins
  • Doctor Who Skins
  • Star Wars Classic Skins
  • Star Wars Rebels Skins
  • Star Wars Prequel Skins
  • Mass Effect Mash-up
  • Skyrim Mash-up
  • Plastic Texture
  • Candy Texture
  • Cartoon Texture
  • Steampunk Texture
  • Pattern Texture
  • Greek Mythology Mash-up
  • Halloween 2015 Mash-up

“With so many included add-on content packs, Minecraft: Wii U Edition brings an exciting collection of Minecraft content and experiences to Nintendo fans,” says Nintendo of America’s president Reggie Fils-Aime. “Wii U players will have plenty of reasons to keep coming back to this iconic gaming experience.”

Minecraft: Wii U Edition will be available digitally December 17, with the disc version coming later.
