The Playstation 3 version of Minecraft was released around a fortnight ago followed by an announcement that Playstation 4 and Playstation Vita versions are under-development.
It was also revealed that fans should expect an announcement of release date near the new year; so sit tight! Soon after this announcement, a rumor begin to catch fire about a Minecraft Wii U in development.
The Nintendo Enthusiast seemed pretty confident about this rumor. However, in his recent Tweets; Markus Persson has quite bluntly declared all these rumors as false. His first Tweet reads,
“I am not aware of any plans to release a Wii U version of Minecraft.”
He further stated that he does agree about a Wii U version of the game making sense but since he’s currently busy; there are no plans for it. The Tweet ended with, ‘I <3 Nintendo.’ That’s adorable!
“I agree a Wii U version would make sense, btw. The only reason for no current plans is we’ve got too much work already. I <3 Nintendo.”
I believe when Persson is referring to being busy; he’s talking about the Playstation 4 and Playstation Vita versions of the game. Well, only time will tell.
As of October 2013, Minecraft has successfully manage to reach 33 million sales worldwide on all major platforms. Are you looking for a Wii U version? Let us know!
