New content promised for Nintendo fans.
The construction sensation Minecraft is finally coming to the Wii U.
Minecraft will release on the Wii U eShop next Thursday (December 17) in both North America and Europe. The North American version will launch at $29.99 with six add-on packs included, with 16 more available for add-on purchase on the first day including Star Wars and Greek mythology theme packs. Nintendo themed content is in development and will release at a later time. Off-TV play and split-screen multiplayer will be supported for the title as well.
UPDATE: Microsoft's Minecraft Monday livestream has confirmed 4 player local multiplayer and 8 player online.
The news was first mentioned by Nintendo's Damon Baker as a part of this past weekend's annual NWR Live Podcast Telethon for Child's Play.
