Mojang Would Like Minecraft On Wii U And Nintendo 3DS

One thing I get asked a lot is whether Minecraft is coming to the Nintendo 3DS or Wii U. Mojang COO Vu Bui firmly believes that the immensely popular IP should be on as many platforms as possible and that includes the Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS. However, Bui wouldn’t explain why they have decided against releasing it on Nintendo platforms. It could come, but it is more likely that it would appear on Nintendo’s next platform. You never know though.

“If I had my way, we’d be on everything,” COO Vu Bui said. “We want to continue to be available to all players, and that means being on new platforms because everyone uses something different.” Could that include Nintendo machines? “I’ve never heard a reason why we haven’t ended up on Wii U or 3DS. It just hasn’t happened yet.”

    1. If you don’t take the PS3 version, the PSVita version, the PS4 version, the mobile version, which is available on both iOS and Android, into account – yes, it’s Microsoft only.

      1. Hey, I saw you never responded to me on my other post. I just wanted to say that I find you very interesting and would like to talk to you in private if possible.

            1. Hm, what do you mean “I never seen your sorry ass before and yet you told that other guy you don’t wanna ask him in a private chat”? Does the fact that you haven’t seen me before obligate me to have a private chat with that other guy? I don’t quite get it, it’s difficult to understand that particular line of thought of yours, but ok. It’s totally alright if you haven’t seen me on here before though, you can’t take notice of every single individual in the comments section after all.
              Also, did you mean to say “Who the hell do you think you are”? Asking who I think *you* are doesn’t make much sense at that point because you weren’t talking about yourself in your comment, so it’s a bit confusing for you to conclude your reply with that phrase. I guess it would have been more comprehensible if I had brought you up in my comment you replied to and implied that I was thinking you are someone you actually aren’t, but considering that’s not the case as I wasn’t even aware of your existence until just now, it still makes no sense. I do see the connection of the phrase to the video you have attached to your comment of course, but since the video is titled “Who the hell do you think I am” too, that as well didn’t make much sense to be included in your comment, due to the reasons above. I suppose it also shows that you probably didn’t mean to ask who the hell I think I am instead of who the hell I think you are, making the first sentence of this second paragraph pointless, but I won’t go back to delete it, as doing so would just make this very sentence pointless as well. So I’m gonna keep both.
              Anyway, to still answer your question, I really don’t know who the hell I think you are, I’ve never seen you before.
              Also, the video was kinda funny, so thanks for sharing it!

              1. Aww? Thank you Nami Swan! ;)

                I usually go online on My Nintendo News and likes to read comments online about things that humor me.

                Not sure how I’ll end it all? But? Here’s my Skype name “megahentai123”!

                My previous Skype Account I forgot about my Password. lol

                1. Well, that sure is a change in character, lmao.
                  Anyway, just a heads-up – if anyone actually ends up adding you, it’s not going to be me, as I, unfortunately but certainly, do not have any kind of intention to add you, just so you know. But thanks for the offer. :)

      2. They allow those, because they were around way before the deal, but now they own the rights if a mine craft 2 ever happens wouldn’t be or more systems become available wouldn’t be micro only

    2. No, its on PC, also Sony, android, and IOS. I have a feeling they well worry about a Nintendo version after then finish the updated windows10/xbox version, and its story mission DLC. they are also bringing it to hololense so that’s a lot of developing work. Plus those updates might come to pocket addition and Sony devices. A Wii U/3DS would have last priority, but that doesn’t mean it’s not coming. Ita just not a priority

          1. I wrote that futher down here, but that’s also right. Though MS could stop it I guess……? Either way I don’t think MS will let Nintendo have Minecraft.

    1. Kaptain Krusha K. Roolenstein for Smash

      First line “If I had my way, we’d be on everything,”
      He will like it to be but since he knows he is owned by Microsoft then “it’s just hasn’t happened yet”

    1. Didn’t a guy from Microsoft just say like a month ago they’d be willing to work with Nintendo on IPs, as they have done so in the past?

  1. Nintendo Tetrarch Quadramus-NX

    >>>You had the chance before and you didn’t even like the idea, try harder Mojang>>>

  2. I remember he was mocking the wii u before Microsoft bought them. I clearly remember he says. Something along the line that the wii u development kit will help to catch the dust in his room. So I kind of don’t believe what he saying.

  3. Honestly, who cares? Its just a casual game, anyways does anyone know reasons why Activision never released Geometry Wars 3 on WiiU?

  4. Does anyone know about what ever tanculas was doing with a wii u port… I’m taking this and the zombiu thing as a sign

    1. You mean that port from Tantalus? I doubt its Minecraft, its more likely that its either cancelled or some lame Ubisoft title at this point.

    2. Any 3rd party game from 2014-now could be that port but since we still haven’t heard anything from them may be a bad sign. Either it’s cancelled, the port is taking a while to complete, they are working on a game releasing in 2016, or they moved to the NX

  5. pink0crystal0midbus

    Would Microsoft allow that? Maybe they would.

    I mean, it means more money for them and the companies don’t care about the console wars as much as fanboys do. So it is definitely a possibility.

    1. Telltales is releasing Minecraft Story Mode to all the original platforms. I don’t know how this works but Rare was still able to continue releasing game for Nintendo handhelds even after being purchased

    2. They actually do care, because I’m sure if they had the chance it would be exclusively on XBox, but it was already on Sony.

      Exclusivity locks in customers, otherwise they wouldn’t be paying to have titles release on their hardware.

  6. Yahoo… That would make my WiiU collection exceed into double figures. And my mate made me a bet I wouldn’t be able to buy more than 10 games for the machine.

  7. Well I really hope this One to come true.I used to play it on my laptop and it didnt run to well so I would like an improved edition

  8. Microsoft said screw Nintendo… Minecraft will only be on competing consoles that sale systems like PS4.

  9. Peanut Butter KitKat

    So the Wii U is often referred to as a “kid’s console”, yet there’s no Kingdom Hearts, Castle of Illusion, Minecraft or more Call of Duty coming to the system.

  10. I forgot to mention, there’s already a clone in eShop and it’s not as shitty (while also not as pathetic) as Ucraft (or should I say Ucrap) and it’s almost as identical as the real thing. So no, don’t even bother bringing this to Nintendo because everyone knows it’s not gonna happen.

  11. This is just trolling on Nintendo… If he really want to bring Minecraft to a Nintendo console he could have done it a long time ago, but no he just dissed the whole brand.

  12. It’s really strange it hasn’t hit the Wii U at the very least. They put it on Vita, which isn’t as popular as 3DS, but not Wii U? I can understand if it couldn’t be rendered on the original 3DS, but with the New 3DS they definitely don’t have any limitations that could be a reason for not releasing it. It’s a lot of fun, and I think the 3D effects could be fun and the touch screens could make things a lot easier.
