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.”
