Minecraft Wii U Also Coming To Retail At Later Date

We found out earlier today that Nintendo’s big announcement was that the incredibly popular Minecraft is finally coming to Wii U. The creative title will be available on the Wii U eShop on December 17th, but we have found out that it will also be available at retail at a later date. So if you’re not happy with owning it digitally it will be coming to retail sometime soon.

  1. Damn it, I thought physical would be available that date.

    Well depending how much my sibling will play it, maybe digital will be the better option.

  2. Wtf did you idiots expect? Stop getting excited for big news announcements because no matter what company it is Nintendo, sony or ms they’re all going act like the smallest scrap they give out is big news… its life just carry on

  3. im gonna buy it, retail but its gonna have to wait til early 2016. my last game of the year is xenoblade chronicles x which is on its way in the mail, might arrive this week (wednesday, maybe).

  4. somehow not surprise the big thing is Minecraft on Wii U. I knew from the start it would not be that much (I don’t find the announcement to be a big thing). To be honest I was expecting something smaller like more games coming to virtual console or an indie from the underground or a mobile game like candy crush come to eshop.

  5. I probably shouldn’t be saying this… but I have inside information on who the last 5 characters are, after Cloud’s inclusion.

    “Due to fan demand and the upcoming release of Star Fox Zero on Wii U, Wolf will return as a veteran.”

    “One of Sakurai’s personal favorites from Super Smash Bros. Melee will make a return as well. Young Link is back, and he’s based on his incarnation from Majora’s Mask 3D. His Final Smash is the Fierce Deity, but will retain most of his previous moveset from Melee.”

    “The winner of the Smash Ballot is confirmed to be King K. Rool. Polls from both the West and Japan show that King K. Rool was in fact the leader for several months, way ahead of any other character voted for.”

    “The new Nintendo IP, Splatoon, was so commercially successful worldwide, that Sakurai saw it fitting to include the Inklings while they’re still fresh and trending, as he doesn’t plan on developing a 5th installment for Smash Bros. any time soon, and really wanted to have the character within the game.”

    “The final character to be announced is in fact another 3rd-party fighter. Master Chief from the Halo series makes his landfall onto the Smash battlefield! Nintendo and the team behind Smash Bros. came to an agreement with Microsoft to include their juggernaut mascot within the game. Sakurai’s ultimate wish for the current Smash installment was to include not only Nintendo’s all-stars, but also icons within the gaming industry. Cloud was deliberately revealed before the Smash Broadcast, because Sakurai knew Master Chief would have a bigger impact when finally announced.”

    That’s the scoop. I’m guessing Snake isn’t in because of not only what Kojima said ages ago, but also because of how Konami’s been acting for the past couple of years. Master Chief wouldn’t surprise me to be honest, we’re getting Minecraft for Wii U finally, and I recall Phil Spencer of Xbox said he’d be down for Banjo & Kazooie to appear in Smash, but I guess Master Chief is more iconic over Banjo, so there you go.

  6. And that’s practically all they announced too. I lmao to any fool being hyped over this. Should’ve learned your lesson from many past shitty Nintendo’s E3 like 2015 especially.
