Minecraft Wii U Receives A Nice Update

Good news for Minecraft fans as the Wii U version of the game has received another reasonably substantial update. There’s a variety of new features which are bound to keep you interested including a new Battle Map Pack and also a Tumble Mini Game. You can check out all the changes and additional features, below.

  • Added Tumble Mini Game.
  • Added Battle Map Pack 3 (Castle, Invasion & Shipyard).
  • Added six new achievements for the Battle mini game.
  • Re-enabled the previous Birthday and Minecon skin packs for players who had them.
  • Battle Mini Game: Made some changes to chest refilling logic to make things harder for players camping beside chests.
  • Battle Mini Game: Made some balancing changes to items spawning in chests.
  • Battle Mini Game: Fixed some map issues in Cavern, Siege, Ruin, Lair and Atlantis arenas.
  • Introduced a ‘vote to kick’ system for mini games. When there are more than three players in a public game, a player will be kicked from the game when they have received three votes. This scales down when there are less players.

  1. I don’t don’t have this game on Wii U, yet (I have this on my PC though). Does this game support the touchscreen on the GamePad? Or is Microsoft being stupid again?

      1. Oh, I don’t doubt that in the slightest.

        However, I am very curious as to why they haven’t added touchscreen support as of yet. Part of me believes it’s to keep the Wii U from being unique from the rest, but the mere fact that a Microsoft IP is even available in non-Microsoft platforms makes be think otherwise.

        1. not just touch screen but sweet gyro mouse and wii remote the whole industry is a retard

          minecrft was built to play on mouse so touch screen and wii remote are PERFECT FOR THE GAME but we are stuck with a very clanky slow robotic ps4 like twin analog set up like some out dated pile of shit like ps4 or xturd

          i mean a pc mouse game not supporting a nunchcuk and wii remote mouse system is totally retarded as is no touchscreen
