If you own a copy of Minecraft: Wii U Edition and it’s gathering dust on your shelf then the following news may prompt you to fire it back up. Mojang have today announced that there’s going to be an update for Minecraft tomorrow that introduces a new mini game called ‘Glide’.
Coming from their website:
We’ve got a pretty swish update soaring onto consoles tomorrow, bringing with it a free, all new Mini Game. It’s called Glide and it’s designed to test your aeronautical skills to the very limit. Strap on a pair of elytra and hone your swooping skills on an exhilarating aerial track – the first in a series of free tracks to be released.
Beat the clock in the Time Attack mode, using thermal drafts and speed boosters to your advantage, or go for points in Score Attack by hitting all the hoops. Careful study may reveal sneaky shortcuts to refine your runs, so keep your eyes peeled! You can choose to beat your personal best in solo play, pit your wing-skills against other players online, or – on Xbox One and PS4 – take a swing at the all new Glide leaderboards. This update also boosts the number of PS4 and Xbox One players possible in both Glide and Battle up to 16, and all platforms get a more spacious lobby, too!
Unfortunately though it would seem that online leaderboards for Minecraft: Wii U Edition won’t be present but the update looks pretty cool all the same.
