    I’m assuming this game is like Animal Crossing where things can occur in the game whether you are playing it or not. *is becoming tempted to buy this game on his n3DS*

  2. “Based on Pocket Edition 0.15.4, which launched July 2016…”

    Ouch, the Vita version, if the same, sucks. The Wii U version is loads better. Oh well, it’s something I guess.

    1. They’ll update it. The next 6 to 8 months won’t do Online and Crossplay, but they will after the first 6 to 8 months. Everything is made from the ground up for this version.

    1. It’s made from the ground up for this version, so it will take time to add everything. Best to check it out in 2019 after a million updates have happened.

    1. The other versions are ports. Only the PC & New 3DS versions are made from the ground up. Same goes for Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed.
