As we’ve told you a few days ago, the Minecraft: Wii U version is about to be released soon. Well, it seems that now it’s official, as Mojang, the developer of Minecraft, has announced on its official website that Minecraft: Wii U will be released on December 17, 2015 and it will cost 29.99 dollars.

The Minecraft: Wii U Edition will be available for download from the Nintendo eShop along with many other content packs such as: Battle & Beasts Skin Pack, Natural Texture Pack, Battle & Beasts Skin 2 Pack, Festive Mash-up Pack, City Texture Pack and Fantasy Texture Pack.

The gamers will have the option to purchase additional content such as Skyrim Mash-up Pack, Star Wars Classic Skin Pack, The Simpsons Skin Pack and Doctor Who Skins Volume 1.

We agree that everyone talks now about Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, Fallout 4, Star Wars Battlefront and other AAA games that got released recently, but Minecraft remains one of those games that stay “alive” even after a few years after their release. For example, Minecraft has the 32nd position in the Top 100 bestseller list for all video games and in Top 10 for Xbox One and PS4 Games. In one week, the owners of Wii U consoles will be able to enter the Minecraft world for the first time from this console.

According to Wired, the Wii U’s controller is a moderate sized tablet and it is great for crafting. We’re sure that the Wii U owners will have a great time with this new game on their consoles. So, in case you own a Wii U console, we’re pretty sure what Santa will bring it to you this year, right?

Do you own a Wii U console? Will you purchase Minecraft once it gets released for Wii U or do you prefer to play it on PC, Xbox One or PS4?
