Minecraft is coming to the Wii U on December 17; Nintendo-exclusive add-ons in the works


The whimsical world of Minecraft and Nintendo’s colorful sensibilities seem like a match made in heaven. So the frustration that many Nintendo fans feel at the game’s absence from the Wii U is understandable. But that all changes on December 17 when Minecraft: Wii U Edition will be added to the Wii U eShop.

Priced at $29.99, Minecraft: Wii U Edition will include Off-TV Play and six of the most popular add-on packs (Battle & Beasts 2 Skin Pack, Natural Texture Pack, City Texture Pack, Fantasy Texture Pack, and Festive Mash-up Pack). A huge number of additional add-on packs will be available for Wii U owners on December 17 too:

  • Festive Skin Pack
  • The Simpsons Skin Pack
  • Doctor Who Skins Volume 1
  • Doctor Who Skins Volume 2
  • Star Wars Classic Skin Pack
  • Star Wars Rebels Skin Pack
  • Star Wars Prequel Skin Pack
  • Mass Effect Mash-Up Pack
  • Skyrim Mash-Up Pack
  • Plastic Texture Pack
  • Candy Texture Pack
  • Cartoon Texture Pack
  • Steampunk Texture Pack
  • Pattern Texture Pack
  • Greek Mythology Mash-Up Pack
  • Halloween 2015 Mash-Up Pack

Finally, Nintendo and Mojang also announced that they will collaborate on at least one Minecraft add-on pack in the near future. Minecraft: Mario? Minecraft: Zelda? Minecraft: Metroid? Neither company is talking just yet, but I can’t wait to find out what they have planned.
