It has been confirmed that hit sandbox game Minecraft will be available on the Nintendo Wii U from later this month with the same features as its other console versions. The platform is one of few which developer Mojang has left out so far.

Nintendo has been actively changing many of their operating policies and techniques over the years. In a surprising move, the company has enabled developers to implement cross-platform multiplayer capabilities across multiple gaming consoles.
