Minecraft is Coming to The Wii U on December 17th

/ 7 years ago


Minecraft provides a canvass to allow people’s creativity to flourish in a thoroughly addictive manner. Its success has been helped by YouTube tutorial videos and made some of these video makers quite wealthy. On another note, Minecraft can be used in schools as an educational tool. Over the past few years, Minecraft has been released on a number of platforms including PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 3. In a rather unsurprising move, Minecraft is heading its way onto the Wii U and features multiple add-on packs by default. Not only that, the game utilizes off-TV play, so players can keep their creations going on the screen of the Wii U GamePad controller if another family member wants to watch something else on TV. Nintendo and Mojang are working together to bring a wide array of exclusive Wii U content in the future.

Here is a complete rundown of the bundled packs:

Battle & Beasts Skin Pack
Battle & Beasts 2 Skin Pack
Natural Texture Pack
City Texture Pack
Fantasy Texture Pack
Festive Mash-up Pack

The company will offer a huge array of optional DLC packs including:

1. Festive Skin Pack
2. The Simpsons Skin Pack
3. Doctor Who Skins Volume 1
4. Doctor Who Skins Volume 2
5. Star Wars Classic Skin Pack
6. Star Wars Rebels Skin Pack
7. Star Wars Prequel Skin Pack
8. Mass Effect Mash-up Pack
9. Skyrim Mash-up Pack
10. Plastic Texture Pack
11. Candy Texture Pack
12. Cartoon Texture Pack
13. Steampunk Texture Pack
14. Pattern Texture Pack
15. Greek Mythology Mash-up Pack
16. Halloween 2015 Mash-up Pack

This is great news for Wii U owners, but it’s not a major revelation as most people already own the game on at least one platform. Nevertheless, the Wii U gamepad’s touch screen interface might enhance the tactile experience and make it more enjoyable for children.
