Hopes Raised for Wii U Minecraft
If there's on thing that the Wii U needs, it's for a hugely successful third-party game to transfer from other consoles and the PC. Minecraft - the beloved of all Geeks and Nerds - could be that game.

Sadly for Nintendo, Minecraft - the block building 'game' that enables users to create environments that can then be freely shared - has already been nixed by Jens Bergensten a games designer over at developer Mojang prior to Microsoft losing its exclusivity on console: "Microsoft has an exclusivity deal for consoles. When it runs out we’ll consider Minecraft for PlayStation, but Wii U is very unlikely.” That unlikelihood is according to sources now in doubt...

NintendoEnthusiast reports that, "However, we have now got word from a retailer source that this serious misdeed will soon be rectified. Minecraft will be coming to Wii U. Nintendo has made an effort to pursue such a release and their efforts have paid off. According to our source, the developer is currently in possession of Wii U dev kits.

"Although the game is simultaneously in development for Xbox One and PS4, the developer is said to be focusing on the GamePad for the Wii U version. The projected release for all three systems is summer 2014."
