Minecraft to debut on New 3DS models soon

Minecraft: New Nintendo 3DS Edition Releases Today on eShop; Retail Version Coming at a Later Date

"Swedish game designer Markus "Notch" Persson must never have imagined how his sandbox PC video game "#Minecraft" would explode into a multi platform phenomenon since its first release in 2011.

Characters from game Minecraft, produced by Mojang AB, sit displayed for sale during the EGX gaming conference at Earls Court in London, U.K., on Thursday, Sept. 25, 2014.

The handheld edition of the game will feature both Survival and Creative modes.

Considering that the 3DS is now six years old, it's rather fantastic that a game as popular as Minecraft is only now coming to the system. It is immediately available via the eShop, with a physical release to arrive at a later, unspecified date. It comes with five skin packs, two texture packs, and some bespoke 3DS features such as a inventory and map on the touchscreen that you can arrange with the 3DS' stylus if you don't want to use buttons. New Nintendo 3DS Edition is launching on the eShop today, and you can get it as long as you own a New 3DS, a New 3DS XL, or a 2DS XL.

The New Nintendo 3DS version of Minecraft has standard and touch controls.

"Multiplayer won't be available at launch but we will be adding local multiplayer in a future update".
