Rumor: Minecraft Launching on Wii U in Summer 2014, Focus is on GamePad

By the end of 2014, Minecraft will have spread its worldwide epidemic and infected gamers with addiction symptoms on nearly every platform. Minecraft will be found on PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, Raspberry Pi, Xbox 360, and soon on PS3, PS4, Vita, and Xbox One.

Did you notice a glaring omission from that list? There aren’t any Nintendo systems to be found. 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, Mojang is currently in possession of Wii U dev kits. Although the game is simultaneously in development for Xbox One and PS4, Mojang is said to be focusing on the GamePad for the Wii U version. The projected release for all three systems is summer 2014.

This isn’t the first time the notion of Minecraft on Wii U has been tossed around. Besides for being a logical conclusion reached by practically every person who has ever held a Wii U GamePad, Mojang and Nintendo have both previously commented on the idea.

When Jens Bergensten was asked about the possibilities after Microsoft’s exclusivity deal runs out, , Mojang’s lead designer of Minecraft Pocket Edition claimed:

Jens: “Microsoft has an exclusivity deal for consoles. When it runs out we’ll consider Minecraft for PlayStation, but Wii U is very unlikely.”

At a later date, Nintendo’s business development manager, Dan Adelman and Damon Baker, Nintendo’s Senior Manager of Marketing for Licensing, commented to Gamespot:

Dan: “What can we say on that front? [laughs].”

Damon: “We’re big fans. We have a continuing relationship with Mojang, and respect all the work that they’re doing, but no announcements at this time. Nintendo keeps track of what everybody’s doing. [Nintendo is going to PAX Prime to discuss with developers] whether they’re making games for other platforms or not. We’ve got our own favorites that we’ve had conversations with. So I think it’s always a work in progress.”

As of October 2013, Minecraft had reached 33 million sales across all platforms. That number will only grow with the Xbox One, PS4, Vita, and Wii U version.

Get Even Info

The graphics of Get Even are achieved by using 3D scans of real locations and people. To develop this innovative technology, our studio works with research institutes and independent specialists. This will mark the first time where this technology is used on such a scale in video games. The technology present in Get Even by The Farm 51 has been first presented to the audiences during the Paris Game Connection where it has been well-received.

Get Even also strives to offer a fresh approach to game mechanics. The developers plan to remove the arbitrary barrier between single and multiplayer modes by linking them together in a unique way. In the singleplayer campaign, other players will be able to join the game at any moment to take on the roles of enemies previously controlled by the AI. Thanks to this, the singleplayer campaign, often schematic and predictable in other games, enters a new dimension where the player has to face the most dangorous of all foes: another player who has his own reasons and tools to stop you from reaching your goal.

The approach to story telling in Get Even also strives for innovation. The player is given the chance to experience the events that transpire in the singleplayer campaign from the perspective of two opposing protagonists. What is more, gameplay will differ based upon the choice of a side and the story of the game will be told through elements of gameplay, exploration, and interacting with the environment rather than the standard usage of cutscenes and dialogues.
