Minecraft: Story Mode coming to Wii U, first Minecraft game on Nintendo console
It's hard to believe, but while the Minecraft franchise has been released for a ton of different game consoles and operating systems, the series has never been released on a platform made by Nintendo. That will change with the recently announced Minecraft: Story Mode. A new preview of the upcoming episodic game reveals it will be coming out on the Nintendo Wii U.
Minecraft: Story Mode, which is being developed by Telltale Games in collaboration with Mojang, was first announced in December 2014, just a few weeks after Microsoft officially acquired Mojang and the Minecraft franchise for $2.5 billion. Minecraft: Story Mode will offer fans of the sandbox game series a narrative adventure to play for the first time.
According to The Verge:
In addition to the Wii U, Minecraft: Story Mode will be released for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC, Mac, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, iOS and Android platforms. The first episode is scheduled to be released sometime later in 2015.
