Minecraft is probably this generations most popular game. Yep, I said it. In fact, it’s probably sits on that top golden shelf right alongside Angry Birds, and League of Legends, also two very popular games of this generation. Minecraft is currently available on pretty much every current-day platform you can think of, it’s just there, in one form or another. Except on the Wii U, it’s not there yet.

However, Nintendo, after teasing on Twitter on Saturday regarding a BIG announcement that was to be revealed on Monday; has finally announced that Minecraft will be heading to the Wii U. The game is set to arrive on December 17th this year, at a small price point of $29.99.

The Wii U version of the title will support off-TV play, enabling you to play directly from your GamePad. The game will also launch with a handful of DLC content. Considering the creator of Minecraft stated that the game would never arrive on the Wii U, I cannot help but laugh now, seeing the title finally making it’s way to the console. I guess money really is everything?
