Mario and his pals will soon venture into the blocky world of Mojang's Minecraft as part of a free update for Minecraft: Wii U Edition launching later this month, Nintendo and Mojang confirmed this week.
Minecraft is on almost every platform conceivable apart from the Wii U, but earlier today Nintendo announced the mega-popular sandbox game would be available before Christmas. Nintendo plans to add custom content for fans.
The first episode in Telltale Games' narrative-focused Minecraft spinoff Minecraft: Story Mode will hit digital storefronts in October. A retail package that includes a Season Pass is also in the works.
Minecraft: Story Mode, an open-ended adventure game developed by Telltale Games and based on the almost entirely story-free sandbox game, might have just had its release date leaked thanks to an Amazon listing.
Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition is releasing as a beta, with feedback tools and features designed to let the game evolve as the community sees fit. Features from the Pocket Edition will also be included.
Starring comedian and card-carrying geek Patton Oswalt, Minecraft: Story Mode is a five-part episodic adventure set in the open-ended, voxelated world of Mojang's monumental game, Minecraft. Here is the debut trailer.
