Minecraft on Wii U 'makes sense' but isn't happening now

Mojang is too busy

Despite having no interest in playing ports of Minecraft on new platforms, plenty of others are eager to do exactly that, and I do think getting this piece of pop culture on Wii U would benefit Nintendo. Every game matters. And considering the GamePad's functionality, it'd also likely be a worthwhile version of Minecraft in its own right. But such a port isn't happening -- not yet, anyway.

A recent tweet by creator Markus "Notch" Persson covered the topic: "I agree a Wii U version would make sense, btw. The only reason for no current plans is we've got too much work already. I <3 Nintendo."

I don't doubt that the studio is busy. I also don't see Minecraft losing significance anytime soon. As such, I think this will be something for Mojang and 4J Studios to look at again down the road.
