Nearly a month ago, one eagle eyed NeoGAF user spotted a listing on PEGI that suggested there was a Wii U version of the epic dig-em-up Minecraft heading to the beleaguered console, which would almost make 'Craft's appearance on nearly every single gaming console, phone, tablet, TV, dongle, toaster and toothbrush complete.

Well luckily, for all of you with Wii Us, Minecraft is finally heading to Nintendo's flagship, and will be dragging a shed ton of goodies along for the ride.

And it's truly about time right? I mean Minecraft deserves to be given some time on the game pad's second screen. Don't you think? Well Mojang agrees and have included the ability to play solely on the game pad, just in case some soulless person wanted to actually watch TV.

But with that in mind, when the game hits Nintendo's eStore it'll retail for $30. Which is a bit steep considering all the cross format purchases some fans of the block-building behemoth have bought over the years.

But if you are interested on getting your block on on Wii U this Christmas, here's a list of all the included and purchasable goodies and packs that will be available at launch:


  • Battle & Beasts Skin Pack
  • Battle & Beasts 2 Skin Pack
  • Natural Texture Pack
  • City Texture Pack
  • Fantasy Texture Pack
  • Festive Mash-up Pack


  • Festive Skin Pack
  • The Simpsons Skin Pack
  • Doctor Who Skins Volume 1
  • Doctor Who Skins Volume 2
  • Star Wars Classic Skin Pack
  • Star Wars Rebels Skin Pack
  • Star Wars Prequel Skin Pack
  • Mass Effect Mash-up Pack
  • Skyrim Mash-up Pack
  • Plastic Texture Pack
  • Candy Texture Pack1
  • Cartoon Texture Pack
  • Steampunk Texture Pack
  • Pattern Texture Pack
  • Greek Mythology Mash-up Pack
  • Halloween 2015 Mash-up Pack

Yeah, you read right. Skyrim Mash-up Pack. Now you can have Minecraft and Skyrim on your Wii U in one fell sweep! Thank you, Mojang. Thank you so much!

Minecraft: Wii U Edition releases on December 17.
