With Minecraft quickly spreading across several consoles including PS4, Xbox One, and PS Vita, Nintendo Enthusiast claimed a few days ago that Minecraft was in development for the Wii U. However, this claim turned out to be false, with Notch, the game's creator, stating via twitter that there aren't currently any plans for Minecraft on Wii U.
"I am not aware of any plans to release a Wii U version of Minecraft," said Notch. The game's creator also states that he does like the idea of Minecraft being on Nintendo's console, however, the teams are just too busy at the moment to work on a Wii U version of Minecraft.
Although Minecraft is not currently in development for the Wii U, Notch's words hint at the possibility that the project could become a reality sometime in the future.
