Wii U Set To Get A Minecraft Clone Fittingly Titled "U Craft"
There's no denying Minecraft has become one of the biggest video game hits of the last 5 years. Hell, it's so big that Microsoft just dropped $2.5 Billion to purchase the franchise which hopefully won't end with Microsoft ruining Minecraft like they did RARE. While the game has seen release on just about every platform imaginable, the one that makes the most sense has been completely ignored with no Nintendo Wii U release. The Wii U Gamepad was tailor made for a game like Minecraft making its absense stick out like a sore thumb. This has not gone unnoticed by indie developer Nexis Games (BrickBlast U!, The Dance of the Damned) leading to the creation of U Craft, a Minecraft clone looking to take advantage of Nintendo's unique console. The game is aiming for a late 2014 release but could slip into early 2015 considering how large the project is. Little has been shown of the game outside of a teaser trailer but if Nexis Games delivers, Nintendo fans will finally be able to scratch their Minecraft itch. Enjoy!
