Doesn't Look Like Minecraft Will Be Coming To Wii U Anytime Soon

Love can't build a bridge?
The Wii U eShop is becoming a haven for indie developers, but it seems that not everyone is keen to join the party. According to Edge Online, Mojang’s Jens Bergensten has said that his company is unlikely to port its indie smash hit Minecraft to the Wii U.
Microsoft has an exclusivity deal for consoles. When it runs out we’ll consider Minecraft for PlayStation, but Wii U is very unlikely.
For those of you that don't know, Minecraft is a sandbox game where you can build literally anything out of blocks. It has become something of a sensation on PC, smartphones and Xbox Live Arcade, and has turned its creator Markus "Notch" Persson into an internet celebrity. It has sold over 20 million copies across all formats so far.
We personally think that the Wii U would be the perfect platform for Minecraft, thanks to the touchscreen display on the GamePad. It's a shame that Mojang isn't at least open to the idea of porting the game, but perhaps that will change with time? Maybe Dan Adelman can send them a bunch of flowers, or something?
