Nintendo Has A "Continuing Relationship" With Minecraft Studio Mojang

But there's no news of a Wii U or 3DS version
Minecraft is massive — but you surely don't need us to tell you that. The indie game started life as a PC title but has since made the jump to Xbox 360 and smartphones, picking up millions of new players as a result.
The question of Minecraft coming to Nintendo platforms has been asked before, but that didn't stop GameSpot asking again at PAX Prime. The site spoke to business development manager Dan Adelman and senior manager of marketing for licensing Damon Baker, who said:
Dan Adelman: "What can we say on that front? [laughs]."
Damon Baker: "We're big fans. We have a continuing relationship with Mojang, and respect all the work that they're doing, but no announcements at this time."
"Continuing relationship" could mean anything — Nintendo could be exchanging a few friendly emails with Mojang from time to time — but we'd like to assume that something more substantial could be announced in the not-too-distant future. Minecraft would work really well on both of Nintendo's current platforms thanks to touchscreen tech, and we're sure there are plenty of players willing to take the plunge. Are you one of them?
