The race to create a compelling Minecraft clone for a Nintendo console is on and now Big John Games has revealed that it will be jumping on the blocky bandwagon with Cube Creator 3D for the 3DS eShop.

The game is due to hit the eShop early next year, however Big John Games do hope to have a demo ready for December so you can get a feel for what the finished product will be like. The demo will offer a Creative Mode which allows players to explore the stereoscopic 3D world and also makes use of the 3DS' touchscreen so players can access the game's inventory easily during play.

The full game will feature a Survival Mode which offers a bunch of crafted worlds, along with some random ones to mess about in. There will also be enemies to keep you on your blocky toes.

With Battleminer also coming to the 3DS soon, along with UCraft and Stone Shire also planned for the Wii U, Nintendo fans will soon be spoilt for choice when it comes to Minecraft clones. How do you think this one measures up judging from the screenshots in our gallery below?
