Minecraft clone Cube Life: Island Survival is coming to the North American and European Wii U eShops at the start of June, publisher Cypronia has told us.

The title offers crafting with over 200 items and tools, wild animals to fend off, local inhabitants (which you'll be able to trade with or slaughter, depending on your mood), a day/night cycle and internet rankings.

The game's standard retail price will be $14.99 / €14.99, but a special launch discount will be applied that brings the cost down to a more reasonable $6.99 / €6.99.

It may be a clear clone of Mojang's best-selling, but Cypronia CEO Stefan Pavelka is confident that Cube Life has a lot to offer:

If we compare the game to competitors, other Wii U games of that genre, we will offer much more fun and greater value, either by means of lower price or by providing more content and features.
