Minecraft: Wii U Edition was a natural fit for the eShop, finally providing Nintendo gamers with the opportunity to give it a shot. 4J Studios has certainly shown that it's willing to support the game post-release, and while the Nintendo exclusive DLC plans are still under wraps, there was an update last week that added a fairly substantial amount of content. All the same, there are still some gamers that prefer not to buy games digitally for one reason or another, but a recent announcement will no doubt be pleasing to that demographic.

The official Minecraft Twitter account just revealed that Minecraft: Wii U Edition will be arriving in physical form at some point in the future. No window or release date was given, just a vague "soon", but hopefully it won't be too long of a wait until you start seeing this on store shelves. Here's the tweet:
