In one of those 'sure, why not' announcements, Nintendo of America has confirmed that the physical retail edition of Minecraft: New Nintendo 3DS Edition will arrive on 10th November.

Interestingly, the box art also has an amiibo logo, which suggests the range will be supported in the game via an update - or it's a design error, we'll find out soon enough.

As you may recall this was a surprise release following the September Nintendo Direct, though we feel the compromises to get it onto the New 3DS hardware somewhat hinder the experience. Some will also wonder, of course, when we can expect to see the retail release of the rather impressive Switch edition.

Are any of you tempted to pick this up?
