Nintendo announce Minecraft for New 3DS

In today’s Nintendo Direct, the big N made some big Switch and 3DS announcements, including Minecraft for 3DS.

Amazingly, it’s probably the only platform the game has yet to release for, but now New 3DS players will be able to pick it up on the eShop  with a physical release to follow.

With a Survival Mode and all the essentials you’ve come to expect from the classic game, there will surely be further connectivity with the Switch version which is a massive boon for Nintendo systems.

According to GAME, it will release in just a few hours on the eShop. I guess we’ll soon find out. More news to follow.
