Let us know in the comments if you plan to get Minecraft on the New Nintendo 3DS.
Microsoft has released Minecraft on a popular Nintendo mobile gaming device.
A 3DS edition of Minecraft was just announced, and then revealed to be launching later today on the eShop. The release comes in two stages: a digital version available now at the eShop and a physical game card that will be sold at retail stores at an unspecified later date. If you simply like to explore the beauty of the world and make creative constructions, choose Creative mode. The New 3DS Edition includes the various modes from the other versions as well as a few skin packs. Inventory, crafting and the map shows up on the lower touchscreen, and players are able to use buttons or the touch pad itself to navigate their cube-infested worlds.
