It’s fair to say that there has been a lot of Minecraft drama building up over the last 24 hours. If you have been keeping an eye on developments, you’ll know that a Minecraft Wii U Edition release date was shockingly scheduled for this week but unfortunately fans have yet again been dealt another dagger to the heart.
To recap, ratings website PEGI apparently leaked information in advance that Minecraft Wii U Edition was cleared for launch on November 12.
A screenshot was picked up over at Neogaf which ignited a barrage of excitement from fans on social media who were convinced that this could be the surprise announcement at Nintendo’s Direct 11.12.15 broadcast.
However, as we now know the broadcast has ended and there was no confirmation of a Minecraft Wii U Edition release date – since the big surprise turned out to be Cloud as a playable character in Super Smash Bros.
What happened then? Was the PEGI details simply faked, or is Nintendo not ready to reveal this information publicly yet?
Remember that Mojang is now owned by Microsoft and many thought that this would mean the end of Wii U Minecraft hopes – however the PEGI rating reveal suggests otherwise.
We know that Nintendo has another Nintendo Direct for December 2015 lined up, so will we finally get the confirmation then?
Let us know if you, like many others believed that Minecraft would be announced at the Direct event hours ago. Are you feeling sad right now to have those hopes dashed yet again?
