Excellent news are officially coming from Mojang – Minecraft Mobile Edition finally hits mobile phones.
Following a cycle of excellent success recorded by Minecraft ever since the beginning till the most recent edition, under regularly up-to-date processes and still in Beta, the worldwide fans will be able to enjoy this sandbox video game over their mobile phones!
Minecraft is really a genuine indie sensation, as the small video game which isn’t even complete, took the PC gaming scene by storm last year and it has since created cult like following, managing to make its designer, Mojang, over $30 million.
At the beginning of the year, the studio confirmed that a Minecraft mobile for phone devices are going to be created in-house, for systems like the iOS, which means iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, but in addition for Android, meaning lots of other devices are getting it.
The initial actual phone which will be having Minecraft Mobile is a Sony Ericsson Xperia Play,at least based on a new teaser announcement, via Kotaku, sent forth by the mobile phone company. Within it, the familiar blocky world of Minecraft is present, alongside the iconic pickaxe and some mentions to the creepers, the foes from the game.
Taking into consideration the Xperia Play uses the Android 2.3 operating-system, it’s possible to see Minecraft show up on other Android phones, such as Google Nexus S, once the assumed timed exclusivity deal with Sony expires.
Owners of iOS devices may also look ahead to see the indie game show up on their various iPhones, iPads or iPods ’till the end of the year.
Probably, the release of the Minecraft mobile version will coincide with the official release day of the final version, already set this current year on 11/11/11.
You will find just three things remaining to do: practice your own Minecraft skills by downloading the newest version, find out how to craft in Minecraft a number of recipes for food, tools, mechanism or transportation and finally, go check out exactly how much you’ll invest in the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play (PlayStation Phone) – simply because we’ve got some significant motives at this point, beside those people already known!
