Minecraft: Story Mode heading to Wii U

Posted on August 26, 2015 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U

Minecraft: Story Mode is on its way to Wii U, according to The Verge. While it isn’t the core Minecraft game that has seen a huge amount of success, this will be the series’ first appearance on a Nintendo system.

Developer Telltale Games told The Verge that with its new game, they hope to reach players outside of the Minecraft fandom as well as introduce new people to the franchise.

Here’s a trailer released back in July:

And below is an official overview:

“Minecraft: Story Mode is an adventure game set in a Minecraft world. It is a five-part episodic series that will take you to the Nether, the Farlands, the End, and beyond! You will drive how the story flows through the decisions you make: what you say to people (and how you say it), and what you choose to do in moments of thrilling action.

You are Jesse. He and his group of friends revere the legendary Order of the Stone; four adventurers that slayed an Ender Dragon. The Order are the very best at what they do: Warrior, Redstone Engineer, Griefer, and Architect. While at EnderCon, Jesse and his friends discover that something is wrong… something dreadful. Terror is unleashed, and they must set out on a journey to find The Order of the Stone if they are to save their world from oblivion.”

Minecraft: Story Mode will debut later this year.

    well, at least is a Telltale game Finally on the Wii U right? 🙂

  • Jesse Best

    i wonder if this or Cube Life would sell better.

  • Adrian Brown

    This will sell like hotcakes on WiiU. I wouldn’t be surprised if the attach rate ends up being higher on Nintendo’s platform.

    • Let’s hope so! Maybe it’ll convince Mojang/4J/Microsoft to make a Wii U port ;P

      • The truth-ier

        convince microsoft you mean.

  • Hooray, a Telltale Game finally on Wii U!
    Telltale tells better stories than any other developer in games. Well, except maybe Naughty Dog.

  • ciaos

    Uhm, so this year multiplaform title are not just Just dance, Skylanders, Disney and Lego. We have Legend of Kay, Guitar Hero and now this. It’s good, don’t you think? Of course, there’s not Batman or MGS, but it’s better than nothing.

    • rex pro

      true

    • ChaosNocturne

      mgs sucks and so does batman if batman wasent in batman then it would just be some random game nobody even heard of or touched

      • “mgs sucks” – Someone Who Has Obviously Never Played MGS

  • Yoshi★

    What a surprise

  • Finally a Minecraft game on a Nintendo platform. Although I’m not a huge Minecraft guy, I am happy for the Nintendo fans who love and adore that franchise. I may try this game out myself

  • link2metroid

    A spin-off for us Nintendo fans because we’re not good enough for the main series?

    • Hermione Granger

      pretty much….

  • Hermione Granger

    STOP TEASING AND RELEASE THE PROPER MINECRAFT GAME ASAP!

  • MasterpieceGamer

    YES!!!! We got The Walking Dead: Season 1 and 2 and now this!!!

    Telltale Games realize there many Nintendo fans like them and and need to bringing em onto Nintendo system. 🙂 🙂

    • Operative

      was that walking dead thing ever confirmed?

  • ChaosNocturne

    upvote this if your not giving money to these idiots that just want to resell you the same horrible game that sucks without mods

    • The Green Hylian

      I don’t think you’ve played a Telltale game before

      • He upvoted his own post, that immediately makes his opinion irrelevant.

  • Operative

    So Microsoft had to approve this right? It’s telltale, but the IP belongs to MS. If so, does that mean we can get the regular game? I guess it depends how well this does

  • Annie

    It makes a lot of sense to put Minecraft on Nintendo consoles but this was still unexpected…

    • ShadyKnights

      Well it isn’t the game proper, but yeah. I feel like I’m in some strange bizzaro world. It’s either cause Wii U is getting something presumably at the same time as everyone else, it because I’ve had about 4 hours sleep in the past 30 hours… Likely the Wii U thing >,>

  • MagcargoMan

    The entire concept of a “story mode” for Minecraft was stupid. Especially when it comes off as some sort of fan-fic like thing that changes the MC world to be some sort of multiplayer server but with fan conventions and other meta stuff.

  • Someone

    wait so let me get this straight……they are giving us the “story mode” which is basically a weak spin off of what the “main” game is, instead of giving us the actual main game, which is what people have been wanting for wii U since day one?

    wtf…?

    Minecraft has never been about its “story” its always been about its creative aspects, the unlimited scope of its randomized world, a world which you get to shape into however you see fit.

    But we’re not getting that, instead we’re getting the dull “story mode” of minecraft, that no one asked for, virtually no one cares about, and is something that people look at as a small bonus for the real game. The real game that we’re not getting I might add.

    Seriously this is more of an insult to nintendo fans, i’d rather take one of the minecraft clones which at least still try to emulate a little bit of what made minecraft so popular, as opposed to this spin-off from the actual minecraft developer.
