Earlier today, the Glide Mini Game was announced for Minecraft on consoles. It should be coming to various systems tomorrow, including Wii U. Tons of footage can be found after the break from a live stream on Twitch.

Starting tomorrow, Minecraft: Wii U Edition players can participate in the new Glide Mini Game. It’ll put your aeronautical skills to the test, as you’ll be flying around in an aerial track. Additional free tracks will be offered at a later date.

The Glide Mini Game features two modes: Time Attack and Score Attack. The former has you using thermal drafts and speed boosters to obtain the fastest possible time while the latter encourages wracking up points by hitting all the hoops. Single-player and multiplayer options are both included. A more spacious lobby will be included as part of the update.
