Update (5/10): Now available for pre-order on Amazon, comes with a 20 percent discount for Prime members.

Original (5/7): Minecraft: Wii U Edition launched on the Wii U eShop at the end of last year. However, a physical version is coming soon. Best Buy and GameStop have now opened pre-orders.

Based on GameStop’s listing – as well as one from GameFly – Nintendo will be publishing Minecraft: Wii U Edition at retail. In one way that makes sense, as Sony and Microsoft published the game on their respective platforms. It’ll cost $29.99 – just like the eShop version.

Spencer tweeted out the following:
