Recent comments from one of Mojang’s lead designers– Jens Bergensten– suggest that time may soon be up on the game’s exclusivity (among consoles, at least) for Xbox 360. Though Bergensten at first called a Wii U port “very unlikely,” he quickly amended his words in the interview with Gamnesia: “The Wii U is no more likely than any other platforms, but no less either.”
It’s hard not to see what Wii U’s GamePad and horsepower could bring to the game. The former is perfect for inventories of all sorts, though would also be a comfortable way of manipulating 3D models and worlds on-screen. And since the 1:1 pickaxe swinging didn’t make it into ZombiU, maybe Mojang could revive the feature!
The expiration date for Microsoft’s exclusive console rights isn’t yet known, but any word on that topic is sure to make a splash.
