The Only Place You Won't Find Minecraft Is On Nintendo SystemsS

Beginning life on the PC, Minecraft has since appeared on *deep breath* iOS, Android, Xbox 360, Mac, Linux, the Raspberry Pi (!) and, soon, the PS3, PS4, Vita and Xbox One. That's just about every major platform and manufacturer out there. Oh, except one.

Nintendo.

Despite the smashing success the game has enjoyed on every system it's appeared on, you can't get Minecraft on the 3DS or the Wii U, and it never turned up on the Wii or DS.

Why is that?

We asked Mojang back in March and didn't hear back. This week, Gamespot asked Nintendo themselves, and were told "We're big fans. We have a continuing relationship with Mojang, and respect all the work that they're doing, but no announcements at this time."

If you remember back to March, developers Mojang said that a Wii U version of the game was "very unlikely".
