Minecraft heading to iPhone & iPad

Some Train2Game forum users can’t seem to get enough of Minecraft, but they’ll be ale to get an even bigger fix by playing it on the iPhone and iPad later this year.

The port is being developed by Aron Neiminen, a new recruit to the Mojang team, and will be available some time later this year. Markus ‘Notch’ Persson – who Train2Game students have the chance to question– said the iOS Minecraft won’t get all of the updates the original version receives but will be given those that “make sense” for the touchscreen devices.

Minecraft has proven to be extremely popular, passing 1 million sales despite still being in beta. The game is something Train2Game students can look to when it comes to what a small development can achieve.

Train2Game blog readers can find out more about the history of Minecraft on the Thoughts of Train2Game blog.

So Train2Game, what are your thoughts on Minecraft coming to iOS systems? Is it something you welcome? Will it work? Will you lose your entire life to Minecraft?

As usual, you can leave your thoughts here on the Train2Game blog or on the Train2Game forum. You can also Tweet us on the Train2Game Twitter account.
