This marks yet another partnership with Nintendo for Minecraft, which previously launched on Wii U and most recently on Nintendo Switch.

Considering that the 3DS is now six years old, it's rather incredible that a game as popular as Minecraft is only now coming to the system. It is available via the Nintendo eShop today and will launch physically at a later date. And it will come with five skin packs and two texture packs. You can either play the game using touch controls which is an innovative take on Minecraft world while the traditional button and analog controls can be used for a more laid back experience. "This edition's closest equivalent is 0.15.4 of Minecraft: Pocket Edition, and we'll be continuing to update from there!"
