Though with Minecraft on nearly every device, we wonder how relevant it would be for 3DS owners at this juncture, particularly since its restricted to the newest 3DSes alone.

Video game stories from other sites on the web. Telltale's episodic series Minecraft Story Mode also came to Switch last month.

"Minecraft is a game about placing blocks and going on adventures", the firm notes.

Nintendo revealed the Minecraft release during today's Nintendo Direct live stream.

Playable only on the New Nintendo 3DS units, this version of Minecraft can be played with touchscreen or button controls and is actually out right now via the Nintendo eShop.

Creative Mode is, of course, the sandbox building mode of the game, which has resulted in some magnificent digital constructions that have gone viral at least in the gaming community.

All the DLCs including skin packs and texture packs released on the Nintendo Wii U console, Switch will be available on the new 3DS version on launch. It is available via the Nintendo eShop today and will launch physically at a later date. "This edition's closest equivalent is 0.15.4 of Minecraft: Pocket Edition, and we'll be continuing to update from there!"
