— Finally, I have another in-person interview on the show!  I tried to pick the right person for the right game… Maybe.  Possibly.  I have no idea what I’m doing.

minecraft wii u 3DS

How Minecraft On The 3DS Might Turn Out Minecraft is a perfect fit for the Nintendo 3DS. The dual screen and touchscreen functionality fits perfectly with Minecraft’s UI.

 5 Nintendo Collaborative Crossover Titles I would Like to See Collaborative titles are now a thing for Nintendo. Once perceived as a closed company – Nintendo has in recent times been willing to open up their big name franchises to other publishers to create a win-win  situational game.
