Minecraft Heading To Android

Earlier this week we brought you the news that the time-sink that is Minecraft would be getting a port onto iOS. Well, Android fans can stop feeling aggrieved now as the game will be making its way to this platform too!


Details are thin on the ground, other than it will be making an appearance later this year.

  1. Minecraft is taking over the world here.

  2. I can remember Notch saying that Minecraft sin’t coming to smartphones. And if it is, it’s not made by him.

    But maybe the times have changed?

    • Notch isn’t making it but one of his team is. It’s more than a one man project now you see!

      • Yah, found the original post and it seems to be true

        hopefully my Samsung Galaxy S can run it

  3. I don’t think I’ve been happier. I requested stable Minecraft from Notch and he is delivering! It’s like praying, but to something that is real and responds!

    • I actually meant portable Minecraft. Thanks, iPad.

  4. Soon after this is released there will be a large rise in the amount of people using public transport who miss their desired stop.

    I will undoubtedly be one of them.

    • then i shall be able to get home quicker.:P

      I have never played Minecraft and i don’t even know what the main point of it is?

      • There honestly isn’t a point. You… mine and build, and mine, and build, then blow up, then mine and build some more. It may sound boring, but when you get into it, you just go.

        It’s too awesome, definitely getting an Android for a phone when I can now.

  5. Minecraft on my phone. Awesome.

  6. YES YES YES YES YES YES! Pleased Greatly by this :D

  7. Haven’t tried Minecraft. Doubt I will. From all that I’ve read, it takes as much of your time as an MMO. I like having a life thank you.
