The listing, which was spotted by NeoGAF user HypnoDarkrai, states Minecraft Wii U Edition will be released this year. Neither Nintendo, Mojang, nor its parent company, Microsoft, have officially announced the release.
Nintendo is scheduled to have a Direct event today (November 12) to offer updates on upcoming Wii U and Nintendo 3DS releases. The stream will take place at 2pm Pacific (10pm UK). It may be that the announcement is made during this.
Microsoft spent $2.5 billion to buy Mojang and the Minecraft property in September 2014. According to Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, its in-development augmented reality headset, HoloLens, was a major part of the decision to acquire the studio and its game.
“Let's have a game that, in fact, will fundamentally help us change new categories," Nadella said. “HoloLens was very much in the works [when Microsoft announced the deal last year], and we knew it."
Microsoft has also confirmed that it will introduce Oculus Rift support for Minecraft in 2016.
