The listing, which was spotted by Reddit user Gamestoper, states the Wii U version will also include voice chat functionality. These features are yet to be officially confirmed by Nintendo, Minecraft creator Mojang, or its parent company Microsoft.
On December 9, it was revealed that Minecraft Wii U would not let players use the console's GamePad for inventory management, as many expected it would.
Responding to questions on Twitter, Mojang developer Owen Hill said such a feature "would be cool," but it's not supported, at least not yet."
He continued: "It's just used as an alternate screen if someone is using the TV. Would be cool though."
Since Mojang and Nintendo have promised regular updates for Minecraft on Wii U in the future, so it may be that GamePad inventory management will be introduced in the future. This is just speculation, however.
Minecraft for Wii U launches on December 17 through the eShop and will include six DLC packs, while more than a dozen others will be available to buy.
