Great news for Wii U owners; it looks as though there will be a physical release for the popular Minecraft game for Nintendo Wii U. Up until now players had to download the title but it appears as though you will be able to head to retail and purchase a physical copy of the game. Although no specific release date has been given, it may be appearing sooner rather than later.

Good stuff Nintendo.

In just 4 days, Miitomo, Nintendo’s first official mobile social media game, has been downloaded over 1.6 million times in the US alone. Miitomo was released on March 30th and is available for iOS and Android. 51% of Miitomo’s install base comes from the US, more than any other territory. Other top regions were Great Britain, France, Germany, and Canada.

Crazy stuff and we can’t wait to see what happens next for Miitomo. I am certainly enjoying it thus far.

STARFOX ZERO NORTH AMERICAN COMMERCIAL

Here is the official TV commercial for Star Fox Zero. The Wii U exclusive hits the system this month and has been coming along rather nicely since its reveal. I hope this one turns out to be pretty sweet and keep in mind that Star Fox Zero comes packaged with Star Fox Guard as well. I am very eager to read the first review on the game and I hope to get my hands on a copy when it’s released.

Star Fox Zero is set to hit on April 22nd. Check out the commercial above and let us know if this catches your fancy.

This just in, Japan (those lucky gamers) will be getting Amiibo diorama kits to showcase their collectable figures. I think this is an incredible idea and hope the big N decides to release these in the West. These nifty Amiibo diorama Kits will feature scenes from Super Smash Bros and Kirby’ sky of Dreamland. Only time will tell if they are released outside Japan but I could see this type of thing being a GOLD MINE for Nintendo.

Would you pick one up?

Miitomo, Nintendo first foray into the iOS market, has hit the charts coming in at #1. The nifty little social media application hit the coveted number in under 24 hours and has been entertaining to yours truly. Keep in ming that this is just on Apple platforms so we have yet to see how well it will do on Android devices. I have downloaded it and am liking it thus far.

Congrats Nintendo.
