Minecraft Headed to iOS Devices This Year

Indie megastar Minecraft will be released for iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad later this year, Gamasutra reports. Rip-offs and clones of Mojang's dig 'em up have been made for Apple's magical consumer electronics devices before, but nothing official.


Mojang founder Markus 'Notch' Persson explained to Gamasutra that the iOS version won't necessarily receive all the same updates as the original version, which is still in beta, but rather only features which "make sense" for the touch-screen devices. The port is being handled by a new member of Mojang, Aron Neiminen.

There's no word yet on a price nor a release date more specific than "later this year."
