Today we are very happy to announce that Minecraft – Pocket Edition will be available world wide for Android 2.2+ phones. This release includes customized touch controls and all the core creative aspects of Minecraft. You will also be able to invite friends to build in your world when connected to the same wi-fi. With Minecraft – Pocket Edition for Android we are taking the next big step in the mobile experience of Minecraft.
Releasing Minecraft – Pocket Edition on the Xperia Play first proved to be a good starting point for us. Lots of lessons learned about mobile gaming and the market place. We have been getting a lot of great feedback from users that now goes in to our development plans. This initial release is focusing on the creative aspects of Minecraft and making sure that the core experience works great on the phones.
Just like the PC/Mac/Linux version of Minecraft we’re planning to continue developing the Pocket Edition for a long time with frequent updates. We’re looking forward to engaging in further discussions with our community as we take the next step for the Pocket Edition.
