Sony may have gone another E3 without really explaining how it attempts to revive the fortunes of its failing handheld format, but there was a PlayStation Vita killer app at its booth – the company just forgot to tell everyone. Assuming that it handles the release properly, Minecraft: PS Vita Edition has the potential to be a big hit, and it’s shaping up nicely.

If you’ve played the indie blockbuster before, then you’ll largely be familiar with the gameplay on display in the video embedded below. However, that’s the selling point: this is the complete tree punching experience in the palms of your hands. This version’s cross-buy with the PlayStation 3 release, too, so what’s not to love?
