Golden pickaxe

Sony didn’t announce the big Minecraft: PlayStation Vita Edition hardware bundle that we were expecting this week, but the game’s definitely looking rock solid on the handheld machine. The platform holder has deployed this fairly lengthy trailer showing off the portable release, which demonstrates that it’s an identical conversion of the PlayStation 3 version.

There’s still no word on a release date for the game, but the official line is still “before the end of August”. 4J Studios, the team behind the port, recently announced that it had submitted the PlayStation 4 edition for certification, but is still busy squashing bugs in the pocketable package. It should be done any day now, we reckon.
