Minecraft: Vita Edition Vita

Prior to the Microsoft acquisition, there were a few concerns that it would never happen, but MineCraft: PS Vita Edition finally has a date – in Europe at least. 4J Studios – the team behind the portable port – revealed on Twitter overnight that the handheld house making simulator will deploy on 15th October in Europe. Sadly, there’s no word on a North American date just yet.

Of course, whether this marks the last ever Mojang title on a PlayStation platform remains to be seen, as we can’t see the Xbox maker being quite so liberal with hypothetical sequels. Either way, it’s nice to see this release finally locked down. Will you be punching some trees on the train next week? Let us know if you’ll be downloading this cross-buy crafting escapade in the comments section below.
