Nintendo today announced a surprise launch of Minecraft for the 3DS handheld. The game is available starting today on the Nintendo 3DS eShop, as soon as the company’s Nintendo Direct stream ends at around 7PM ET. Developer Mojang’s seminal pixel-art sandbox game has made its way to pretty much every other gaming platform out there, from Windows Phones to Oculus Rift headsets to even single-board Raspberry Pi computers. So a 3DS port of the game is well overdue at this point.

We don’t know how much Nintendo and Microsoft, which owns the Minecraft property, plan on charging for the 3DS version of the game. When the software goes live in the eShop, we’ll be sure to check the cost and update this post accordingly. A packaged cartridge version of the game will be available at retail at a later date, Nintendo says.
