With anticipation growing with every passing day for Minecraft on the Vita, we finally have something more to shout about. After celebrating the second anniversary of the Xbox 360 release, when promoted about the Vita version 4J studios confirmed that they are working hard on it and tweeted the first Vita image.

Showing a very familiar crafting menu, Jens Bergstein confirmed that the Vita version is based on the PS3 version, but we already knew that from Owen Hill’s comments recently.

Minecraft is currently set to release by “Q3”, but I certainly hope it gets here sooner.

What about you, Vita fans? Excited for Minecraft?

    I just showed the picture to my daughter and her jaw dropped to the floor. She has only played Minecraft Pocket Edition and said, “It’s Minecraft, but I’ve never seen that stuff! I WANT IT!!” So it’s safe to say she’s pretty excited (and I’m pretty excited too)

    • My wife cannotnunderstand why I don’t let my children play with my obsolete 1000, but when this comes I think I’ll have to let them have it…

        I was the same way. I bought a used Vita 1000 just so she could play Tearaway. Once Minecraft comes out, I’m going to lose her for awhile (but I’ll finally get my tablet back).

    Two Questions rize to me, No native resolution?, ad hoc maybe?, at least put it ad hoc, do not make The same idiotic mistake that 505_Games did with Terraria for the PSVita Version Oh also, allowing music app t oplay music while playing!

  • Good stuff. I cannot wait for it to be released so I can dive into it.
