'Minecraft: Story Mode' comes to the Wii U on January 21st

Those of you with a Wii U have been missing out on Minecraft: Story Mode, created by Mojang and Telltale Games, the indie developer behind The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones titles. But that's changing soon. Today, Telltale announced that Minecraft's narrative-based series is coming to Nintendo's console in just a few days, on January 21st.

Up until now, the game had been available on the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC, as well as iOS and Android, having rolled out a total of five different episodes for all platforms. The Wii U version will only feature Episode 1: The Order of the Stone at launch, but the rest are expected to be available at a later date.

Each episode is going to cost $5 to download from the eShop, or there's also the option to pay $20 for the Season Pass, which gives you access to Episode 2 through 5.
