    Minecraft is the new Doom.

  • Shiggy Diggy Doo

    I also have doom on my 3ds

  • Uncle Ocelot

    Yeah man, it’s a pretty sweet port.

  • Shiggy Diggy Doo

    It’s pretty damn sweet to kill time, I love it

    Minecraft goes well with the low expectation of graphics we have for the 3ds…..

  • BubbaHoTep

    Strange that it didn’t get a 3DS port until now.

  • InfectedAI

    I wonder how it performs? Wasn’t a fan of the performance on the Vita.

    At least people will not be disappointed for the quality of the visuals on the 3ds, since minecraft was supposed to look like shit….
