    Been waiting a long time for this

    My granddaughter has been waiting a long time for this game to come out on DS. She really wanted the digital download. So I originally bought this copy for myself since she wanted me to learn how to play it. Needless to say, I no longer have the game because she decided that it would probably be better to have the cartridge instead of the digital copy. I agreed. She loves this game and now she doesn't have to wait until she sees her dad to play it on his XBox.

    Minecraft has become a pop culture. It finally landed on 3DS despite lacking features. The gameplay holds up on Nintendo 3DS - mine, craft, build. The bottom screen of the 3DS makes inventory more accessible. And the recent update supports local 2 player co-op. Hopefully online soon. My household owns so many Minecraft games. This is a great addition. Great buy!

    My 7 year old son has been into Minecraft for quite some time and I wasn't sure how he'd react to the 3ds version since I assumed it was missing some features from the PC version. Thankfully it wasn't and after a few startup hurdles (He wasn't used to starting from scratch and the control scheme) he's loved it.

    Bought as a gift for my son. **Note: You need either the New Nintendo 3DS XL or New Nintendo 2DS XL for this game to work. Will not work on any other DS system. My son loves Minecraft and likes that he can now play it on his New 2DS system, rather than is outdated Ipad pocket edition that keeps crashing.

    My son was so excited about this game but it's only compatible with the "NEW" 3DS. My fault I didn't look closer at the package, but still a total waste of money. Now the best I can hope for is trade in value on a new used game.

    If you have a New 3DS and you like Minecraft do it

    Ok all I'm going to say is that if you like Minecraft and you have a 3DS then this is a no-brainer (word of warning though as the packaging says it only works on the New Nintendo 3DS, New 3DS XL, And New2DS XL it won't work on the regular 2DS or the original 3DS or 3DS XL). So just go get it.

    This game is only for the New Nintendo 3DS, as it requires the c stick to look around and navigate. Overall it's a great game for any Minecraft fan. It is not as complete as say, the PC version but it is still worth the price to be able to mine on the go.

    I was not aware this game was only for the NEW Nintendo 3DS gaming system. Had to return the game for my son after he opened it for a bday present and was really upset that he could not play his favorite game on his old 3DS

    Only problem is we didn't see the label that said "New" 3DS...actually didn't know there was a difference, however Best Buy was very gracious and even though package was open, they let us swap it out for another game for our daughter!

    This game is really fun and a lot of exploring but i wish there was quests, a story to follow, maybe some bosses to fight, and i would really love some multiplayer content. Either way excellent game, fun for creating and exploring.

    Kids love minecraft, one of their electronic outlets I don't mind since it lets them be so creative. Compared to the xbox version the controls seem a bit harder then they should be, but I'm sure that will be overcome in time.

    Bought this as a christmas for my daughter. She loves Minecraft and received a DS alongside this. She said the game was just like minecraft and liked it but the controls were VERY subpar.

    I bought this for my friend's daughter as a birthday present and it was perfect! She loves it and plays Minecraft on it every day after dinner. Money well spent!

    This 3Ds edition of Minecraft is a great edition to my Nephew's Minecraft World. He loves everything Minecraft. It will entertain him for hours, until the next Minecraft product comes along.

    We thought this game was for 3ds but apparently it isn’t. My son has the older 3ds but it is for new one. There definitely needs to be better info on how the old 3ds will not work with it.

    I wish my son could have used this game on his regular 3ds, but its only made for the "New" 3ds which is not compatible Probably is a great game since my son already loves Minecraft.

    After my 7 year old begged for this, we were excited to try it but quickly let down. I guess it doesn’t have as many features or ways to play as it does on an iPad?
