    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.

    Bought this for my grandson. He also received the version for the Switch, which has way better graphics. He was a little disappointed with the graphics on this version, but hopefully he'll get used to it and still want to play it. Not sure if I'd recommend it or not. I guess it depends on how picky the player is, maybe?

    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 My son loves Minecraft and likes that he can now play it on his New 2DS system, rather than is outdated Ipad pocket edition that keeps crashing.

    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.

    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.

    We bought this game in store on Black Friday. It is a gift for our children for Christmas, so the game hasn't been played yet. We were very happy to find this game for such a great price. Best Buy is our "go to" location for buying games and accessories.

    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.

    Bought this as a gift for my son, and he loves it. He already has Minecraft on his PlayStation, but I thought this would be a great addition to his new collection since he just received a 3DS for Christmas. I was right.

    I play Minecraft every day. It is fun and for everyone. I especially like the Mario mashup game that was given free. And now you can get the Holiday game for only $5.99. You can play it and see if you like it first but it is great too!

    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.

    My son kept bugging me to play minecraft on the PS4, and that requires using the TV. This is great as he can play and build and be creative with it, even if we dont want to watch it on the TV. He really enjoys it!

    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.

    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

    I purchase the Nintendo 2DS XL just for this game. My nephew had the regular 2DS and wasn’t able to play this game on. Once I got him the 2DS XL and this game, he’s been in heaven

    This game arrived promptly. This game was great for my younger grandson. In fact both my grandsons had this game on their Christmas list and Santa is going to bring both of them this game!

    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.

    What more can you say about this game. Bought it for my son for road trips. He loves it. Why just have it on the computer, Iphone, PS3 and PS4. Might as well get it on everything that you can.

    My grandson was so excited to receive this game. He absolutely loves legos & this is his favorite game to watch on you tube. So he is completely elated to own the game now.
