There haven’t been many reasons to continue paying attention to Sony’s button-laden Xperia Play, but getting the first mobile version of Minecraft was a legitimately interesting grab for them.
The plan was to have Minecraft: Pocket Edition come to iOS eventually, and it’s happening tomorrow, after having been made available to other Android devices last month.
Interestingly, the iOS version’s multiplayer is designed so they can play with Android users, too, according to Minecraft developer Jens Bergensten on Twitter.
The launch is not coincidental, either. MineCon kicks off in Las Vegas later this week, which is also a celebration of Minecraft finally “going gold” and achieving version 1.0 status.
