Microsoft has a new Nintendo game … that’s a strange thing to write.

Minecraft comes to Wii U on Thursday, and we got our hands on a copy of the blocky world-building phenomenon. We’re going to try it out to see what it’s like, and you can watch along as we punch trees and craft swords and shovels out of rocks.
