Markus Persson, founder of Minecraft developer Mojang, has announced that iOS versions of the sleeper hit MineCraft will be coming this year.

Aron Neiminen, “a new recruit to the Mojang team,” will be handling the iOS versions of the game, which will not be a direct transition but rather just feature the aspects that “make sense” for a touch-based device.

Sounds like a brilliant idea to me. MineCraft has already taken the Internet by storm, and if it can attract the same kind of attention that iOS apps can get, it’s set to be a massive success. Good luck to them, I say.
