Minecraft: Pocket Edition eventually coming to Windows Phone 

Minecraft: Pocket Edition will available at some point for owners of a Windows Phone.

According to a tweet from Mojang's Jens Bergensten, it's on the way, but it will probably be a bit of a wait.

"Yes, Minecraft: Pocket Edition is coming to the Windows Phone," he tweeted. "The port runs already, but there's still much to do before any release."

It only makes sense it would arrive on the mobile format, due to Microsoft purchasing Mojang, and it's a rather popular mobile title: as of April 2014, 21 million copies have been sold.

Thanks, Joystiq.
