The Minecraft phenomena is one step closer to conquering the universe.

Nintendo announced today that Minecraft Wii U Edition will be released on Dec. 17 for $30. A release on the Wii U means that Minecraft is now basically everywhere that you’ll find video games: PC, PlayStation, Xbox, iOS, and Android. You can even play the game on Kindle Fire.

The Wii U edition of Minecraft will be playable on the Wii U’s GamePad, which will come in handy in case you need to kick a player off the television without interrupting the construction of ultra-realistic cities or giant arcade machines or plans for real-life national parks.

Six content packs will be included for free with the Wii U version of the game, with 16 other expansion packs available for download on the Nintendo eShop, including skin packs for The Simpsons, Star Wars, Doctor Who, Mass Effect, and Skyrim.
