According to a Japanese eShop listing, Minecraft Wii U will support both the Wii U Pro Controller as well as USB keyboards.
The listing was spotted by redditor Gamestoper. The listing also stated that the Wii U version would also support voice chat. None of this has been confirmed by Nintendo, Mojang, or Microsoft.
Mojang recently announced that, contrary to popular belief, Minecraft Wii U would not use the system’s game pad for inventory management. Mojang developer Owen Hill said that the such a feature “would be cool” but for the time being, the gamepad would be used as an alternate screen.
Minecraft Wii U launches on December 18 on the eShop. The game will include six DLC packs, with over a dozen more available for purchase
