Minecraft Officially Coming to China

Microsoft and Mojang’s uber-popular Minecraft will make the jump to China thanks to a new deal struck with NetEase, Inc.

NetEase announced a five-year deal to bring the mobile and PC versions of Minecraft to China, and Mojang will tailor the game to the new market.

NetEase has been known for bringing many popular games to China, including just about every major Blizzard game out there, from World of Warcraft to Starcraft II to Diablo III, so it’s not a huge surprise that the company nabbed the contract to bring Minecraft to the country as well.
