Minecraft hitting iPhone, iPad

Officially, this time.

Swedish indie superstar Markus "Notch" Persson's time-destroying PC game Minecraft will launch on iPhone and iPad later this year.

The gargantuan success is being ported to Apple's magic machines by Aron Neiminen, who recently joined Persson's studio Mojang.

Gamasutra said the ports are not as fully-featured as the PC original. Instead, they will focus on elements that "make sense" for the touch-screen interface. Which ones are those?

Minecraft has sold over 1.3m downloads, which means Notch, who still uses a PayPal account to keep his cash safe, is richer than you.
