Fans of “Minecraft: Story Mode” by Telltale Games are in for a very special treat, as the second episode is available right now. It turns out that the episode came out faster than anyone expected, as there was no prior announcement regarding the second episode, which has been titled “Assembly Required.”

According to Power Up Gaming, the announcement was made by a joint press release issued by Telltale Games and “Minecraft” license holder Mojang. Both companies expressed their joy about the positive reaction that the first episode has received and is the possible reason that the second one was released in an unexpected manner.

Both companies have also promised that the second episode will feel completely different from player to player, depending on the choices made in the first episode. While these changes weren’t explained in detail, they should be enough to get curious gamers to buy the second episode right away, especially if they enjoyed the first one.

Those that want a physical copy of the game can purchase the “season pass disc.” This version of the game comes with the first episode and lets fans download the other episodes as soon as they’re available.

The season pass disc has proven to be a bit controversial with fans, as many assumed that a physical copy would only be released after all the episodes are available. This is what Telltale Games has done with their previous game series’ like “The Walking Dead” and “Fables: The Wolf Among Us.”

In other “Minecraft” news, IGN has confirmed that the original “Minecraft: Story Mode” would be coming to the Wii U as well. Originally, the game wasn’t planned for Nintendo’s current console, but Telltale Games have confirmed that the series will be hitting the Wii U soon enough.

This is the first “Minecraft” game to ever come to a Nintendo platform, so it will be interesting to see if this leads to the original “Minecraft” title getting ported to the Wii U. It is a bit odd having this adventure series be the first “Minecraft” game for the console, but so far no plans have been revealed for the actual “Minecraft” to come to Nintendo’s console.
