4J Studios this week said the Minecraft retail SKU for Sony Corp’s Playstation 3 will be sold May 16.
The PS3 version is currently available in digital format at the Playstation Store.
The title is in development for the Playstation 4 and the PS Vita.
It includes a new training mode that guides new users into the crafting process. In addition, a new console-friendly crafting interface allow users to see exactly which materials are needed to craft each item.
In the title, users can craft and build items by chopping world items like trees, rocks, and sand to build an array of tools, fuel, and materials. Tools can be used to craft materials faster, fuel can heat items to form new product or food from the furnace, and materials can be used to build a shelter to keep safe from monsters.
