Minecraft for Wii U’s inventory system hits a snag.
Minecraft for Wii U will not include inventory management for the Wii U’s Gamepad according to the Director or Creative Communications Owen Hill. A fan on Twitter asked Mr. Hill if the game would included the feature to allow the user to select and store inventory using the Nintendo Wii U’s prized controller the Wii U Game Pad. Unfortunately, the news wasn’t the expected answer:
@devatrox Not at the moment, sorry. It's just used as an alternate screen if someone is using the TV. Would be cool though. 🙂

There is some hope — however — as the the tweet by Owen Hill made mention that it won’t be available at the initial launch. So we can hopefully expect that there could be an update to the Wii U version of the game in the near future after it’s launch.
On December 7th, Mojang announced that the Wii U version of Minecraft would be released on December 17th, 2015. Many were very happy to receive the news as the Nintendo Wii U is the only console where the game hasn’t been released.
