Minecraft developer Mojang has announced that the Pocket Edition of their million-selling tale of survival-builder will be getting a feature that’s long been requested: bigger worlds.

Writing on the developer’s official blog, Pocket Edition team member Daniel Kaplan had this update for those who love taking Minecraft on the go:

“We’re working on restructuring a lot of code to allow significantly bigger worlds in future updates. We’re also updating the AI, inventory, and a bunch of other things. Unfortunately we don’t have a release date yet, but so far, everything is going to plan.”

So, good news for you fans of Pocket Edition out there! Personally, as much as I love Minecraft, the idea of playing the game with no controls other than a touchscreen doesn’t sound like my idea of a fun time. I’m definitely interested in a “pocket edition” of Minecreaft, don’t get me wrong—it’s just that my idea of such a thing is the upcoming PlayStation Vita version. (Though I’d still love to also see a 3DS build, if such a release were to ever come to be.)
