Get your pick axe ready, Mojang’s highly anticipated Minecraft Pocket Edition has been officially released to the Android Market. As has been made clear almost since the announcement that the addictive world-building game would make its way to mobile handsets, you will need a Sony Ericsson Xperia Play to enjoy this one. Priced at $6.99, the exclusive release period for the Xperia Play should lsat a month or two before the game is made available to all compatible handsets. The game is still labeled as an Alpha release (v0.1), but it is packed full of features, including:

  • Randomized worlds
  • Build anything you can imagine
  • Build with 36 different kinds of blocks
  • Invite and play with friends to your world (local wireless network)
  • Save multi-player worlds on your own phone
For more on the announcement head over to the source link below, or simply follow through to the Android Market to download. Does the release of the game make the $1,000+ eBay auction of the Limited Edition Minecraft version of the Xperia Play any more tempting?
