Minecraft iOS released tomorrow

Minecraft Pocket Edition will be released for iPhone and iPad tomorrow.

News of the App Store release comes just days before the MineCon event in Las Vegas, where the PC version of the game will be officially released. Minecraft finally went gold earlier this week.

The portable version of the game was released as a timed exclusive for Sony Ericsson's gaming handset Xperia Play, and is now available for other Android devices. The iOS version is already available in New Zealand, where it is priced at NZ$9.99 which, at current exchange rates, suggests a UK price of £4.99.
