Minecraft, the blocky crafting and adventuring PC game that surprised gamers the world over with its charming visuals and indie ethos, is headed to Android devices. The smartphone version of the desktop game will launch at E3 initally as a Sony Ericsson Xperia Play exclusive, with controls optimised for the handset’s slide-out keypad.

Minecraft creator Notch will not helm the game himself, but has passed development duties over to his teammates Aron Neiminen and Jens Bergensten.

“When playing on smartphones you will have a different screen size compared to PC, different hardware, different attention spans and thus the game needs to be customised to fit the mobile specifications,” an anonymous Mojang employee told Gamasutra.

No news yet on the games release date, cost, or how it will shape up against the full fat PC version, but we’re expecting everything to be revealed at Sony Ericsson’s E3 press conference on June 7th.

iOS versions of the game, with full touch control schemes, will launch later in the year.
