Microsoft says:

“Minecraft: Pocket Edition for Windows Phone 8.1 includes all of Minecraft’s mobile features, including the tense action of Survival mode, the limitless exploration of Creative mode, and multiplayer fun over local Wi-Fi networks. This release includes infinite worlds, with the new biomes, caves, mobs, villages and more that players love.

Minecraft is available today across the world as a £4.99 download in the Windows Phone Store for Windows Phones running 8.1.”

You can pick it up from the Microsoft store right now. Heck, you could even pay for it using Bitcoins.
