Minecraft: PlayStation Vita Edition will be available to download from October 16, developer 4J Studios has announced.

The Vita edition is Cross-Buy and therefore free for anyone who has already bought Minecraft on PlayStation 3 (but is not free for those who have the game on PlayStation 4).

"We're now working on an update for all Minecraft console editions to move up to the equivalent of Java 1.6.4 version," 4J Studios explained via Twitter. "It may take some time!"
