Minecraft - Pocket Edition was one of the most requested mobile titles for good amount of time. But when it finally hit the mobile market it was hardly what the community wanted. However, designer Daniel Kaplan has broken the silence on Mojang's blog to deliver the news that we can soon expect Survival Mode in Minecraft - Pocket Edition.
In his blog he apologizes for the delay in updates and explains that the intial code wouldn't support survival mode and thus had to be completely redone. He's announced that the update will be submitted to both Android Market and iOS App Store by February 8th.
