Developer Mojang has announced that Minecraft will be getting a free update tomorrow on the Wii U. In addition to updating the base game, new content will be added as well.

Among the new features are banners, where players can add personalized banners to their creations, the addition of polar bears out in the wild, and more.

Here’s the complete list of additions according to Mojang:

  • Polar bears and their adorable offspring are to be found wandering frozen biomes.
  • Banners! Spruce the place up with your personalised drapery.
  • New terrain generation: Igloos now appear in Arctic biomes, and gargantuan fossils lie beneath the earth awaiting your discovery.
  • Beetroots! You can farm them and turn them into a restorative soup. Delish!
  • Other new blocks: End Bricks, Grass Path, Frosted Ice, Magma, Nether Wart Block, Red Nether Brick and Bone Block.

Minecraft has consistently been one of the best selling games on the Wii U eShop, and often the only third party game found in the top 20. It’s good to see the developers still supporting it with updates and new content.
