If your biggest gripe with Minecraft - Pocket Edition are the controls, then here's some good news.

According to Mojang developer Tommaso Checchi, a new update will see "proper controller support" finally added to Minecraft's mobile version.

Checchi didn't specify which controllers, but did refer to the major UI overhauls also coming to the game.

"Fortunately we'll soon raze the entire UI to the ground," said Checchi on Twitter.

These aren't the only exciting things coming to Minecraft - Pocket Edition.

The huge version 0.11 update is also on the way, bringing with it selectable character skins, localization, boats and fishing, and more.
