We recently purchased Minecraft for the Wii U. My brother is considering purchasing so he can play with us. My question is, if we want to play in the same world, do we always have to play at the same time? If he joins my world, can he only play that world when I am playing or can he play when I am offline in the world I created?
well, if it's anything like normal servers, then yes. however, console minecraft is significantly less good, so i don't know? it should be the same answer as the other console versions, but i would like to know this too.

Whoever creates the world on their Wii U would have to have their console on. What some console users do is keep the "host" console on even if they are not playing so the guests could play. The world would have to be saved by the host each time before shutting console off so you do not lose stuff you made.
