Good news for LittleBigPlanet fans on Sony’s consoles! A brand-new mash-up pack featuring Sackboy, Sackgirl OddSock, Toggle, Swoop and many more, is on its way to Minecraft on PlayStation.
Mash up packs let you change the way Minecraft looks. This one lets you LittleBigPlanet-ify your Minecraft world with textures, characters and creatures from Media Molecule’s adorable platformer. It even comes with a pre-build landscape and some catchy tunes taken straight from the game. What more could a Little Big Minecrafter possibly want?
The LittleBigPlanet Mash-up pack will be available to download from July 1st. It’ll cost £3.29/€3.99.
The Minecon 2015 Skin Pack (All console editions)
Even more DLC news for y’all! To celebrate the awesomeness that is next week’s Minecon 2015, we’re releasing a free bundle of skins for both Sony and Microsoft consoles. This pack is extra-special because it features Alex and Steve wearing a selection of smart capes.
The Minecon 2015 Skin Pack will be available for just 15 days from the 1st of July onwards. Download it from Xbox Live Marketplace/PSN while it’s still hot. You’ve got nothing to lose but your bandwidth!
実はマインクラフトだけが女性キャラクターの追加を突然発表したわけではありません。スマートフォン向けゲーム「Temple Run 2」の開発元であるImangi Studiosは、最初は有料もしくはコインによるアンロックでしか選べなかった女性キャラクター「Scarlett Fox」を無料で追加できるように変更しています。
このように各ゲームベンダーが女性キャラクターを突然追加するようになったことには理由があります。実は3月4日のワシントン・ポストに掲載された記事にて、12歳の少女がTemple Run 2に代表されるエンドレスラン系のゲームで女性キャラクターがプレイできないことを痛烈に批判。少女はエンドレスラン系のゲームにおける女性キャラクターの少なさに気づき、自ら同ジャンルのゲームのトップ50をダウンロードして調査を実施したところ、性別を認識できるキャラクターが登場するゲームのうち98％が男性キャラクターを採用しており、女性キャラクターを採用しているのは46％にとどまっていたことが明らかになりました。
Fire up your Xbox, load up Minecraft, then throw a freshly-baked cake at your television! It’s the most appropriate way to celebrate Minecraft: 360 Edition’s birth!1It’s three years old! If console Minecraft was a human it would be gaining independence and learning how to use zips.
To celebrate this monumental occasion2 we’re giving the 20 million players on Xbox 360 and Xbox One a heap of colourful skins. From today until the 17th of May three packs will be available to download for free. There’s a brand-new bundle featuring veteran Mojangstas and a few cheeky extras, our 2nd Birthday Skin Pack from last year, and our 1st Skin Pack from Minecraft’s first birthday.
Veteran 360 players might already have the older packs, but this is the first time any of them have been available on Xbox One. Be sure to snap them up, early(ish) adopters.
Big thanks to 4J Studios for doing such a great job on the console versions and massive thanks to you for playing our game, no matter your platform of choice.
I bring news of skins, achievements, and music! Let’s get on with it.
When most players begin their Minecraft adventure there aren’t many looks to choose from. In fact, you only get to play as our blue-shirted friend. Now, everyone loves Steve – he’s probably the most famous minecrafter in the world, and has excellent stubble.
But jolly old Steve doesn’t really represent the diversity of our playerbase. For that reason, we’re giving all players opportunity to play with an Alex skin instead. She brings thinner arms, redder hair, and a ponytail; she actually looks a bit like Jens from certain angles.
Players on all consoles will get the Alex skins for free this Wednesday.
Playstation people get The Simpsons!
Playstation players are getting another skin pack this week. The Simpsons, and a bunch of their their closest friends, enemies, and acquaintances are on the way. The bundle includes Principal Seymour Skinner, Groundskeeper Willie, everyone’s favourite… Dewey Largo (!) and a lot more. Download it from Wednesday, if you like.
The Simpsons skin pack is already available on Microsoft consoles.
Xbox 360 users get extra achievements and bonus tunes!
Achievements – some love ‘em, some are indifferent to them, some don’t even know they exist. I know Marc is really, really into them them; take from that what you will.
Until now, Minecraft: Xbox One Edition has included more achevements than 360 Edition. That’s a bit silly when you think about it. This update will add 30 new achievements to the Xbox 360 version of Minecraft, boosting the potential gains to a smooth 1000 gamerscore. Hunt them down but don’t let them rule your playtime. And don’t forget to eat or go to the toilet.
We’re also bringing a bundle of new music tracks to Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition. After this update there’ll be more of C418’s plinky plonky goodness in-game. Nice.
That’s it for now! Have a great week and thanks for playing Minecraft, y’all.
今まで、マインクラフト XBOX ONE 版には XBOX 360版より多くの実績が含まれて、実績について考えると、それはちょっとだけ馬鹿げていた。このアップデートでは 30 の新しい実績が XBOX 360 バージョンのマインクラフトに追加されます。これにより 1000 ゲーマースコアは押し上げるでしょう。実績を手に入れろ、しかし君のプレイ時間をそれに支配されてはいけない。あと、食べるのとトイレに行くのは忘れないでね。
マインクラフト XBOX 360 版には、新しいミュージックトラックのバンドルも持ってきたよ。このアップデートの後から、ゲーム内で C418 のシンプルでいい感じの曲が増えるよ。
Since the release of Skin Studio over 900,000 skins have been created, almost 3,000,000 comments written, and over 2,500,000 likes cast. Not too shabby. A lot has changed in Minecraft since then too, so rather than patch the older version, the good people at 57digital have remade their app from the ground up.
A completely new user interface and easier to use editing system
Full support for both Steve & Alex
3D Previews everywhere – including while editing your skin!
Uses the new Minecraft API for importing a skin by username
Loads of advanced tools (including the much requested copy & paste!)
Over 900,000 community skins
The ability to submit your own creation to the community or download & modify!
Upload your skin to minecraft.net and change your skin for PC/Mac.
A trial version of Skin Studio is also available. Skin Studio Lite gives you the chance to design a full Minecraft Skin, but with slightly limited tools. It’s also worth pointing out that Skin Studio Pro users get the Encore upgrade for free! Just go to the updates tab on the app store.
Between Monday, January 20, 07:00 CET (Stockholm time) and Wednesday, January 22, 07:00 CET (also Stockholm time), we’ll be migrating our skin and cape databases. During these days, uploading skins and changing/redeeming capes will not be possible. Sorry for any inconvenience!
