The Simpsons are making their way from Springfield to the Minecraft universe in the form of a fully-textured skin pack for Minecraft Xbox 360 and Xbox One editions! The release is expected to come in late February 2015 (around the same time as the new ability for players to change their in-game names). The downloadable skin pack will allow you to play as Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie (but not Grandpa). You can also choose from 19 additional characters from the Springfield Elementary School.
The Minecraft community is made up of more than 17 million players – who have been voicing their collective desire for new content and additional characters. Twentieth Century Fox and Microsoft have joined forces to answer the call! The Simpsons is the longest running scripted show in television history. Minecraft is one of the most popular video games with more than 100 million downloads. Many players and observers alike are excited to see what players create with this new skin pack.
Upon its release, you’ll be able to download the content pack for $1.99 USD on Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Stay tuned for more information!
