Earlier this year, Mojang announced that a port of Minecraft, its popular action-adventure game for PC, will be arriving on the Xbox 360 later this year. However, Mojang has now amended that statement, saying that the game will now be released next Spring.
Minecraft revolves around creating environment and surviving the wilderness. The 360 port, co-developed by 4J Studios (Who has previously worked on ports of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Banjo-Kazooie), will feature many of the PC version’s features, as well as some new ones. The 360 port will feature optional Kinect functionality, and cross-platform support with the PC version.
Minecraft for 360 is set to be available for preview during MineCon, which begins on Friday, November 19 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Microsoft will be co-hosting the event, and will also help present the 360 version’s demo.
