Xbox One X Minecraft 4K gets cross-platform multiplayer

Given that Minecraft is going on six years old, you'd be forgiven for thinking that there wasn't anything left to announce about the indie favorite. You'd be wrong, of course, because Microsoft had not one, but two big things to reveal for Minecraft during its E3 2017 press conference today. This first was that Minecraft will get the 4K treatment with Xbox One X, which may not be much of a shocker to most.

Minecraft Magic the Gathering skins mashes two worlds together

Minecraft Magic the Gathering skins mashes two worlds together

Minecraft is a digital world where dozens if not hundreds of resourceful and persistent players enjoy bringing favorite worlds and characters into its blocky, voxely world. Unofficially of course. But why should only fans have the fun? Even those who actually make Minecraft must be fans of some things, right? Indeed, last March we saw Mojang bring officially sanctioned Power Ranger skins to commemorate the launching of the new film. Although there is really no occasion to mark, Mojang is announing the arrival of 2D Magic the Gathering characters to the 3D world of Minecraft.

Microsoft and Mojang have announced a new premium marketplace incoming for Minecraft.

Minecraft gets some Mighty Power Rangers skins

Minecraft gets some Mighty Power Rangers skins

Minecraft isn't exactly one to directly endorse some other commercial franchise, but if it didn't do this, someone would have done it anyway. It probably doesn't hurt that there are a few Power Rangers fans inside the now Microsoft-owned Mojang. So, lo and behold, as of update 1.0.5, Minecraft players on consoles, mobile, and Windows 10 will be getting a dose of sentai action via the Miney, er, Mighty Morphing Power Rangers skin pack.

Pokemon Red in Minecraft faithfully recreates even the bugs

We can never really get tired of all the wild and insane things people come up with in Minecraft? Recreate a real-world city “to scale”? Go for it! Recreate a classic game? Definitely!

The folks at FMTwo Game Inc. have created a new version of the Gameband, a wearable smart device made for gamers.

This new Gameband will be pre-loaded with 20 mini-games, several of which are "reconditioned" versions of classics like Pong and Breakout.

Pokemon Cobalt and Amethyst Minecraft map is all sorts of cool

Pokemon Cobalt and Amethyst Minecraft map is all sorts of cool

While Pokemon has long been a craze, even before things went crazy when Pokemon GO hit mainstream media. As such, there has been no shortage of fan-made games and content, many of which have sadly been taken down by the dreaded DMCA notice. Pokemon Cobalt and Amethyst, however, deserves a special honor. It's not a mere recreation of existing games and monsters but an almost completely new spin. But even more impressive is the fact that it all happens inside a vanilla Minecraft map.

Minecraft for Windows 10 Mobile will no longer be updated

Minecraft for Windows 10 Mobile will no longer be updated

Microsoft's smartphone platforms, from Windows Phone to Windows 10 Mobile, can't seem to catch a break. Until recently, and even now to some extent, it has been sorely lacking in apps. The mobile game situation was even worse. And just when you thought the worst was over, some bad news is hitting Windows 10 Mobile users. Still unofficially confirmed, Microsoft-owned Mojang might stop updating Minecraft
Pocket Edition for the smartphone platform, leaving the open world voxel game to stagnate and, eventually, die there.
