Minecraft AR hints at what possible with Apple ARKit

Minecraft AR hints at what possible with Apple ARKit

Next to Super Mario Bros., Minecraft is now perhaps the most "repurposed" game in the market, owing to how easily it can be ported to different platforms and new uses cases. So it isn't exactly surprising to have seen it make its way to virtual reality or, in this case, augmented reality. It is, however, almost ironic that "Minecraft AR", which Microsoft owns, would be available first on Apple's soon to be released ARKit platform.

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?

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.
