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.

Minecraft Pocket, Windows 10 editions are getting “The Boss” update

Minecraft is probably most known for all the creative and insane things players build in the blocky virtual world. But Minecraft also has a darker side to it: Survival Mode, where not everything is friendly and your equally blocky virtual existence is in danger every time the square sun goes down or when you venture into dark, ominous corners. Playing on that mode, Mojang, now part of Microsoft, is adding a few new features to Minecraft’s mobile and Windows 10 versions, including bosses and, of course, boss fights that make Minecraft more than just a crafting game.

Given Minecraft's influence in pop culture, particularly in gaming, it isn't really a surprise that it's getting a movie of its own.
