The Simpsons coming to Minecraft in February
The residents of Springfield will come to Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition and Minecraft: Xbox One Edition next month. Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie, as well as 19 other fan-favorite characters, will spring to life in the game (albeit in a bit more blocky form than before). Bringing together these two gigantic properties felt like a natural fit to Head of Xbox Phil Spencer as well as Twentieth Century Fox executive Roz Nowicki, who explained that the partnership combines the best of both worlds and how, “like The Simpsons, Minecraft is a true cultural phenomenon embraced by people of all ages, from every corner of the globe.”
The Simpsons pack will release for Xbox 360 and Xbox One in late February of this year for $1.99.
