The Simpsons Skin Pack

Microsoft, Mojang, and Twentieth Century Fox are bringing the Simpsons Skin Pack to Minecraft for Xbox 360 and Xbox One sometime in late February. The Simpsons Skin Pack will cost $2 and includes Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie along with 19 other characters.

“We have an active community of more than 17 million die-hard Minecrafters on Xbox Live enjoying the wide range of downloadable content on Xbox, and they have been clamoring for us to bring Simpsons characters to the game,” said Phil Spencer, Head of Xbox. “We are thrilled to partner with Twentieth Century Fox and Gracie Films to bringThe Simpsons to life on Minecraft Xbox 360 and Xbox One editions.  I can’t wait to see what the community creates.”

Minecraft has been downloaded over 100 million times since its release in 2009 and I have yet to take the plunge. I don’t quite understand the appeal to this game, but @StephenkJanes, my co-host on the Pixelated Podcast, adores the Minecraft franchise. Clearly, I’m the crazy one.
