It’s pretty obvious that Minecraft has needed blonde female NPCs for quite some time. I’m pretty stoked about this update.
But jokes aside, I’ve had enough of riding pigs all the time. We’ll finally have proper mounts. Minecraft for PC was initially released as an alpha in May 17, 2009, with a full release following a few years later on November 18, 2011. 7 million copies of Minecraft for PC were sold by August, 2012.
4J Studios’ Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition was released on May 9, 2012 and surpassed six million downloads in March of this year.
