Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products and Xbox have teamed up to launch The Simpsons content packs for Minecraft Xbox 360 and Xbox One editions.
Launching in late February 2015, the downloadable pack will include the entire Simpsons family as well as 19 of Springfield's finest.
“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 bring The Simpsons to life on Minecraft Xbox 360 and Xbox One editions. I can’t wait to see what the community creates.”
Roz Nowicki, executive vice president of global sales and retail for Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products, added: “Like The Simpsons, Minecraft is a true cultural phenomenon embraced by people of all ages, from every corner of the globe.
“We know fans of the show will have a ton of fun bringing the colorful characters of Springfield into the intricate worlds they’ve been building in Minecraft.”
Minecraft’s The Simpsons downloadable content pack for Xbox will release in late February for $1.99 on Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
