Minecraft Skin Pack 2 to Feature Jet Force Gemini

By litepink, 4 years ago
Between the previously released “Skin Pack 1” and the upcoming “Skin Pack 2” in MINECRAFT, there have been a lot of cross-promoting with other Microsoft titles. This latest preview for the second skin set is somewhat peculiar, as it features Juno, Vela, and Lupus from the Nintendo 64 title Jet Force Gemini. The intellectual property still belongs to Rare of course, which is has long been under Microsoft’s arm.

Skin Pack 2 - Jet Force Gemini

Skin Pack 2 - Jet Force Gemini

Jet Force Gemini has made other cameos before, including past titles such as http://www.trueachievements.com/Kameo-xbox-360.htm and Viva Piñata: Trouble In Paradise. What makes this appearance interesting is that 4J Studios, the team responsible for porting over Minecraft to Xbox 360 also handled the ports of Perfect Dark and http://www.trueachievements.com/BanjoKazooie-xbox-360.htm to Xbox LIVE Arcade, two other Rare titles. Perhaps this is a hint of things to come, or perhaps it's our imagination and speculation running wild (as there has been no indication of an XBLA port, ever).

"Skin Pack 2" will contain these and over 40 more to choose from for 160 MSP when it releases in the near future.

This just brings the thoughts of Killer Instint possibly coming into play.

Never played it, but I think there was a poster for it in Banjo-Tooie.

It was a game on the N64 that I have very little memory of actually. I only remember always picking the dog, ^^

Even more important, if there were a port of KI I would scream like a little school girl.
How much for the whole kitten kaboodle?

Jet Force Gemini is one of my all time favorites! Why isn't this on XBLA yet, Rare?

They teased about it coming to Xbox live in Banjo Kazooie Nuts n Bolts but it never came around.

I've been dying for an HD port of JFG ever since they brought Banjo and Perfect Dark over to XBLA.

P4R4N0ID P4ND4 said:i don't have a clue what that game isIt actually was an interesting sci-fi game where you fight alien ant people. You can play as a boy, a girl with a tiny skirt, or a dog with a backpack with lasers. I'm always suprised when they make refrences to it. T'was a solid game on the N64. Nice looking too but late in the life cycle, as was Conker's Bad Furday.

I'd be all for it, but not without modifying the Tribal collection segment (you have to find every last one to access the final level). Reducing the requirement (or giving a means to find them easier) and giving an achievement for finding them all would be the way to go.

And Killer Instinct can come too.

If they announce skins for Conker I will buy Minecraft immediately and if they do port Jet Force Gemini to XBLA it will be a first day buy no matter what price.
