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.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
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.
