Recently, we brought you news that the folks at PlayXBLA
had new details to share about the upcoming title update
for the wildly popular Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition
. Now, more details have surfaced about Title Update 7, which will bring the game in line with the Java version 1.0.1, but will be missing The End. The End is set to appear in Title Update 8.
Before we bring you the new information, here are some further details on the brief TU7 notes we had before.
Animal Breeding – feed two of the same animals a particular food and they’ll “kiss” and like magic a little baby animal will appear. Cute!
Brewing – You’ll be able to make Potions! Pull up a Brewing Stand and experiment.
Experience Points – Now you can collect Experience Orbs from mining, killing mobs, breeding and using Furnaces. Experience is used for Enchanting!
Enchanting– A new process which uses your Experience points to grant special abilities to armour, tools and weapons. You’ll need to craft yourself an Enchantment table to get started.
Mushroom Biome – A new type of land where the humble mushroom is king. New block Mycelium can be found here and Mooshrooms! Try growing yourself a giant mushroom.
Nether Fortresses – a structure that can appear in the Nether, bringing new blocks to the game too. Nether Fortresses are the Nether equivalent of Strongholds. Look out for the Blaze which can found in these new structures, they’ve got a habit of shooting out fire.
Skin animations – Some of your skins will have new animations (optional) to give them a bit more life and personality of their own. It’s something new and something that will be expanded upon as we do future updates, even older skins might get given their own animations as time goes on, so keep a look out for them in the future too. You may also notice that skins can have hats, and stuff…
That's not all that's coming along with Title Update 7, of course, so here's the list of other additions.

In addition to all of that news, there has also been confirmation as to what the festive skin pack
