Minecraft – Pocket Edition To Be Updated Next Month

When Minecraft: Pocket Edition hit the App Store, we were pretty disappointed. It felt unfinished and under-featured, but fortunately the folks at Mojang feel the same way. We’ll be seeing some big changes to the app sometime in February. Mojang’s Daniel Kaplan wrote in a blog today that the next Minecraft: Pocket Edition update will include ‘animals and new blocks,’ as well as lay the ‘foundation for survival [mode].’

It seems like they’ve responded well to the community and understand that people want an experience more comparable to Minecraft proper. They say that they originally set out to make the Pocket Edition a lot like Creative mode, but audience feedback would indicate that people want something else. This update will not introduce crafting to the game just yet, but we’re eager to see the direction Minecraft: Pocket Edition will take.

‘Minecraft’ Movie to Be Directed by ‘Always Sunny’ Actor

Fans of the highly adults-only comedy show It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia might be surprised to hear who’s been announced to direct the upcoming Minecraft movie. It’s Rob McElhenney, known better by fans of the show as Mac. From Touch Arcade:

He has plenty of production and writing experience from the long-running FX comedy, of course, but he has yet to direct a movie for himself. He’s working on a movie called Figment for Legendary Pictures, but it’s possible that’s on hiatus, or this takes precendence, or he’s working on this next. Regardless, this seems promising since It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is such a good show.
