The Simpsons Minecraft Skin Pack is made with fans of both in mind. Xbox chief Phil Spencer says, "We have an active community of more than 14 million die-hard Minecraft fans 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." The company previously struck a similar deal with the BBC to bring Doctor Who characters into the game last year.
This time Xbox decided to start the year off strong with The Simpsons Minecraft Skin Pack. The Verge writes that Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie alongside 19 other characters from the hit TV series will all be available as part of a downloadable skin pack.
