Minecraft Becomes a Little More Magic-al
Well, some versions, anyway.
Do you love Minecraft and Magic: The Gathering, but somehow can’t manage to find time in your life for both? Then I have good news!
Well, contingent on your primary means of playing Minecraft being either the Windows 10 or Pocket (known collectively as the “Bedrock Engine”) editions, anyway.
Mojang and Microsoft have announced that soon, you’ll be able to download 15 Magic: The Gathering skins, including “fearless planeswalkers” and legendary “Magic creatures,” all for just $2.99! A specific date wasn’t given, but the press release I received says it’s out today. At the very least, it sounds like you can already try a few for free right now.
And if I’m being honest with you, all I know about Magic: The Gathering is that it’s sort of like Yu-Gi-Oh!, except it isn’t and predates that franchise, as well as whatever I’ve gleaned from the occasional LoadingReadyRun sketch (but I don’t watch the more dedicated Magic stuff they do). So if you’re looking for more info, then let me just throw you over to their official blog post, where you can read more insights and see more skins and images and have a better idea than I do of what you’re looking at.
