The Lunar New Year is almost here and the Minecraft gamers are now able to get some new skins, in order to celebrate it in-game. The players will be able to dress up the Minecraft characters as the ones from the classic Chinese tale, Journey of the West.
Minecraft: The Journey to the West Skin Pack is now available and it includes 15 different character skins, such as Monkey King, Lord Hundred-Eyes or Princess Iron Fan.
If you want to purchase the skin pack, you will need to pay 1.99 dollars, but keep in mind that you will be able to download the characters Guanyin and Red Boy for free.
Minecraft: The Journey to the West Skin Pack is now available for Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition (the game that’s currently in BETA) and Pocket Edition on mobile devices. It’s not sure yet when it will come to the consoles, but Microsoft said that each version of Minecraft has different development schedules and timelines for new content and skin packs. They didn’t confirm that this skin pack will be released for the consoles, but they didn’t deny it either.
Here is the full skin list that the Minecraft: The Journey to the West Skin Pack comes with: Red Boy, Friar Sand, Guanyin, Jade Emperor, Lady Earth Flow, Lord Hundred-Eyes, Monk Pig, Monkey King, Pale Bone Demon, Princess Iron Fan, Black Wind Demon, Bull Demon King, Scorpion Demon, Spider Demon and Xuanzang.
We also remind you that Microsoft has purchased the third-party application “MinecraftEdu” and it seems that the company is planning to build a new version that will be dedicated to learning. There are also some gamers that are currently working at remaking the entire map of the GTA 5 game, inside the Minecraft game.
