Update August 24: Skin Pack 2 is released today! Hit the links below to grab the full version for 160 MSP or the free trial with a sampling of the 45 skins included. Enjoy!
Another payload of more than 40 premium skins will arrive in Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition soon with the release of Skin Pack 2. Happily, we've managed to get in on the action again with a new assemblage of Rare faces, building on the reception given to Banjo and his entourage in Skin Pack 1.
The first sighting of a Rare presence in this pack came about on August 10th, when official Xbox LIVE Arcade site PlayXBLA casually posted an image showing a glamorous Jo Dark (Perfect Dark) and bipedal Pretztail (Viva Piñata) as part of the line-up. Last week we added three more to that list as third-person insect-blasting gem Jet Force Gemini got its dues. Team leader Juno, his sister Vela and augmented team mutt Lupus will all be reporting for duty on Minecraft soil.
That's not all: today the Rare squad is fleshed out by a further five. Joanna Dark shows up in two more guises (original PD outfit and the PD Zero look – loving the fringe) with Elvis the Maian providing an escort, while Horstachio and Fizzlybear both amble over to make it a trio representing Piñata Island.
Skin Pack 2 will be available soon, featuring the full suite of skins from Perfect Dark, Viva Piñata and Jet Force Gemini. Eyes peeled – and check PlayXBLA.com for further peeks into the pack from other participating studios!
