Rare Minecraft Skins Return To Xbox!

In celebration of Minecraft’s second birthday on Xbox 360, 4JStudios has a released a new round of birthday skins and included amongst them are Banjo-Kazooie, Conker and Viva Pinata! Here’s the official press release from Rare with additional information available on their website..

Rare characters have filled a sizeable number of Skin Pack slots since the 2012 launch of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition. Now, after an 18-month break, they’re back! To mark Minecraft’s second birthday on Xbox 360, April 9th sees 4J Studios release a free 2nd Birthday Skin Pack featuring an array of new and revised player skins – and among the game series returning to the party are Banjo-Kazooie, Conker and Viva Piñata.

Technical improvements allow the skins to be a little more elaborate these days, so you’ll see updated encores for some previously released Rare skins (check out the Pretztail’s newly pointy ears and bushy tail), while other characters that weren’t previously possible can now join the guest list (step forward solo Kazooie and the Banjo & Kazooie team-up).

Alongside highlights from Halo, Fable and Dust, here’s a full list of the Rare skins featured in this pack…

From the Banjo-Kazooie series: Banjo & Kazooie, Gruntilda, Kazooie
From the Viva Piñata series: Horstachio, Pretztail, Fudgehog
From the Conker series: Conker (Bad Fur Day), Conker (Live & Reloaded)

This 2nd Birthday Skin Pack, along with a re-release of the 1st Birthday Skin Pack, will only be available from May 9th–18th. Grab it while you can! No reason to hesitate considering it won’t cost you a penny.
