Star Wars takes Minecraft to a galaxy far, far away

Christmas is still a month away (eep!), but for Star Wars fans who also like a bit of Minecraft, it might have come a bit early. Starting today, you can play as Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Leia Organa or even a Cantina band member in Minecraft for Xbox 360 and Xbox One, with the launch of the Star Wars Classic Skin Pack.

That’s a lot of familiar Star Wars faces, right there – but if you were expecting it to cost a lot of your earthly money, think again. The Star Wars Classic Skin Pack for Minecraft (on Xbox platforms only, sorry PC!) will set you back around US$2.99. That’s it.

…and in case you’re somehow still not happy with all that, Microsoft is already teasing that more Star Wars content will be coming to Minecraft in the future, so keep an eye out!
