Official Minecraft Lego sets in development

According to a press release made by LEGO CUUSOO, a branch of the Lego Company designed to take submissions for new Lego sets and assess their worth, there is at least one set on the way based on the incredibly popular PC game Minecraft.

Back in December last year the game’s developer Mojang submitted to the company the concept for Lego sets based on the game and began a petition. The petition recently crossed ten thousand signatures which prompted the concept to be looked at by the Lego review board, who had this to say in a press release.

“We’re happy to announce that the Minecraft project on LEGO CUUSOO has passed the LEGO review and we are now developing a concept that celebrates the best aspects of building with the LEGO system and in Minecraft. We can’t wait to show it to you-but it isn’t ready just yet. These things take time, so we appreciate your patience. More details are to come.”

As well as this upcoming Lego set there are both Xbox Live Arcade  and mobile versions of the game coming as Mojang expands on the success of the PC game. 

Are you looking forward to being able to bring your love of Minecraft to the living room, or is a Lego set based on a Lego simulator going too far in your opinion?  Let us know in the comments below
