Xbox's Phil Spencer is enthusiastic for the TV family's debut in the Minecraft universe, and states:
We have an active community of more than 17 million die-hard Minecrafters on Xbox Live enjoying the wide range of downloadable content on Xbox, and they have been clamoring for us to bring Simpsons characters to the game. We are thrilled to partner with Twentieth Century Fox and Gracie Films to bring The Simpsons to life on Minecraft Xbox 360 and Xbox One editions. I can’t wait to see what the community creates.
"The Simpsons" DLC addon for Minecraft will be available sometime in late February, and will cost the princely sum of $1.99 USD.
