Mass Effect was officially announced as the first Mash-Up Pack for Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition Sunday and 4J Studios followed that up by confirming what's in store for Title Update 13 (TU13) and teased a little about what game could be featured in a Mash-Up Pack in the future.
TU13 is definitely a bug fix update for Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition which is the norm following a big update like TU12 which added a host of new items and features. Minecraft players at Minecraftforum.net have already notified 4J Studios of several bugs found in the game such as Mob heads spinning around wildly, graphical glitches around cocoa pods, lighting issues and sound issues among the list being looked at by QA Tester Steven Woodward from the studio.
As for the next Mash-Up Pack, 4J Studios asked what fans on Twitter what other games they would like to see mashed up with Minecraft in the future. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim appeared to be one of the overwhelming responses causing the developer to note, "Did you know 4J Studios ported The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion to PS3 for Bethesda? 4J ♥ Bethesda :)"
That appears to be a fairly clear signal about the contents of a future Mash-Up Pack and really wouldn't be all that surprising given Skyrim's popularity. It also wouldn't be the first time the two games have been mashed up as the concept was featured in a Machinima trailer in 2011.
Amusingly, 4J Studios also said, "There does seem to be one Mash-up Pack being suggested a lot more than any others, and it's not My Little Pony :) Sorry Bronies..."
For those that aren't aware, Mash-Up Packs are a combination of textures, skins, music and re-skinned user interface that revolve around other games. This includes a Themed World or the ability for players to create their own with the same look. The first Mash-Up Pack is Mass Effect and will be released Wednesday, Sept. 4 for $3.99 (320 MS Points).
