The Marvel Spider-Man Skin Pack is scheduled to be released on Wednesday, April 30 to the Xbox Store. The pack will cost $1.99 and come with 35 different skins representing super heroes as well as super villains.

Spider-Man himself has multiple skins. The original red and blue, the black Spider-Man outfit, the Iron Spider skin, the Future Foundation suit, and Bigtime suit were revealed in one image while the Spider-Man 2099 and Scarlet Spider suits were shown in another. The Green Goblin is there, of course, along with Venom, Mysterio, Black Cat, Rhino, Doctor Octopus, Chameleon and Scorpion. Even jolly J. Jonah Jameson will make an appearance.

This will mark the second Marvel themed pack to hit “Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition”. The Avengers Skin Pack was released to the game last December which featured Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Black Widow and assorted villains.

There’s no word on when the Marvel Spider-Man Skin Pack will be released to “Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition”. Of course, the Avengers Skin Pack hasn’t been released to that version of the game either.

Meanwhile, “Minecraft: Playstation 4 Edition”, “PS Vita Edition” and “Xbox One Edition” are still in development at 4J Studios. With the release of Patch 1.05 and TU15, the studio has now turned its attention to coding and preparing for release to those platforms.

No release date has been officially announced yet but Mojang’s Owen hill did confirm that the new versions of the game should be out sometime between now and the end of September. He also confirmed that cross-save compatibility and cross-buy, including DLC, is in the works as well.
