Minecraft Update 1.6 To Add Grass, Shrooms And More -- Planned For This Week

The release date for the 360 version of indie-game Minecraft has been revealed. You'll be punching trees and fighting skeletons on May 9.

While the gameplay of Minecraft will be very similar to the PC version, the most trumpeted innovation of the 360 Minecraft is in the documentation. Basically, there is some. The devs say they've worked hard to include a comprehensive tutorial as well as synthesizing the volumes of information about the game from the web to the console.

According to Microsoft:

"The Xbox LIVE Arcade version of the game features an innovative new crafting interface, natural controller movements, a full Tutorial mode to teach the basics and for the first time in “Minecraft,” split-screen multiplayer as well as over Xbox LIVE"

I can't wait to give it a try on May 9.
