MINECRAFT TOYS


MINECRAFT


Cashing in on a popular games brand isn’t just about stocking the game anymore. MCV looks at the merchandise available for one of the hottest gaming licences around: Minecraft


IS THERE anyone out there who still hasn’t heard of Minecraft by now? Markus ‘Notch’ Persson’s


creation started life back in 2009 as an indie sandbox PC title that remained in development for a further two years before its full release. Since then it has launched on


just about every platform on the planet, and PS4, Xbox One and Vita Editions are in the works and due out in August.


Minecraft has now topped 35m copies sold. But it’s not just the games that consumers are buying by the bucket load.

As a franchise it has now topped 35m copies sold across all of these platforms and boasts over 100m registered users. So it’s safe to say that Minecraft has become somewhat of a sensation. But it’s not just the game itself


that consumers are buying by the bucket load, either. Books. Posters. Toys. Foam weaponry. LEGO – and that’s just getting started. If you can name it then there’s probably a Minecraft branded version of it out there.
