Its about time Minecraft got an actual printed magazine in production. Dennis Publishing, the 6th largest consumer magazine publisher in the UK has announced they have the world’s first unofficial Minecraft magazine, Minecraft World, for sale now for around £3.99 an issue. Each magazine comes with tips, puzzles, tutorials, pics, news and more.
When you think about it, you don’t really need a magazine when you have the latest updated news and more right here on Gearcraft.us updated daily, but we get it, when you’re not around any internet then what are you gonna do?! Have your handy magazine. I know when I was in school I used to doodle whatever video game characters were on the cover of the latest video game mag.

Dennis Publishing’s Dharmesh Mistry, says the magazine “could help children develop their game strategy.” Also the magazine will include official Mojang licensed images and art to enhance the experience.
The 52-page children’s magazine launches with an initial launch print run of 45,000 and a covermount gift: a 101 Minecraft Secrets Guide. Minecraft World is priced at £3.99 and has already been snapped up by WH Smith, ASDA, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons and all good independent newsagents.
