Minecraft Dungeons is now available to buy on the PlayStation Store. And the spin-off is quite reasonably priced. But the boat is still out on whether the series can lend itself to such a fork in the road, and if it can, whether the game has the capacity to topple its inspiration. However, that means very little to fans who can now enjoy their beloved Minecraft in a different guise.
However, Mojang must be bricking it!
This news has taken its time. Other platforms have had access to the game before us on the PlayStation. But then again, different approval schemes do take their own times – so that’s probably why.
Even more strange are its comparisons to the Diablo series. But so far reviews elsewhere seem to play this down as it being a bit of a weakness – however, that is comparing this lite dungeon crawler to the main player in the genre, so it’s to be expected I think. Instead, we must view this likeness as a more of an inspiration. Something the team have picked up, ran with and treated to a Minecraft makeover.
You know, made it their own.
It is addictive, though, in its own little way. And seems to have pleased fans on other platforms. Therefore, as it is the same build here, I expect Playstation gamers to be equally as happy. And if you’re interested, you can buy Minecraft Dungeons now for £15.99 or pay £24.99 for the Hero Edition. Just make sure to let us know what you think!
