Dennis Publishing has launched Minecraft World, a new monthly print magazine based on the popular cross-platform computer game.
Aimed at 7-11 year olds, Minecraft World magazine is an unofficial guide to the Minecraft game.
Each issue features news on what’s happening within the Minecraft community, tips on achieving various goals, tutorials, puzzles, expert advice and a free covermount gift.
Dennis has signed a deal with Minecraft creator Mojang to use certain trademark images and intellectual property to enhance the magazine.
Dharmesh Mistry, Publisher, said: “Minecraft is a truly wonderful game that taps into the player’s imagination, letting them create their own experience and it has seen phenomenal success across the globe, increasingly so on mobile devices.
“There was a real gap in the market for a quality print magazine that could help children develop their game strategy.”
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 is on sale at WH Smith, ASDA, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons.
