Minecraft: Pocket Edition, the mobile version of the game available through the iTunes App Store and Google Play, will get its biggest update to date on Thursday, July 10.
Version 0.9.0 will bring the mobile version closer to its PC counterpart by adding infinite worlds, caves, many new blocks and items including Monster Eggs and huge mushroom blocks, wolf pets, new mobs, new biomes including mesas, jungles, swamps and extreme hills, and much more. You can find a detailed list of the new addition on Mojang’s website.
In late April, we learned that Minecraft PC sold 15 million, but the mobile version is significantly more popular. Earlier in April, Jens Bergensten of the Mojang’s mobile team revealed that Pocket Edition sold over 21 million copies.
On Xbox 360, Minecraft sold more than 12 million copies and on PlayStation 3 it sold a million copies in just a little over a month after its release. Xbox One and Playstation 4 versions of the game are coming in August.
Mojang's Patrick Geuder Saga, who heads up data analysis at Mojang, recently revealed that the company sold almost 54 million copies of Minecraft across all platforms, but did not share details regarding how the 54 million figure breaks down between platforms.
