Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition due for Title Update 8 ‘this month’ (full patch notes)

Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition is due to receive Title Update 8 any day now. Developer 4J Studios is hoping to have it out sometime this month (so, within the next three days), but it says that this all depends on Xbox Live’s certification process (so this could mean sometime in February instead).

For fans of the most popular Xbox Live Arcade game of all time, 4J Studios has laid out the changes and additions coming in TU8 (below). Note that the Ender Dragon (considered the final boss of the game) has been postponed to Title Update 9 so that 4J can focus on patching a lot of the issues introduced in Title Update 7.
