Microsoft Corp. this week said 4J Studios’ Minecraft will be released to the Xbox One Sept. 5.

The title will include four-player split-screen local multiplayer and eight player online multiplayer functionality.

It will be sold at $19.99. Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition owners can upgrade to the Xbox One SKU at $4.99.

Developed by 4J Studios, Minecraft is a translation of the sandbox simulation title.

It includes a new training mode that guides new users into the crafting process. In addition, a new console-friendly crafting interface allow users to see exactly which materials are needed to craft each item.

In the title, users can craft and build items by chopping world items like trees, rocks, and sand to build an array of tools, fuel, and materials. Tools can be used to craft materials faster, fuel can heat items to form new product or food from the furnace, and materials can be used to build a shelter to keep safe from monsters.
