As Microsoft keeps the Minecraft money train rolling, there are always tie-ins and endorsements around the corner. In the latest deal, Minecraft has extended a partnership with Japanese apparel brand UNIQLO.
Mojang and the clothes company are evolving their collaboration to bring Minecraft x UNIQLO Skins Vol 2. According to a blog post, the new skins will be available from March 12 in China and March 15 globally.
The idea here is players can dress their Minecraft characters in UNIQLO clothes:
“Wear your favorite Uniqlo x Minecraft apparel as you mine, craft, explore, or virtually hang out with friends. There are 15 skins in this free pack, so you can avoid the so-called faux pas of wearing the same outfit as someone else in your group.”
It's worth noting that the skins pack is completely free and is available from the Minecraft Marketplace.
“But it doesn't stop at the Overworld, oh no. There's a new UT collection coming out for kids, including new Minecraft T-shirt and Steteco short designs. We're also dropping new adult T-shirts, hoodies, and tote bags that you can customize with your favorite Minecraft characters and scenes at Uniqlo UTme!”

It has been a typically busy year in the world of Minecraft. Perhaps the biggest news is Microsoft's decision to shutter Minecraft Earth. This was an augmented reality version of Minecraft. During the height of Pokémon GO popularity, AR gaming was seen as the future.
However, Minecraft Earth never took off. Microsoft says Minecraft Earth will be discontinued. The game's team made the announcement in February, saying the title will continue to work until June 30, 2021. While that sucks for users, it is hardly a major surprise.
