Dennis the Menace and Gnasher make debut in Minecraft PC game
From Monday, players will be able to add The Beano comic characters to PC versions of the game.
The Beano's most mischievous characters will make their debut in Minecraft.
From Monday, players will be able to add Dennis the Menace and Gnasher to PC versions of the game.
It includes all of Dennis’ best pranks like catapults, rotten tomatoes, stink bombs and booby-trapped trumping cakes.
Players can also craft a sausage to summon Gnasher, but they will need to watch out for "softy" Walter and his stinky underpants.
The Dennis and Gnasher Minecraft mod was developed in a partnership between The Beano and Frima Studios.
Mark Cotton, who had led the digital expansion of The Beano said: “The Beano has always been about great storytelling, imagination and creativity. Minecraft is a perfect match for us, providing an amazing sandbox for kids to take our characters, tell their own stories, prank their friends and build out Beanotown.”
The Minecraft mod follows an announcement earlier this year of development plans for The Beano that see Dennis and Gnasher expand in to the digital market.
The brand plans to continue the extension of Dennis and Gnasher in Minecraft. Mr Cotton added: “We’d love to expand the pranks and incorporate other Beano characters.
“We were lucky to have a group of Beano fans helping us test this first adventure into Minecraft and we would love to get feedback on how we can continue bringing Beanotown to life!”
Frima Studio CEO Steve Couture said: “We are delighted to be partnering with The Beano in its extension into Minecraft and gaming. It’s a privilege to be part of the digital expansion of such an iconic brand.”
