Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition will launch on Xbox Live Arcade on 9 May, the fourth and final game in Microsoft's Spring 'Arcade Next' promotion, which kicks off on 18 April with the highly anticipated Trials Evolution.

"Also, starting in April, all new Xbox LIVE Arcade games (like these) will include up to 400 Gamerscore, with up to 30 Achievements available to unlock," Microsoft has confirmed.

Bloodforge will drop on 25 April, while Fable Heroes will launch on 2 May - for 1200 and 800 MSP respectively. Trials Evolution is also 1200 MSP, but Minecraft is the most expensive of the lot by some margin - 1600 MSP, or around £13.
