If you've been pecking around with Minecraft: Pocket Edition these past few years, you've probably noticed one major feature has been missing: co-op play. Ok, so there are a lot of features missing from Minecraft mobile when compared to the desktop or Xbox 360 versions, but co-op is a key component to building things like a 1-to-1 replica of old Rome or a rollercoaster ride inspired by the Beetlejuice cartoon. Every grand project needs willing slave workers. Just ask the ancient Egyptians!

We enjoy distinguishing our co-op partners online by the myriad of skins that have been released since the game first came out for the Xbox 360.
