The Xbox Live Arcade port of Minecraft will be available in the northern hemisphere's spring (our autumn) in 2012 instead of winter as originally planned, according to Microsoft Game Studios.
The console port will be available to play at the inaugural MineCon in Las Vegas this year, and Mojang report that development is going to plan.
"Minecraft for Xbox 360 is currently in heavy development and we are very happy with the progress," read a post on Mojang's official site.
"[Game designer]Daniel is working tightly with the 4J team to coordinate Notch's design decisions. We want to keep the core experience of the original PC version intact, while ensuring the game fits its new platform."
At this year's E3, Microsoft announced that Minecraft would be coming to XBLA with a complete user interface redesign to ensure that it works for the Xbox 360 controller. The 360 port is being made by 4J Studios, who were also behind the Xbox Live versions of Banjo Kazooie and Perfect Dark.
