Iconic DC Thomson comic characters Dennis the Menace and Gnasher have launched in the worldwide smash hit Minecraft.
Players will be able to add The Beano’s most mischievous characters to PC versions of the game from Monday.
The Dennis and Gnasher Minecraft modification (mod) was developed in a partnership between The Beano and Frima Studios.
It includes all of Dennis’ best pranks: catapults, rotten tomatoes, stink bombs and booby-trapped trumping cakes. Players can also craft a sausage to summon Gnasher, but will need to watch out for ‘softy’ Walter and his stinky underpants.
Mark Cotton, who 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.
Frima Studio CEO Steve Couture added: “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.”
