We have further good news to bring to Minecraft Pocket Edition players now. Mojang has revealed that the forthcoming Minecraft PE 0.10.0 will finally bring player skins to the game.
If you have been playing the game, you’ll know that this has been a big request from the community and a great sign from Mojang that they fully support the mobile versions of Minecraft just as much as PC.
Player skins essentially mean that Minecraft PE players will have the option of customising their character for the first time, i.e., choosing a difference appearance for Steve which most of you will agree becomes boring after a while.

Minecraft PE 0.10.0 is coming though and if we go by Mojang’s recent release strategy it could arrive very soon. We know that Minecraft PE update 0.9.5 is coming this week but after that we may see Mojang skip forward to 0.10.0 to deliver player skins.
Mojang knows that this is the feature that everyone wants and it is set to change Minecraft PE in a big way once players are able to customize their character however they want.
Give us your reaction to this fantastic piece of news. How hyped are you on a scale of 1-10 on the prospect of changing your character’s appearance on mobile versions?
