    GUYS LISTEN UP. Title Update 9 is in Cert Testing. Some of you may or may not know what that is. What it means is that 4j Studios is done with the update and has given it to Microsoft. 4J has to pay money to Microsoft to do their own testing in order to make sure there aren’t any problems with it. If there were problems with it, they would send it back to 4J and have them fix it, then 4J would have to pay again and send it back over to Microsoft. Cert Testing takes a maximum of 10 days, meaning it could come out any time from Thursday-next week. Hope this helps!!!

    • http://www.facebook.com/owen.lynch.3597 Owen Lynch

      sometimes it could be out sooner if they find not a lot of bugs
      as if there are quite a few bugs it should be out by mid april
      IT MATTERS ON THE BUGS so far its gone quite well

      • http://twitter.com/Doky9889 Doky9889 | Luke

        Yea they found a lot of bugs in the 1.8 update and they took it out. should be out next week hopefully!

  • Me

    • http://www.facebook.com/owen.lynch.3597 Owen Lynch

    Added ‘The End’, with new layout, and new Enderdragon behaviour

  • Jack Ranson

    Guys calm down, we might here news about it today.

  • 4j studios

    Dem you cert test team for keeping the update all for yourself i want it tomorrow c’mon !!

  • zero four eight

    i heard it was coming out easter cause they are adding spawn eggs so i t would be right to release it on easter. see my point

  • Poop

    if you check the playXBLA twitter on one of their tweets it said “Changes, Additions, and Fixes in TU9 for Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition! Coming Soon!” this was on March 25th, 4jStudios announced that it was sent to microsoft Cert testing on March 23rd. This could mean it would most likely come out in beginning of April.

  • josh baird

  • http://twitter.com/EnderMando Armando Laredo

    Not sure if you guys have seen that 4J Studios tweeted that TU9 will be coming out this Friday, April 5th! :D
