Despicable Me: Minion Rush for Windows Phone updated with new minions and more

In March, Gameloft announced that the Windows Phone and Windows 8.1 versions of its popular endless runner game Despicable Me: Minion Rush would no longer be updated. However, as we reported in May in our overview of Gameloft's future plans, the company decided to change its mind and keep updating the game after all. Today, Despicable Me: Minion Rush was indeed updated for Windows Phone, adding in new minions and more.

Here's what's new in the update:

  • Choose between Dave, Carl or Jerry to run with in Minion Park and Eduardo's House! Hop on a skateboard, do tricks with a BMX or try the high-flyin' mini-game!
  • 2 new environments: Minion Park and Eduardo's House
  • 2 new Minions: Carl and Jerry
  • 3 new mini-games: Skateboard, BMX and Minion Glider

The Windows 8.1 version of the game has yet to be updated with these new additions as of this writing, but we will update this post when that happens.

Thanks to Pratham and wayn1ak for the tips!

We originally posted this story stating this update included Xbox Live support when it fact it had been added in a previous update. We regret the error.
