Microsoft has released an update for Minecraft Pocket Edition on Windows Phone. Version 0.11.2 adds a bunch of new improvements, everything from two-man boats and new mobs to purchasable skin packs.

Don't wish to play as Steve? Change up the game by loading in your own skin, choose from the catalogue of free skins or purchase a pack for 99c each. Microsoft has also added boats, fishing, more languages, map configurations, new mobs, items, easy switching between creative and survival, and much more.

Here's a list of highlights from the store listing:

  • Multiple language support
  • Boats with space for two! Take your pet for a pleasant ride.
  • You can also throw stuff from the boats, like snowballs and eggs
  • Fishing
  • Squids
  • Spider jockeys
  • Cave Spiders
  • Bats
  • Adorable baby zombies
  • Weird chicken jockeys
  • Clownfishes are now edible
  • A fancy new World Edit screen so you can rename worlds, change game mode and do other things
  • Creative players can no longer be set on fire phew
  • We've stopped cheeky chickens from walking on water
  • Animals can no longer breed without touching each other ooh err
  • Drinking milk now removes mob effects
  • Ridiculous amounts of bug fixes
  • Loads more cool things that you should discover for yourself
