Dennis the Menace pulls pranks in Minecraft

Dennis The Mance Minecraft Mod

Beano stalwart joins the Minecraft world in an official mod for the PC version

A new mod for Minecraft on PC has been released that brings Dennis the Menace into the game.

Thanks to a collaboration between Beano publisher DC Thomson and a group of Canadian devs, Minecraft players will be able to play as Dennis and use a selection of prank items. Included are "trumping prank cakes, stink bombs, catapults, rotten tomatoes, stinky underpants and a whole bunch more".

Dennis will also be able to use a sausage to summon his canine side-kick Gnasher and chase off his sworn enemy Walter, the ‘Prince of Softies’.

Talking to The Guardian, DC Thomson's Mark Cotton noted: “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,”

Cotton also hinted that more Beano-themed content could be incoming saying: “We'd love to expand the pranks and incorporate other Beano characters."
