Lego has given the green light to a set of the famous building bricks based on the world of the cult cyber-block game Minecraft.

The idea came from fan submission site Lego Cuusoo, where users can suggest new creation kits. If these submissions gather sufficient interest among the site's visitors, the Danish toy maker takes note and sometimes agrees to take the concept to retail.

After the Minecraft idea gathered over 10,000 supporters, Lego decided it was worth looking at and is now working on a version that "celebrates the best aspects of building with the Lego system and in Minecraft".

That's all we have on the matter so far, but the company promises more details soon. ®
