New Minecraft XBLA update brings Endermen, hunger gauge, and more

More details have surfaced about the 1.8.2 update for Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition.

Endermen — creatures that steal blocks and were introduced on PC in update 1.8 — will now be available in this version, as well. So will silverfish, which jump out of blocks as you're chipping away at them.

The hunger gauge, also coming in the update, adds importance to the feature. Your health will regenerate when it's full even in normal play, but when it's low, your stamina will suffer. If it's completely empty, you'll start to die.

The update will also introduce Creative Mode and Flat Worlds to the version, but expect to wait "weeks" before it's ready (according to 4J Studios).
