Minecraft Heading to XBLA With Split-Screen But No Launch Day Kinect

It's been in the XBLA pipeline for quite some time, but rest assured that Minecraft is coming, and it'll apparently be supported alongside the PC version with developer 4J Studios promising constant updates for the XBLA iteration of the game.
Split-screen is also one of the game features that you'll be able to access in the XBLA version of Minecraft, as revealed during the Microsoft Spring Showcase this week, Kotaku reports. That means you'll be able to play with friends from the comfort of your couch, but you'll have to wait for Kinect functionality to be patched in at a later date, Eurogamer has discovered.
So, while there won't be Kinect support immediately upon Minecraft's launch, at least split-screen multiplayer will help ease the pain. Minecraft is coming to XBLA in Q2 2012. Can we have a proper release date, please?
