Now available in Europe and Japan, with the North American version out later today, Minecraft update 1.52 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita adds seven new Trophies, support for the Mini Game Heroes Skin Pack, and more.

The Mini Game Heroes Skin Pack costs £1.69 and the description says, “Swoop round Glide’s tightest tracks in lithe llama-suit, cushion Tumble-based fumbles with fluffy cat pads, or don your Guardian get-up to bolster both your Battle ranking and your fashion game.” Today also sees the release of the Glide Giants Track Pack, which is £2.49 and propels “you through massive monoliths in Mobs, twisting tubes in Body, and freakish furniture in Shrunk.”

Alleviating any fears that Minecraft on PlayStation won’t be supported after the Better Together update arrives on other platforms, Mojang said, “Console Edition will still be getting updated with new features, and those platforms which won’t support the Better Together Update will continue getting updates even after it lands.”

Here’s the full list of 1.52 patch notes on all three PlayStation platforms:
