- Minecraft: Story Mode was revealed on December 18, 2014. The first trailer came out July 4, 2015 at MineCon.
- This game is an interpretation of the Minecraft world, and not a story for it. It is also not the rumored Minecraft 2 which was a joke by Mojang.
- Jesse and Reuben riding a minecart in the Nether and flying near the Ghast in Episode 1 is a reference to the movie E.T.
- In episode 1, when Jesse says “Jackpot,” his voice gets glitched.
- In November 2018, a simplified version of Minecraft: Story Mode was added to Netflix, mostly featuring cinematic sequences from the game. It also includes limited choices, allowing the viewer to influence certain elements of the story.
