Today is Valentine's day, and Mojang announced a rather fitting new feature coming to Minecraft's yet-unnamed major update 1.20.
Today's announcement shares that a new biome is coming, the Cherry Blossom biome. Like previously-revealed features slated for 1.20, it'll soon be available in a new snapshot for the Java edition and in a beta for the Bedrock edition of the game.
Apparently, this is the last element to be announced for 1.20, which means that the feature list is now complete.
Not only do we get a super-cute environment added to the game, but it also comes with its full wood set that is also compatible with the new hanging signs coming in the update. The only issue? No one told Mojang that cherry wood actually isn't pink, but I suppose they may have made a concession in terms of realism for the sake of cuteness.
You can check out what the set and the biome look like in this short video. This is the latest of a series of reveals about the update including the new Archaeology feature announced a few days ago and the Sniffer mob from yesterday.
If you're not familiar with Minecraft, it's a massively-popular sandbox game currently published by Microsoft following its acquisition of Mojang on pretty literally every platform with a chip inside. I'd list them for you, but I've honestly lost count. The latest major patch, The Wild Update, was released a few months ago, and we're still waiting for additional information on 1.20, which was introduced in October at Minecraft Live.
We're also waiting for its younger brother, Minecraft Legends, which isn't a sandbox game. Yet, it brings back the world, the characters, and the aesthetic for a charming action real-time-strategy game. It's coming for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC on April 18, 2023. Of course, it'll also be included on Game Pass.
