Mojang Studios and Blackbird Interactive have confirmed a release date for their new action-strategy game Minecraft Legends on Nintendo Switch.
The game will tell the legend of the Overworld once uniting against an invasion by the ravenous piglins who threaten to corrupt it. According to this legend, you are the only one that can bring together the Overworld’s mobs to help them defend their home.
These events are “neither fact nor fiction,” as they are simply part of a tale that has been passed down from villager to villager. There are no records or evidence that the great hero raised their banner to save the Overworld, only that the powerful legend has remained.
With strategy elements at its core, the game’s mechanics take inspiration from “the immersion of action games.” Exploring in third-person perspective, on your adventures you will be challenged to defend peaceful settlements and fight hordes of piglins to stop the spread of their Nether corruption.
Minecraft Legends will release digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 18th April 2023.
