A New Mob Approaches

Turtles are paddling into Minecraft!

It’s the season for giving and we hope each and every one of you is enjoying a fun festive holiday with family and friends - who, more importantly, got you some great stuff! Oh, you just got coal? Again? For the tenth year in a row? Huh. Sorry to hear that.

Wait, I know! Have a gift from us - a new mob announcement! Please welcome the latest addition to the Minecraft ecosphere: coal! I mean, turtles!

These fine-flippered-fellows will be paddling into Minecraft very soon. Then, they’ll make their nests on shorelines throughout various biomes and their young will scamper down to the water.

These turtle textures will likely change before we let them loose in Minecraft in 2018, along with the rest of the Update Aquatic. Until then, enjoy this first sneak peek, and happy holidays from everyone at Mojang!
