Charlie loves her video games as much as she loves dumb, charming JRPG protagonists: probably way too much. You can often catch her spending too much time being emotional over LGBT stories in games. She also thinks Yakuza 6 is the best one.
Augmented reality has popped up quite a bit in recent years of mobile gaming. There was Pokémon , most recently Harry Potter, and now popular title Minecraft seems it’ll be getting its turn. Minecraft Earth was announced over the weekend and looks to be in a similar vein of these other AR titles. This move seems calculated and expected, with the cutesy world of Minecraft seeming like a well made fit for Augmented Reality.
The announcement came with an adorable live action trailer that highlights just some of the ways players may be using the game when it releases. The trailer itself proves that Minecraft Earth may actually be a mobile title gamers will want to keep an eye on this year.
Minecraft Earth promises to have a fair few features in store, with an emphasis on collecting, exploring, collaborating and surviving. Outside of the trailer and information listed on Minecraft’s site (listed below), specifics still seem a bit vague of what players will find themselves doing.
Minecraft has recently celebrated it’s 10th(!) Anniversary and a decision like this felt due, especially with advances made with AR technology. This announcement proves Minecraft isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Whether Minecraft and Mojang are able to pull this off is another question that is yet to be answered due to the unslated official release. However, curious audiences can now sign up for a soon to be released beta and soon be seeing those creepy creepers in everyday life!
