As rumoured earlier this week, Microsoft has revealed an action-strategy Minecraft spin-off, and it's called Minecraft Legends. Check out the trailer above, as featured in the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase 2022.

The game is scheduled for a 2023 release on Xbox consoles and PC, and the PlayStation and all-important Nintendo Switch logos featured at the end of the trailer, too, so Legends will be present on all major platforms.
