There's a new Pixar movie! But it's pretending to be a very old Pixar movie! Lightyear is a sort of Toy Story prequel, you see — it's the "real life" movie that Buzz Lightyear would be based off. So, even though it's a 2022 movie, it's pretending to be a space movie from the '70s or '80s, right? Yeah.
Anyway! As part of the movie's launch, it's coming to Minecraft, which is a real game that is modern and not from the 20th century.
The DLC comes with a story:
In the Lightyear DLC, you get to play through Buzz’s origin story and help him navigate an alien planet after an unfortunate crash landing. You can play through five missions as this Academy-trained hero, including a hostile jungle, a swamp, and a mine, as well as various alien settlements. Throughout each mission, you have to navigate the terrain while fighting enemies and several bosses using various gadgets. Between missions, you get to fly different aircraft and must avoid obstacles to safely get to your next objective. Even though “safely” is a very relative term on an inhospitable alien planet.
It's not available on the Nintendo Switch just yet, but Mojang assure us it will be available "soon".
