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.

Here are some details on the game from the Youtube description:

Discover the mysteries of Minecraft Legends, our upcoming action strategy game. Explore a familiar yet mysterious land, full of diverse life, lush biomes, and rich resources. But this paradise is on the brink of destruction. The piglins have arrived – and they’re threatening to corrupt the Overworld. Inspire unexpected friends to form valuable alliances and lead them in strategic battles to protect their home. Take the fight to the piglins before their Nether corruption devours the Overworld!

No release date was revealed, but every game in the Xbox & Bethesda Showcase is scheduled to launch in "the next 12 months".
