"Come one, come all to the most wholesome celebration in the Overworld, featuring a range of activities for everyone! Take on the all-new Tower multiplayer, explore the jungle level Treetop Tangle, or embrace the look of your favorite friendly mob. The faire is full of surprises ‚Äď who will you bring to the party?"

"A festival has arrived, and with it, new trinkets and companions! Enjoy the Fauna Faire to the fullest with the Minecraft Dungeons Adventure Pass. Get access to even more festive features with an additional reward track brimming with colorful skins, flairs, capes, pets, and more!"


Original article [Sun 16th Oct, 2022 07:00 BST]: During the Minecraft Dungeons segment at Minecraft Live 2022, Mojang announced it would be releasing Season 3 of the action-RPG dungeon-crawling adventure officially titled the Fauna Faire. It's apparently "all about pets" - and will feature a variety of new animal mobs such as otters, penguins, and even hedgehogs.

The "whole season will revolve pets" with unlocks including animal-themed cosmetics and even emotes. There's also a new Jungle biome mission "Tree Top Tangle", which will be available for free.

A new merchant known as the Enhantsmith will also move into the camp in this next update - allowing you to re-roll properties on your favourite pieces of gear.

And last but not least is the expansion of "The Tower". Fauna Faire's new "Tower multiplayer mode" supports up to four players, requiring players to work together to overcome threats and ascend to the top. The game will also adapt in difficulty when players join or drop out.

In addition to this, a Spooky Fall event is also on the way to Minecraft Dungeons. This event will feature limited-time rewards and runs from October 26th through to November 9th.
