Cherry Blossom Biome coming to Minecraft 1.20
Cherry blossom trees take the Overworld by storm!
Are you ready for Minecraft 1.20 to bring a rare, and above all PINK, biome to the Overworld!? You better be, because the cherry blossom biome will be coming soon to Java snapshots and Bedrock betas and previews. This marks the final reveal in our Minecraft 1.20 feature list! Keep sending us your amazing feedback so that we can continue to craft all the features into their final forms.
This beautiful biome is filled with cherry blossom trees that bring a unique look to the horizon as their crowns are big and flat, like fluffy pink clouds. It’s no wonder that three adorable mobs, pigs, sheep, and bees, are drawn to them and will spawn in this biome.
The cherry tree can be broken down into a full wood-set as well as crafted into the new hanging sign that is also coming in Minecraft 1.20! You can also find cherry tree saplings in the biome, so you can plant them wherever you want.
Maybe it was the beauty of the cherry blossom trees, or maybe it’s because today is Valentine’s Day, but something drew me to the Romance section of the secret library. I found a bag of heart-shaped cookies (expiration dates are just a suggestion, right?), a bundle of Valentines with return to sender marked on them, and a stack of video cassettes. But behind this treasure trove, I found a heart-shaped box.
Inside the box was pink construction paper, a pair of scissors, and some glitter glue. In other words – a V-Day Survival Kit. I am going to spend the rest of the day cutting out blocky cherry blossoms that I can hand out to my imaginary Valentine. There’s enough love to go around, so why don’t you grab whatever material you prefer and make your own cherry blossom Valentine!
Soon you will be able to frolic in this new biome, and also also dig into archeology and get to know the sniffer. All of these features are in their early stages, so please send us your feedback and report any bugs. Check out the instructions on how to play Java snapshots and Bedrock betas & previews so you’re ready to explore!
