The Next Minecraft Biome is Coming Soon: a Cherry Blossom Forest!

Minecraft’s Going Pink for Valentine’s Day!

Minecraft is approaching its 1.2.0 update, and Mojang has a surprise in store. They just revealed that the update will also come with a whole new biome, filled with cherry blossom trees!

This beautiful biome is filled with cherry blossom trees“, says Mojang, “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.

But of course, the highlight of a biome like this comes from that iconic color. Minecraft could really use more pink!

These beautiful new trees fill the horizon with a stunning shade of pink,” Mojang says. “Of course these new trees can also be broken down and crafted into a full wood-set, including the newly introduced hanging signs and cherry tree saplings to grow more of the lovely pink trees.

All the wood is a wonderful pink shade, because of course it is. You can read more about the update here, on Mojang’s official site. If you want images of just how pink everything is, that’s the place to go!

And obviously, new trees means new wood. New logs, planks, doors, trapdoors, the works. What sort of Minecraft creations will you be making with this new palette update? Got any special priorities?
