Minecon Earth announcements include an aquatic update, a new mob, and more coming to Minecraft

Giant 'Minecraft' graphics upgrade delayed to 2018

Game developer Mojang has announced that graphics upgrade meant for "Minecraft" has been delayed to 2018.

Finally, the developers confirmed the Nintendo Switch will get a new version of the game with cross-platform multiplayer support.

Mojang did not provide a specific reason behind the delays. According to a recent press release, the "Better Together" update is created to unify the console, mobile and Windows 10 PC versions of the game under one single Minecraft edition, which will include infinite worlds, the community Marketplace and community servers.

Working with the ocean, building floating cities, and using the ocean water to your advantage are some of the ways Minecraft players can interact with the biome right now, but it was recently announced during the MineCon Earth that there's a lot more on the way.

The new structures, including shipwrecks and icebergs, will hide treasure, and dolphins will leap from the sea and guide you to that treasure, which is nice of them.

The Aquatic Update will roll out next year.

The Super Duper Graphics Pack and Switch cross-play for Minecraft have been delayed until 2018. The title will be getting the likes of dolphins, coral, explorable shipwrecks, and more types of fish, while Minecraft will also get improved water physics. Although there is no official release date yet, more information is expected in the coming months. The update will allow Nintendo Switch players to play with players who play on PC or Xbox One.
