This trailer show Nether Portals with enemies pouring out into the peaceful overworld, and some gameplay footage of the player pushing them back in mounted combat with allies in support.

Minecraft Legends Gameplay

From its Announcement Trailer, it looks like Minecraft Legends gameplay will be almost entirely made up of mounted combat from the player and strategic elements. We never see the player leave their trusty steed, and they’re also often leading a group of allies. 

This means that gameplay may feel more like Dynasty Warriors, Dragon Quest Builders, or Pikmin depending on the level of control players have over their accompanying allies. 

Minecraft Legends Nintendo Switch Trailer Reveals More

The latest new reveal for Minecraft Legends comes from a brand new trailer showcasing the game on Nintendo Switch. 

Within it, we see that building will be an option as the player puts up a small castle’s walls, and we also see that allies are commanded via targeting them in close proximity to each other. 

With more gameplay footage of sieging overrun castles, it seems that this will be a key aspect of gameplay as the player fights off the Nether invaders from the Overworld.
