Minecraft Dungeons "Jungle Awakens" DLC coming in July 2020, followed by Creeping Winter later this year

More to explore this year

Minecraft Dungeons just launched a few days back, and Mojang is already revealing new details about DLC. We now know that the Jungle Awakens pack is coming in July 2020, followed by the Creeping Winter pack later this year. Check out all the official details below.

You probably already know that we’re currently working on new content for Minecraft Dungeons, especially if you’ve purchased the Hero Edition. However, what you might not know is that the first of the two planned DLCs – Jungle Awakens – is coming in July! In this adventure, you’ll enter a distant, dangerous jungle to fight a mysterious power in three new missions. To defeat the terrors hidden among the vines, you’ll have new weapons, armor, and artifacts at your disposal.

Once you’ve had enough of the jungle heat, you’ll explore some frozen peaks in Creeping Winter! This second addition to Minecraft Dungeons will be coming later this year, so keep an eye on this blog and our socials for future sneak peeks!

I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling really good about getting the Hero Edition right now – and it’s not just because of the baby chicken that comes with it. Have you seen how cute it is though?

Did you think that was it? Far from it! ! The team is also working on adding cross-platform play functionality and cool new free content for Minecraft Dungeons that everyone will receive, regardless of edition! We’ll come back with more details in the coming weeks. In the meantime, equip your favorite weapon and show that Arch-Illager who’s boss! Get it? I’ll see myself out.

Strawberry Vinegar - more gameplay

That is, until a self-proclaimed demon from the deepest, darkest pits of Hell suddenly appears in Rie's kitchen and steals a tray of cookies. What will happen between these two young girls? Will friendship blossom between them, or perhaps something more?

Throwback Challenge 2020 Special Research

Congratulations to Trainers who completed all four Timed Research lines! You’ve earned access to the Throwback Challenge Champion 2020 Special Research. Join Professor Willow as you rediscover Pokémon originally found in the Unova region and meet Pokémon originally discovered in the Galar region as they make their Pokémon GO debut. Complete all four sets of tasks in this Special Research to earn five Rare Candies; reward encounters with Galarian Meowth, Galarian Stunfisk, and Genesect; and Professor Willow’s glasses as an exclusive avatar item! Unlike the previous sets of Timed Research, this Special Research isn’t time-limited and can be unlocked and completed at any time.

Don’t worry if you couldn’t complete all Timed Research lines—you’ll be able to purchase a ticket for the Throwback Challenge Celebration 2020 Special Research in the shop, which will grant you the same tasks and rewards as the Throwback Challenge Champion 2020 Special Research. If you already have access to the Throwback Challenge Champion 2020 Special Research and purchase a ticket for the Throwback Challenge Celebration 2020 Special Research in the shop, you’ll receive a version of the Throwback Challenge Celebration 2020 Special Research with the following changes: each time you would’ve earned a reward encounter with a Pokémon, you instead will earn 10 Candies for that specific Pokémon, and you’ll earn Stardust instead of Professor Willow’s glasses.

All Trainers can still enjoy an event taking place during the same time period. In this event, Galarian Stunfisk will be appearing in the wild, and you can hatch Galarian Meowth, Galarian Zigzagoon, Galarian Darumaka, and Galarian Stunfisk from 7 km Eggs. Plus, try evolving Galarian Meowth, Galarian Zigzagoon, and Galarian Darumaka!

Nintendo shares an Animal Crossing: New Horizons-themed crossword puzzle

A quick bit of fun

Looking for something to do when you're not playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons? How about you grab a pen/pencil and have at this Animal Crossing: New Horizons crossword puzzle? It was put together by Nintendo themselves, and I'm pretty sure they know a thing or two about the game. It's not anywhere near the legendary NY Times crossword puzzles, but it should still provide some fun.
