At the Minecon Earth show It is this month it was also announced that both the Super Duper Graphics update and multiplayer cross-play for Switch are delayed to 2018.
Check out the video below to learn more about the Minecraft Aquatic update which will be rolling out to the game during the spring months of 2018.
Hitch a ride on a bubble column or go exploring in long-lost shipwrecks on the ocean floor. Fend off sea monsters with your trident and then relax and hang out with some cheerful dolphins. The update splits the oceans into iomes, and each will have different types of fish, coral, and kelp. If you want to build an aquarium, you can catch fish with a bucket so you can place them elsewhere. The sea will hold secrets too, including treasure. These can be found in shipwrecks and around icebergs. Dolphins will swim towards treasure to guide you to the plunder.
The Update Aquatic also introduces a new weapon: the trident. It can be used for both melee and ranged attacks. You can throw it to spear an enemy, but doing so will have the item disappear. Enchanting the trident, however, has it return back to you after each use.
