The world of Minecraft: Legends was carefully constructed using a variety of techniques to keep the Minecraft feel but also make it unique. Each mountain, tree, and pixel you see was carefully crafted, then combined through procedural generation and keyframe. A lot of the inspiration for this title came from the real world, leading to flocks of birds, falling leaves, and gusts of wind to be found throughout.

With Minecraft: Legends, the Nether stands at the forefront, with Piglins being the antagonist. This led to various designs for mobs to come together. This same love and heart went into the overworld mobs who make up your army. All in all, Minecraft: Legends looks like a delightful take on a Minecraft spin-off.
