Are you ready for a creeper to blow up in your neighborhood?
That's exactly what Microsoft is promising with its new tease for "Minecraft" as a "Pokémon Go"-like augmented reality game.
In a short teaser shared on Microsoft's Twitter account on Monday, an Android phone is used to demonstrate how someone might interact with "Minecraft" as an AR application:
The characteristic inventory menu from "Minecraft" sits along the bottom of the screen, but the rest of the screen is consumed by the world of "Minecraft."A very pixelated pig marches around in mud, and a few of the game's villagers show up to take a look.
There's little else to know at the moment, but it sounds like we'll hear more soon - a May 17 reveal is scheduled, right in time for the 10th anniversary of the game.
