New lunar year Minecraft event

Mojang has created a new adventure to help Minecrafters enjoy the ongoing Year of the Tiger.

Next Studio created The Legend of Nezha to commemorate the Lunar New Year celebrations in 2022.

According to Chinese folklore Nezha is a deity called the Third Lotus Prince. He protects mortals. His roots can be traced back both to Hindu and Buddhist traditions.

This map celebrates Nezha’s story and allows players to play as him, defeating villainous foes like the Dragon King or Stone Queen. Plenty of minecraft servers are having their own take on their Lunar new year event.

How to play The Legend of Nezha on Minecraft

To enjoy The Legend of Nezha’s mythical sprawling maps, players will need to have the most current version of Minecraft: Bedrock Edition. Compatible editions of Bedrock include the Windows 10 edition, console versions, and those available on Android and iOS. These platforms allow players to access the marketplace to download The Legend of Nezha.

Java Edition users may have to wait until the map becomes available on sites like Planet Minecraft or Minecraft Maps in order to be able to use it.

Players on Bedrock Edition have the option to access the map from their main menu by opening the marketplace. Players can search for the name of the map if The Legend of Nezha doesn't appear on the main page or in any of the most popular categories. Players can click on the map to go to the store page once they've found it. All players have to do now is click the download button. The Legend of Nezha is now available for world creation after the download has been completed.

There's nothing to be concerned about if players are unable to download the map immediately. The Legend of Nezha is available for one year, starting February 1, 2022 and ending February 8, 2023.

Mojang also announced that they will offer free character creator products until February 8, 2022 at 10:00 PST. To commemorate the Year of the Tiger, these items include a mask and sweater featuring tigers. This free content is a great way for you to celebrate the Lunar New Year as well as learn more about the legends of eastern folklore.
