Minecraft Adds Witches And Bats (And Batman)

Well, I guess the Batman thing isn't really a Mojang thing, but still, how cool is the above screenshot. With Halloween on the way, it looks as though Minecraft is about to get a suitably terrifying update. An update that feature Witches (that you can set on fire, of course) and Bats!

The Witch is aggressive and has a magical nose that wiggles — which brings to mind that crazy old show Bewitched! She can attack you with splashes of potion. The bats? They sleep during the day and spawn in dark caves.

The Witch will apparently remain in the Minecraft universe after Halloween.

There's a whole heap of detail on the new update on this superbly well researched Reddit post. If you're looking for more info, best to head over there.

    Sounds really good but will it be in the Minecraft pocket edition too?

    "The big bad pig will haunt you and eat you", said the bigbadpig

    That's all very nice, but do the witches weigh the same as a duck? If not, they can't be real witches.

      Only way to test is to push them off a cliff. If they die then no, if they do then they will have to report back to us so we can burn them alive.
