Minecraft: Pocket Edition ($6.99) sure has come a long way in the 4 years since its initial release. Some might say there’s still a long ways to go before it’s up to par with its desktop counterpart, and some might also say it’s taken too long to get to where we are today with the mobile version. Those are both very good points, but I still think the teams at Mojang and Microsoft should be commended for the extra attention they’ve been paying to Minecraft: Pocket Edition throughout 2015. The Pocket Edition team has created a brand new trailer showcasing all those nifty new editions that have made it into the game this year.
If you visit this blog post on Microsoft’s website, you can see all of this year’s additions listed out in full, and it’s really quite impressive. Minecraft: Pocket Edition has grown so much since our original review back in 2011 that it caused us to do something we don’t normally do when we ran a brand new review for the game at the beginning of October. And even still that new review feels slightly outdated as one of the most significant additions to the game, Redstone, arrived in November. It’s hard to keep up!
We’ll be watching closely to see where Minecraft: Pocket Edition heads in 2016 and beyond, but one thing’s for sure, it made its biggest strides to date in 2015 and shows no signs of slowing down.
