Pocket Edition is 5 years old! Have a trailer for 1.0!
What a long way weve come! At its inception, Pocket Edition was little more than an experiment by mega-brained Mojang coder, Aron Nieminen. It was pretty bare bones - just the most minimal Minecrafty features in mobile form, hammered together in a mere three months.
As Aron says: It wasnt even supposed to have multiplayer at first, and the first internal version only had an ASCII renderer!
Its since grown into one of our most popular versions of Minecraft, with over 40 million players, who are now able to enjoy the rich features of redstone, join each other on Realms, and across platforms, race each other on pigback, wail on witches and - with the upcoming Ender Update - battle the ultimate boss: The Ender Dragon.
The Ender Update will bring the game version up to the big 1.0, in honour of introducing Minecrafts complete gameplay loop, as the devs like to say. But even though weve brought you The End, were a long way from finished with Pocket Edition. We have all kinds of interesting and exciting things planned - youll see!
In the meantime, prepare yourself for the showdown with the Ender Dragon by watching the trailer above, and get psyched about these other 1.0 features:
Anyway, happy birthday, Pocket Edition! See you all in another five years!
