Remember that holographic presentation Microsoft gave using Minecraft a number of E3s ago? Well, it’s turning into a reality; an augmented kind of reality, that is..

Microsoft today announced Minecraft Earth, a mobile game that lets people build all sorts of blocky creations as they’re walking down the streets and towns in real life. Developer Mojang said that you’ll be able to gather resources, build castles, and fight off creepers, but now through the magic of your phone and augmented reality.

It will be out later this year for iOS and Android, with a beta planned for the second quarter/summer. Check out the trailer below and see if it’s your cup of tea. I know a lot of my friend’s kids and nephews/nieces will want in on this action since Minecraft is still the biggest all-ages game on the planet.
