At MINECON Earth, Mojang official unveiled its next major update for Minecraft, The Update Aquatic.

The update overhauls the game’s oceans by introducing coral, kelp, more types of fish, dolphins, explorable shipwrecks, bubble columns, new water physics, and more. There’s also a new underwater weapon for players to defend themselves with in the form of the trident. This new weapon can be thrown at enemies, used in close-combat, and can also be enchanted.

“The Loyalty enchantment will make it come back to you even after you’ve thrown it, while enchantments like Impaler and Slipstream Dash will… well, we’ll let you use your imagination,” the developer explained.

Prototype footage of the update can be seen in the video below at around the 9-minute mark:

The Update Aquatic is scheduled to arrive in spring next year.
