Mojang has announced the winner of their latest mob vote for Minecraft.
In this vote, players chose between three potential new mobs to add into the game: The Moobloom, Iceloger and Glow Squid. Out of these three, the Glow Squid received the most votes and has earned the right to be added to the Minecraft sometime in the future.
You can read more details about the Glow Squid below, along with the results announcement from the Minecraft Live presentation:
This shimmering sea creature also made its debut in Minecraft Earth, giving me the perfect opportunity to make a surf & turf joke but I won’t since I have already committed to writing a very serious article™. Let’s look at some factual facts instead of spending more time on puns, no matter how cleverly penned. The glow in Glow Squid doesn’t come from a bomb skin care routine but actually refers to the way it literally glows, in the same way that the Enderman’s eyes do. While we’re comparing this candidate to existing mobs, I can tell you that they are pretty similar to the squid that are already swimming around in Minecraft. They won’t attack players or other entities, but their glow is pretty atmospheric. That’s probably why they prefer dark bodies of water – the effect just isn’t the same in an already sun-drenched ocean. If you want to add more marine life to Minecraft and hasten the alleged squid uprising, vote for the Glow Squid!
